    Yes i got your point and i understand photography is individual preferences. That is why sharing experiences here will get to learn more from one another. I will try out more with my kit lens meanwhile research more on the lens that suits my preferences more. Thanks for your advices still. Cheers.

    for speed, the AF module plays a part also, since it determines how fast the module is able to confirm the focus. if the AF module is more sensitive to light, it will be able to confirm its focus faster. however, the biggest factor of AF speed is still how fast the lenses r able to perform AF. for screw drive lenses, the in-built AF motor of the camera body is the one of the determinants for their AF speed, while for AF-S lenses, it's the motors in the lenses that matter most. if the lens has long focus throw, it will take a longer time to focus from infinity to minimum focusing distance. it will be noticeable if u shoot a distant object firstly, n then shoot a subject which is alot closer to u. this is also why the 80-200 f/2.8D comes with a focus limit switch, to make the focus throw shorter n reduce the time of "hunting" if u shoot at a subject at any distance above 3m from u. u shld also see how fast the 80-200 f/2.8D focuses on bodies like d3s, even for still shots.
    Thks for the explaination, sadly I dun have a lot of frd who own a D3 equivalent

    Why I say it focus fast is the torque that it gives out while on the d90. Still newbie haven't see / play with a lot equipment. Pardon me ya

    When in doubt, head down to NSC to try out, they have an extensive range of their current lineup for you to toy with.

    no worries, im just sharing the info on what i had learnt online faster AF speed gives u greater "AF kick-back" fyi (according to ken rockwell). it feels as if the lens jumped for a moment when it starts to focus or when it stops. i can feel it too when used on my d300s.

    This 80-200 focuses by rotating its huge front elements very quickly. As they rotate, they move in and out.

    Because AF is so fast, these front elements spin very quickly and start and stop abruptly. This generates torque reactions, exactly as a real car flips around as you blip the throttle.

    This isn't a big deal, but you will feel this as you shoot on the faster pro cameras like the F5 and D3.

    can 17-35mm f2.8 Len use on D90?

    Any AF-I, AF-D and AF-S lens can works on a D90. I googled and checked, this piece is an AF-S lens with aperture ring. Which means it can work on all Nikon's DSLR and most(?) film SLR.

    Do you mean this lens?


    If so, then yes it'll work. Though for D90, I think the AF-S 17-55 f/2.8 is more suitable, and probably slightly cheaper.
    An even cheaper alternative is Tamron 17-50/2.8, or Sigma 17-50/2.8, or Tokina (I think it is) 16-50/2.8

    ZCA. quite sometime back I mentioned. Photos with my D90 is just a tag soft when compare to my previous dslr D80. Went down to NSC and ask them to help take a look. They are quite helpful. They did a sharpness test with a chart and everything is good as it should be and even show me a couple of settings that will help to ensure everything is really sharp. --->user issue here.

    hehehehe... but the sharpness settings only apply to the SOOC JPGs.
    I find the D90 able to capture more detail than the D80

    hehe...

    anyway, I got a D90 brochure when I was there.
    After going through it, I realised that there are many things a D90 is capable of that I never thought of.
    Going through the manual is kinda tedious.
    The brochure can be used as a quick reference of the capabilities of the D90 and the manual to tell us in detail how to do it.
    I will try to find if there is any kind soul who has scanned the brochure and make it available on the internet.

    here it is. In-camera retouch.

    Probably other bodies have it. Maybe I am just suah ku (don't know). Most likely many of you folks have already know.

    for photo competition that require straight from the camera submission, will they accept photos with such post processing in-camera?

    Hahaha I know it's there but never used it
    D80 also has retouch menu, though probably not as extensive.

    I'm interested in all of it except for image overlay.
    I wonder if the pro-bodies have such functions too?
    If competition accept these in-camera function and the pro-bodies don't have it, we may have an edge over the pro during such competition

    This overlay function is very interesting. If you take few shots of a same scene on a tripod with bracket exposure (same aperture) and do an overlay, it looks very much like HDR. You can use the saved overlay image again to lay on top of another exposure. In this way you can overlay 3 images of different exposure (same aperture). I set the "bkt" function using "A" priority. The images must be in "raw". I have not been following all the threads of D90 so I am not sure if this has been on the forum before.
    I do this overlay function sometimes and the result is very much acceptable to me. I love it. I can take a step by step instruction but I think that this is good enough for most of you guys since you are so digital savvy unlike us older folks.

    That's an interesting function indeed, though I must admit that I've never made use of it.
    Kinda prefer to do my post-processing on the PC
    D90's dynamic range is pretty decent in RAW mode.

    You need to shoot it as what KYFoong has described (bracketed shots whilst tripod-mounted), and not the usual 'pseudo-HDR' modes which a lot of the consumer cams (and even iPhone) are now touting.

    it is always good to explore to see which one will give you the best result
