This sort of relates to this. Any DSLR owner should watch it.

+1 -- good video, for sure. Nice Jeremey Clarkson impersonation as well. And I like the Nikon strap on the Canon! What fun -- well done.

Well, I went for the Nikon D90 with the kit that had both the standard (18-105mm AF-S DX ED VR lens) and also included (70-300mm AF-S ED-IF VR Lens)

Thanks for the comments. I cannot wait until the camera gets here.

Of course I got it through the support us links using Amazon. :wink:

So my D90 arrived yesterday. I'm happy as I see the UPS truck pull up in front the house. I watch the driver put the box on the seat, then my heart drops and I watch him push the box out the truck watching it drop to the street below. He walks around the truck, picks it up and delivers it to the front door. It was just one of those situations where I had to keep my mouth shut or I would have come unglued. Fortunately, everything is in good working order. Thank goodness for good packing.

Great Stuff :D

Are you enjoying shooting with it, so far, then?

He used autofocus, auto everything, and the camera probably wasn't even stable. The camera would have selected a small aperture creating bokeh and blurring a lot of the image out.

Bad Photography in my opinion.

I'm glad that you're enjoying your new D90! Can't wait to see some shots! If the delivery person from UPS dropped over $1000 worth of photography equipment, I think that I would have a major freak out in front of him.
"Can't you see that it says 'Fragile'?" I would yell to him. :lol:

Good point about Kai using complete auto mode, perhaps the test should've been a tad bit more controlled, although the central message about Lens>Body still stands out.

Love it so far. Just taking many pics as I go through the settings, most unusable as I play with things. One thing that stands out is how well it takes pictures without the flash. No flash on my point & shoot, and everything would be dark.
