    1. So what if most people will only ever own 2-3 lenses that all manufacturers have? It doesn't matter if a brand has 1,000 lenses if you'll only ever use 2-3.

    2. Lucky you. Most people use the "same brand as my friends so I can share lenses" excuse, but there are very very very few cases where people are willing to lend out their prized lenses.

    oh... I'm thinking not buying at the Comex itself...but buying during that time....so i get the same bundle (freebies given by nikon) at today current price. Does it work this way?

    I think the current RRP is $16xx or something, but outside selling $14xx. So I assume comex they will bundle say more freebies at still $16xx, but I'm able to get at $14xx outside with the additional freebies?

    I'm planning just the D90 kit, with a 35mm/1.8G lens, and probably a nikon battery grip,wireless remote, sirui tripod and b+w filters.
    As mentioned by others. Pc shows in general don't offer cheaper prices. Prices are typically RRP with lots of freebies thrown in to hook the newbie. The freebies are cheap anyway and many are easily overgrown.
    Better to look for a reputable camera shop like those mentioned here in CS.

    Thanks bros...
    I was thinking that.. how many times buying a new camera.. let's say within 10 years?
    so I wanted to skip entry level cameras.. mainly.. that's it. (don't get me wrong..)
    For example, a friend of mine wanted to shift to upper grade camera, currently he's been used D90 for 2yrs..

    and seems like, pay D90 price.. able to get K-7 which is flagship of Pentax brand..

    Pls, correct me if my idea is wrong.. appreciate bros!

    just getting k-7 for the sake of being different seems really counterintuitive.

    i agree that you should give k-7 a chance, but the reason you have stated is very ........

    photography is not about having the latest model of the latest brand or things like that...

    its about enjoying what you do and capturing emotions..

    don't let the world get to you~!!

    For cleaning kit, any advise what cleaning kit (any particular brand) I should get? Or I should get separates? I think I need 1 - 2 cloth, 1 lens pen and 1 blower.

    Wait till Photokina then decide....since K7 and D90 are supposed to be replaced in these few months.

    So either get these new models or get the K7 and D90 at lower pricing after new ones are announced...

    hmm.....i think it will be quite some time for the D90 price to come down until it is announced, at least it does not seem the case for the D3000 even though the D3100 is announced?

    I'm travelling overseas for 3 months in mid sep, so hoping to get a camera before then....so I'm pretty much settled for the D90.

    if you're settled then just go to the store (reputable store) and tell them what you want.. get ur camera, pay and then go home n start shooting to practice before going overseas..

    you don't want to go overseas blur blur..

    oh ya, see if freebies can get extra batt.. traveling sometimes better to have spare...

    I'm getting a battery grip and spare battery as well, so in case I dun get a chance to charge my battery for a couple of days, I can fall back on AA batteries.

    getting a spare battery would be good. Oh ya... mentioning about AAs batteries, would even come in handy in case both of your lithium batt low energy. perhaps need to stand by more. get more rechargables too.
