    What do you want to know Geoff.

    I haven't officially "talked" about it yet. I've mentioned that I may have acquired one, but really haven't been comfortable yet to say one way or the other if I'm going to keep it, if you should spend the money - etc. that sorta talk.

    Well it was always on my mind that I should end up with a second camera at some stage - but that won't be for a year or so in reality - but I am keeping my ear to the ground as it were...
    I already looked at the D300 and the D700 and they are a bit too big and heavy for my taste. I don't like the D60.
    I DO like my D80 and suspect I would also like the D90 - so I was wondering what your impressions were if you have purchased one.
    Is it similar in use to the D80 - (aside from getting lovely wide angle lenses stuck in it...!!!). Is it really a lot less noisy? Is that bigger screen really as nice as they say
    you know - generally interested in how you find it as you must be one of the first here to get one...

    Well, Geoff. I don't mean to sound so. . ."in the now", but if given the choice to shoot with the D80 or D90, I'd choose the D90. If I was asked, before my D80 broke, where I'd spend my money on a body upgrade - I'd say D700.

    Now, I can appreciate your lack of enthusiasm for the larger, heavier bodies. But, if I was going to spend a year saving for a second camera, I'd make my D80 the back seater and get something fancy - Nikon has something in pipe for this spring and apparently its Big - I'd wait to see what that something is before I decided what to do with my money. I bought the D90 out of necessity, I may sell it along with the D80 when it gets back - I don't know yet. But, it certainly is a fun camera.

    Do note that I think the update to the camera in your hand, is never enough to reason to upgrade. i.e. D80 > D90. I needed a camera and wanted the video. But, all else considered, and upgrade would be a D300-D700. Thats my .02 as of now.

    D90 is still certainly an upgrade from the D80 in terms of sensor performance. Auto ISO is also much more usable.

    the 14-24/ 2.8 is like my exotic italian sports car. but the 35/2 is my ute...my workhorse, Mr Dependable. it was wonderful using it again after my little fling with the exotic side of the world.

    shame about those trees, would've liked to have gotten a compeltely clean sky.

    So you're saying you like the 35mm f/2, Mr. Rooz?

    I'm considering that for an all-purpose lens.

    Kill the little bugger first. Sorry.

    A few months back (the week I bought the cam) he invaded the house and I had screaming kids, wife etc. What's a brave fella to do but chemical warfare. I couldn't think how to get him out of the house alive.

    So I took shots the next day and posted them on POTD with the 18-200 and crummy tripod. I then left him in a yoghurt container. When I got the new lens last week I remembered him and took some shots with a proper setup. Much more satisfying.

    Still I'd rather do it live, in which case get them mating or just drying their wings from hatching.
