I went to the store today and handled both the t2i and the D90 and really liked the D90, it just feels alot more sturdy. I think I have made up my mind on the Nikon. Are older Nikon lenses easy to come by? Is there a way to fit a Canon lens on a Nikon with and adapter? I know somebody with some Canon lenses. They did tell me that since the I believe it's the D7000 just came out to replace the D90 that they wouldn't be getting anymore D90's in, will they still be available online for a while? I need to get it on Amazon since I will have some gift cards but not for a month or two. I would be upset if they were gone or the price went up since the inventory would be less on them.

yes you can use canon lens on a nikon with an adapter but say good bye to auto focus.

I believe there will be D90s on sale for a while now. Theres a big price gap between the D5000 and D7000 otherwise :shock:

Also, no unfortunately you cant use canon lenses on Nikon bodies, but you can the other way around, due to the flange distance being larger on Nikon mounts. Ie you can mount a Nikon lens on a Canon body.

I am not surprised you found the feel of the D90 more sturdy to the T2i. If you had the 50D in hand, you would find it is a closer match in quality to the D90. At the end of the day, the T2i is still and entry-level camera -- albeit an expensive one when compared to some of the other entry-level offerings.

Personally, I would stay away from cross-mounts and adapters as much as possible. It's just adding another layer (literally and figuratively) to the equation.

The D90 will have a life for quite some time still -- Nikon position the D7000 above the D90 and will continue to sell both side-by-side at least until stock runs out -- and from what I understand, there is plenty of stock still.

I think you will find the D90 to be an excellent piece of kit.
