I just joined this forum in search of information and experiences about the Canon 80D camera, lenses, and related gear. The topic title reflects my frustration with the search engine's inability to return a three-character string such as 80D.
At present, my Canon experience is limited to a film-using model A-1 with an f1.4 50mm lens, and it has been a while since it was out of its case. I am considering purchasing a Canon 80D body, and will consider lenses either as in a kit, or separately, as value and performance may indicate.
I have received Tony's box of books and videos, and have supplemented them with a few other 80D-specific books by well-known authors. This is not to imply that I have my heart set on an 80D exclusively, but its value-to-performance ratio appears favorable compared with other DSLRs. Nor have I ruled-out a mirror-less body, but the larger unit appears marginally advantageous.
So, if you have comments on the merits or demerits of the Canon 80D, whether or not they rise to a deal-maker or breaker level for a purchase decision, I am interested to read them. Comparisons with other gear, either available or to be announced imminently, are welcome.
