Hey, for your next purchase i suggest the vertical grip for that sexy D80. Works wonders for your grip and you can have both batteries in it at once. Plus you get vertical controls (both dials, shutter button and AE/AF button).
Fair enough, my hands are quite large-ish. I'll take photos of how it fits in my hand with and without it. Uno momento, por favor.
EDIT: Here we go. Without and with. As you can see, without it is just too small for my hand.
EDIT #2: the difference in colour between the lens and body isn't that big, the surface of the lens has a weird finish and reflects the flash a lot more. Can also be seen in this post, i thought sigma lenses lose their black finish over time, but it looks like it's down to the flash being used for the photo.
It's funny.. I often hear Canon people argue that Nikon needs a 70-200 f/4. It seems people forget that you can buy an 80-200 2.8 new for about the same price... but you get the same pro optics with 2.8 glass
