"Outstanding Advanced Amateur DSLR"5.0 starson by bewarnock
Pros: High image quality with easy to use menu functions. Very fast to focus and shoot.
Cons: A little too heavy and plastic lens mount on 18-105. With the multi-spot focus screen it is sometimes hard to select the desired focus subject.
Summary: We waited for a long time to upgrade from our fine Nikon D50 and the wait was well worth it. Although the D50 took many very good images, the D90 is a big step forward in color rendition and image quality. Highly recommend it, but not necessarily as the first DSLR for the consumer as this is a somewhat complicated camera. The learning curve from the D50 was not too big as the controls are quite similar.
