    D7000 vs D90

    The d90 in my mind is still worthy, especially if you can get it cheap - what do you think?

    Re: D7000 vs D90

    The Nikon Store has refurb D90 for $719.96 Nikon Store - D90 (Refurbished) . At nearly $500 less than the new D7000, it seems to be a good deal for those that do not need all of the advancements of the newer model.

    D90

    Re: D7000 vs D90

    I think the D90 is still a very capable camera. The difference in price is almost like comparing the D90 to the D300. Two different price brackets. The D90 with the 18-105 lens is $100 less than the D7k for the body only. The new camera is very nice and well worth the price. I won't be swapping my D90 any time soon though. It takes great pictures and has all the features I need right now. I don't give a rip about video on a DSLR, some do so great for them. The MP increase is not something I need and for the shooting I do, the fps rate of the D90 is more than sufficient. The all weather body is an improvement and the two SDHC card slots are nice. The D300 and for that matter the D3 are great cameras, and they cost a lot more. I am sticking with my D90. Cost to benefit for me, it is perfect.

    Re: D7000 vs D90

    The D7000 really does not present anything new that I need or even can use. As far as I'm concerned they can trash the video stuff and use the additional CPU space for photography features. If I want videos I can buy a cheep video camera that would do a lot better job. I don't really have any use for the additional mega pixels. The D90's 12.3 mp will allow me to make bigger prints than I can use or have the printing capacity for. A rain jacket for my D90 is all the weather proofing I need. If it gets any wetter than that I won't be shooting in it anyway. I have no need to shoot in both RAW and jpeg at the same time. It's way too easy to convert a NEF file to a jpeg in post processing. So why take up all the extra storage space. If I had the money to spend on an D7000 I would spend it on better glass.

    Joseph,
    Could not have said it better. I am in perfect agreement with you. (and I am keeping my D90)

    D90 will shoot RAW + JPG anyways, that's not something you need a D7000 for.

    Re: D7000 vs D90

    you all have very valid points, for my reasons i honestly need a second body for events so i can easily switch back and forth with a different lens on each. its a pain in the butt to swap lenses and miss some great shots in the process. so for my price range the d7000 is looking very promising.

    Re: D7000 vs D90

    you all have very good points, but it all comes down to what you use your camera for. complaining about dual memory card slots? sure d90 can save as jpegs and raw at the same time, but what if you memory card gets corrupted? hey having two slots will solve that problem. i never used video on my d90 much, but i really got into it with the d7k, if you search youtube videos made with the d7k you can find some very artistic ones that no "cheap" point and shoot camera is gonna let you capture because of the lack of good quality glass and options like the d7k has.
    the d90 takes great shots, i was sad to let mine go, but the d7k shoots so nice at iso 6400, with my d90 3200 was pushing it, but really pushing it, even after pp.
    you can't complaint about weather sealing??? that is a bonus, something that would allow you to take even more pics at any time, if you don't have it fine don't use your camera, but if you have it you will love it when the weather is not so great but your really want to get a picture of that bird or whatever on the fence but the weather is crappy. these are all improvements that will help us enjoy our equipment more, specially is the price is right, and the d7k price is excellent for what you are getting, even if you don't use every single option. I don't use the little green spot on my dial "Auto" but i ain't complaining that is there, if one day i'm lazy, hey is there.
    the D90 is a great camera guys, like i said i loved mine, but i love even more my d7k. i use it more than my d700!!!

    Not to get off the topic. But Im looking at buying a d90 and for that price I might pull the trigger fast. Would buying a refurbished camera be a smart move or would buying a new one be better?
