Get A Grip.
definitely a nice add-on to the d80, if you can justify the cost.

pros:

-despite being made of plastic, has a solid feel.

-adds weight, but balances out the camera, especially with a big lens.

-really helps with portrait (tall) orientation. i got this because too many of my shots were horizontal due to awkward ergonomics of changing orientation. now it feels more natural to flip the body 90 degrees and hit the grip shutter button.

-the grip is nice and grippy.

-lockable grip shutter (you need this) and AE-F/AE-L button

-command dial and sub-command dial

-runs on 2 batteries or 6 AA's. havent had a chance to check out the AA's, but two fully-charged el-e3e's means you can flash with confidence.

-works with d80's battery meter to give you accurate info on shots taken and battery strength.

-has tripod attachment plug on the bottom

-seamlessly integrates into camera...

A Must for D80 Owners
Update: I've been using the MB-D80 for about four months and recently bought the Nikkor 70-300 VR lens. I want to underscore what others have said about battery use: the D80 alone uses a lot of power, and the VR lens only increases the drain on the battery. The MB-D80 with two Nikon EN-EL3e batteries is really the only way to go if you want to be sure not to run out of juice while shooting. (Note: the MB-D80 does not come with a battery.) The unit completely runs down one battery before switching to the second, so you can pop the discharged battery out of the pack, put it in the charger if AC power is handy, and keep shooting on the second battery; the first battery will be charged in a couple of hours. If you manage to go through both Nikon batteries during a shoot you can pop in AA batteries with the extra holder included with the MB-D80.

As I mentioned in my review of the D80 itself, if you're accustomed to the pro Nikon cameras of old (F2 through F4) and are...

I like it a lot! A nice accessory for the D80
This is a very nice accessory for the D80 camera. The main deal with it is that you can either equip it with two D80 batteries, or you can use it to power your D80 with several AA batteries--a nice thing to be able to do in a pinch.

The MB-D80 is built from strong impact plastic of the same time of which the D80 is made. This makes it relatively light, which is nice. You can add this to the D80 without making your camera unduly heavy and unpleasant to carry. And having two batteries rather than one is nice when one is taking a lot of pictures in locales where it is not convenient to recharge one's batteries frequently. And I like the shape of the MB-D80--it provides a nice shape and heft that makes the D80 more nifty to hold. Portrait shooters will appreciate the extra command dials and the vertical shutter release.

The thing that I especially like about the MB-D80 is that it provides the D80 with metering for each battery; one can see precisely the status...
