Soo... the D90... it is a little bit smaller than my current one, but a few ounces heavier... the picts we took seemed to come out well.. it has a LOT of things to learn... but since my current lenses work with it the wife thought it was worth the extra money for the body...

So, we ordered a refurb from B&H at about $720... that is $130 less than new... thanks for all the info...

the d90 is very very good. there is nothing you cant accomplish with it. i have plans to go full frame with a d700 but marilyn loves her d80. i sold off all my pro zooms and went nikon prime lenses. the size ,weight and low light ability are worth taking those extra couple of steps from not having a zoom.

But I understand not wanting the manual focus on the old lenses. How about a reconditioned camera? I got a refurbished Nikon through Adorama. Here is a reconditioned by Nikon d90 camera body: 25446B Nikon D90 Digital SLR Camera Body - Refurbished by Nikon U.S.A.

wow martha i thought i was the only one who would admit to reading kens stuff. he is ridiculed and laughed at on most photography sites . but ill admit it, marilyn and i learned more from his photography articles then anywhere else over the years... i would have to say he has been the biggest influence over our photography.

if anyone would like to see our galleries ill be more then happy to send you a link .just d/m me. you can see alot of kens influence on us.

there is so much of kens influence on our work,heres a few samples of what we do
