Welcome to the forum.

Can you provide some additional details around the kind of budget you are looking at, and what kind of experience do you have (i.e. skill level)? Entry-level vs mid-range bodies are at a significantly different price point but can also have a significant level of different features/ergonomics. Lenses are pretty much a wash whatever body you buy.

Generally a mid-range zoom works as a good walk-around lens, with a prime for portraiture work as a start. If you can only afford one lens to start -- then you may want to default to a mid-range zoom. Lots to consider -- so the more information you can share with us, the more easily we can provide you with further suggestions.

As far as lenses go, a 18-55, and a 50mm F/1.8 would be a great combo at a low price.

I take pictures so quickly, my highschool was "Continuous High".

Both are good cameras - but aren't really in the same category -- the D90 is more akin to the 50D than the T2i. Either way - a mid-range zoom and a prime will be a good start. And - if you haven't already done so, get yourself into a camera shop where you can do a full hands-on comparison of any cameras you may be interested in. An absolute must for any camera purchase.

I believe that the T2i is the lowest entry price point for 1080p video, but I would caution you that 1080p video doesn't mean that the camera is better than the D90. The D90 has a top-mounted LCD, an excellent viewfinder (ok, so the T2i isn't bad either), can work with any Nikon AF lens (and there are some nice older lenses you can pick up on the cheap), and has a much higher build quality than the T2i (although not as good as the new D7000). Which is your first desire -- photography or video? If you really want high quality video, get a DSLR and a separate dedicated HD recorder.

That being said, it should come down to ergonomics -- i.e. which does feel best in your hands.

Tai -- just make sure you get your candidate cameras in your hands -- we can't stress that enough here. The D90 is good, so is the 50D and presumably the upcoming 60D (although reportedly Canon have gone downwards with their build quality from the 50D).
