the image quality of the Coolpix 880 comes very close to the 990, you will
loose the wonderful aperture range (F2.8 and F7.8 instead of F2.5, F2.8,
F3.1, F3.5, F3.9, F4.4, F4.9, F5.5, F6.2 and F7.0), some flexibility in
control and a few mm of zoom as the 880 only has a 2.5 x optical zoom.
The 880 also appears to have a very slightly smaller internal buffer making
burst abilities a little less than the 990. Regarding digiscoping, it must
be noted that the 880 presents a larger lens than the 990, with a fixed
body and a moving zoom.
