Canon 80d Final Thoughts

"I do love the camera."

Works great for my daughter and her film school. It is worth the trade-off when doing astro-photography. But I'd buy from Canon again, so they've got that going for them. This Canon 80d is built tough. Many more options than available to entry level models.
