CF-D80 SEMI-SOFT CASE f/D80
Strengths: Good quality material, will fit D80 body + 18mm-135mm lens nicely
Weakness: None so far
The compact case is very nice for the digital SLR since I did not want to get a bulky camera bag. This actually fit the D80 with the lens kit and the lens hood altogether. With the strap, it is essentially similar to a camera bag.

Nikon CF-D80 Camera Case
Strengths: Very good at protecting a valuable piece of equipment.
Weakness: Can't think of any at the moment.
I was looking for something that would be smaller than a camera bag and this case seemed to fit the bill. I've only had it for a day or so, but find it to be perfect for my needs. It offers great protection for my D80 and the 18-135mm lens that came with the camera. I think most people will find it to be just what they were looking for.

Custom made Nikon D80 case
Strengths: Small size, light
Weakness: There is no velcro or zipper
It is a nice small case custom made for Nikon D80 DSLR. The camera fits perfectly, and the case doesn't add any additional volume. I was looking for that exact case because I hate carrying the huge camera bag for a short trip. It will not replace the big bag with compartments for all you equipment (lenses, etc.), but it's just a nice addition which is really convenient.

This ain't like the good old days of film SLRs
Strengths: Protects camera and lens; well constructed.
Weakness: awkward to put on and take off, bulky, inconvenient when shooting... it kinda gets in the way unless you take it off completely.
This is exactly the same as those bags where you point the camera nose-first into the bag (so the camera back is at the top of the bag) then "shut the door" behind it. The only difference is less padding and no belt loop or shoulder strap -- it relies on the camera body strap for that, allowing the strap to come out at the juncture of the front part of the case, and the back. I frankly was...

I frankly was disappointed that there isn't a nice, formfitting, two-part case, as they used to make for film SLRs. Come to think of it, though, with the LCD on the back, and all the buttons, it would have been "interesting" to make a case that would be functional for shooting as well as protection, but still be a form-fitting "old school style" case. I bet someone could do it, though... imagine flexible points along the back left side of the case, to allow one to press the four control buttons, etc.
Considering such an alternative doesn't seem to be available, this case is better than nothing.
