    Ok you are a carrot waiting to be chopped lol. Why pay more when you can have the same thing for less?

    Look around your friendly neighbourhood shops(i like John 3:16 at funan) and you will realise the price is much lower(by around 200-300?). And do your home work.

    D90 + 18-55 lens for $1799.....????? you gotta be kidding, right?
    D90 body alone can be had for around $1360 if I'm not mistaken. So the 18-55 costs... $430??

    D90 (2x8GB SD Card, Cleaning Kit, Bag, Screen Proctored, Card Reader, Tripod)
    40D (2x8GB CF, 1x4GB CF, Card Reader, Bag, Screen Protector, Tripod)

    As a first time buyer are those freebies good as I do not have any of those?

    Putting the 40D side by side with D90

    MP 10.1 vs 12.3
    ISO 100-3200 vs 200-6400
    Max Shutter 1/8000 vs 1/4000
    Continuous Drive 6.5 vs 4.5
    Storage Type CF vs SD

    What other spec should I like out for if I intend to use it for action, outdoor shooting?

    frankly, all these specs are no guide for u. only serve to confuse u.


    i'd say u wun make any mistake buying either camera.

    mistakes u may make

    1. bought items at high price (u will never buy at the cheapest price, but at least at a reasonable one).

    2. buy, then UPGRADE

    3. tink tat higher spec camera make better pic.

    jus buy, learn to use it properly, and enjoy photography.

    hope to see your works soon.




    ***perhaps only one difference is somewat critical, CF vs SD.
