Yeah I was thinking it would be along the lines of the 18-200VR lens but only 95mm less. So if say you were looking to buy a D80 w/18-135mm, you could spend $200-300 more and get the D90 kit

LMAO I was thinking if you're out shooting you can use it to store batteries and stuff in a cool (as in temp) dry bag.

You are stronger then me, The D90 has a lot going for it. I want (but likely will not have anytime soon. ) Then again, looks like you have kick-ass video equipment already... (?)


add this to the marketing blitz - viral video blitz from Nikon on the D90...

Forget the video on the D90 (which does look good)

The D90 fits pretty well between your two choices on everything, including price. The Body only option is $1000.00 and it pretty much has the D300 sensor.

Curious what else is setting you against the D90. (I was thinking about the D80 as well, since new its going to be under $700 soon.) The thought of useable ISO 3200, 12.3 meg sensor and 3 inch LCD has me thinking D90...

actually, i did some more research and reading on it, i think, it'd be a nice upgrade for the both of us... i read some stuff about the video feature, and some of the stuff makes me wanna get it now, and i wonder what my price will be once its offered through my work cuz i get dissssscounts for nikon

the D80 is $730 which is about $250 less than what it retailed when it came out. IDK if Nikon will go any lower cause you have the D60 priced around $700 w/lens. I was at my local camera store and the sales guy said they stopped shipping the D80. IMO it's what you really want in a camera.

If you don't need all the bells and whistles that the D90 has, then go with the D80. I want to upgrade too. A few things I'm having problems with on my D50 is the ISO and viewing my pics. When I shoot concerts I kinda have to guess if the pic is focus. It's hard to tell when you're shooting in low light. Supposidly the D90 LCD screen lets you view more. I was looking at D300 too, but if I go with the D90 I would be saving $800. $800 = another prime. I don't really need live view or video.

All the in camera editing seems nice. Fish eye I haven't seen that in any of the P&S cameras. CMOS vs CCD ?? 3fps vs 4.5fps??

decisions decisions

CMOS not only gives speed, but allows that wicked ISO, 1600 and 3200 (6400 with software.)
The Chase Jarvis video/demo quote (in the link above) that stood out to me was them talking about a set-up to shoot in low light and the said "1600 ISO was dreamy." 1600-800-400-200, so 1600 to 200 ISO comparision is 4 full stops. i.e. a shot that would take a 20 second exposure comes down -> 20-10-5-2.5. A 20 second exposure would now be a 2.5 second shot. wow. (hoping I have the comparision right, ha.)

D80=$730 body only, D60 $700 w/ kit lens. There is room to come down yet... D90 $1000. for body

and if I got a D80, it would be off craigslist for less then $550.00 Seen several quality examples at $600 in the last few weeks. For that matter I have seen 2 D300's for $1,250-1300.00 . . . (not sure how legit they were, I didn't bite.)

back to today my D50 still get's the job done, will be two years old to me (bought used) in October month...

Its sort of like lookin at an M3 or an M3 sedan, while driving a 328, but only cheaper! yeah, A D90 is WAY cheaper! lol

yeah I'm thinking about Nikon history. I remember seeing a D70 for around $600 when the D80 was $1000. I paid around $500 for my D50. I'm talking new, in store. I went to the local camera store today and they were all sold out of the D80. I don't think it will get any lower since there aren't any in stock. I did see a D80 for $450, nice. All of this is the electronic game. My D50 will be 3yrs old in Nov. and I have a year left on the warrantee. D90 would be a nice upgrade, and D300 would be even nicer.


Yeah I opted for my 328ci instead of the 330ci. I figure they both will go 120mph and have 2 cup holders lol why spend the extra $$
