    To be honest - I am not awfully excitable about the latest and greatest
    in cameras - although I do take a healthy interest.
    I will just carry on snapping up photos when I get the time, now, and probably
    not give it much thought - unless I see a post with a specific question in a Forum.
    The camera fits, does what I want it to. I am happy.

    Just a quick follow-up as I found as solution to the video issue noted earlier - that was pushing me to the D7000. Problem: on the D90 in live view and aperture priority, begin recording and sweep across different brightness levels. Notice how the aperature doesn't hold as it readjusts through the entire pan. Now repeat, but this time holddown the AE-L/AF-L button. Nice and clean! With video, you are doing short recordings and putting them together in a story line. Now I can work on a sellable professional level product to suppliment my stills!

    Incidently, Rooz and others. There are some Australians who are doing absolutely cutting edge DSLR video of real estate.

    Geoff, I'm sure you will enjoy the D90 as the experiments begin on what it can do!

    I too picked up a used D90 last week. I debated that vs a 7000 for almost 3 months. I figured better value for the price, considering I'm still learning. I'm keeping my D40 as my wife likes using it, and it will be a handy backup if ever needed. I'm loving it already. The cash I saved can go to a really nice fast lens.

    ...thank you. And funny that I have so few posts; I never thought of that as I have been reading the Nikon DSLR section daily (even a few other topic sections) for many moons....I should try to add my experiences more often, however being considered a junior when you're 7 years from retirement "I think" is a nice feeling.
