    Thanks! I really do love the D40x. it produces fantastic images if I do my part and keep within it's limitations. Feed it enough light and it is perfectly capable. And it was the first DSLR I ever owned But I hate the fact that it doesn't have a focusing motor in it. I've thought about picking up a D90 again just for that reason since they are dirt cheap now. But ideally, I'd like to get my hands on another D700 and 80-200/2.8. I sold my combo RIGHT before the D700 prices started tumbling, so I basically broke even.

    Thanks guys. I posted those in the spirit of the current camera conversation. They are both D50 shots. The first was with a 16-85 lens and the second with a 55-200VR lens.

    Speaking of "older" cameras. A shot from the D70. Taken at a trading post in Williams (AZ).

    Just bought a D90 off of eBay. $316. I paid $1100 3-4 years ago. And over $600 for the D40x 6 years ago. You can find D40's for around $100 now. Ridiculous.
    Now I just need to find a 70-300 vr on the cheap. Anybody?

    I have seen D300 bodies in the $300-$500 range on ebay here in Australia recently.

    The D90's seem to be selling for $400-450 here in the US so I feel like I got a pretty decent deal. The wife was super happy that I didn't spend $1200 on a D700 (yet lol) so I can't complain!

    Congrats on your "new" camera. The D90 is a good choice. A little behind the ISO curve, but if you are like me, most of your images are daylight, or manageable light shots, versus indoor, or night sports. Certainly a step up from the D40x as far as control. I'm looking forward to the images through your viewfinder.

    Yeah my D700 was WORLDS ahead of anything I had ever shot in the ISO department, and I'm really looking forward to another one of those. But the D90 will have to suffice for now

    "The Dark Underbelly". A shot not frequently seen of this iconic landmark. I never have.

    Thanks Tim.
