Bro auden09...the D90 is a very good cam! I was going to go for it but Canon released the 550D. I never had experience with any DSLR but i did do FILM photography and Cinematography which brings the reason for buying an "entry level" DSLR the 550D and for the video capabilities. Using an entry level would make you sharpen basic skills 1st... then move on to something more complicated later... rather than complicated 1st.... just my thought bro! Congrats on your D90...(i really so wanted that cam...but too bad video aint good)lol yes bro. the first DSLR i used was a d300 for my internship 2 yrs back. wanted to get a d90 last yr, somehow i ended up with canon 50D. oh well...wasted money. but now d90's price is real low. $1477 w/ 18-105 kit. like....WOW. the spare batt is $49, battery grip $188 and the 35mm f/1.8 was on offer...so i cldn't resist it. SIGHS. super broke now. anyway my shooting buddies are both Nikon users. well, at least now i can tell ppl the diff between canon and nikon from my own experiences. lol!
