My wife offered to buy me a D90 & 18-135 VR kit in the spring as a late Xmas gift, (And I added 'EARLY B'DAY GIFT' to it for her) from the Antigonish 5c-$1.00 store. I got to handle the camera last fall when it first came out, and loved it. (They have the best pricing on Nikons, too, BTW. Much better than Carsand, Future Shop, B&H etc.) But they're really pricey. I'd hate to have her pay $1400-ish for the camera. Although it is very nice. Plus, she's getting my D50 in return. I also handled the D80 w/18-200VR. That's also quite nice. Plus, it's around $300 (give or take) cheaper. But it's been discontinued for the D90. Is the D90 really worth the extra $$$ for 2mp, 1/2" bigger screen & sensor cleaning? I'd probably never use the video feature, but the other features are nice, especially for the nerdy-gizmo-type like myself. She said she'd pay, just i feel guilty as hell for that much money.
