    Re: Body or Kit - The Wiser Decision?

    There's no point in keeping my D90 either. But I simply cannot part with it. Turning it into my car camera with the 18-200 on it.

    I hear what you guys say in relation to keeping the D90 and I would also be very reluctant to part with mine if it wasn't for a fair price being offered against the new camera.

    The dealer in question currently offers a 75 trade-in allowance in addition to the value of the camera which adds up to more than I could reasonably expect to get if I sold it privately and then tried to negotiate discount on a cash sale.

    Isn't it surprising how much we over-estimate what expensive items we bought years ago are actually worth when you consider selling them!

    I know that if I don't let the D90 go when I have the chance, it will be resigned to a shelf in my office but nevertheless looked upon with affection.

    Silcker55 You have the correct attitude. Let go of it now while it still has some value. Most of us have too much stuff that just collects dust.

    I kinda get both sides of this argument but it's hard parting with stuff you paid a lot of money for until you come to terms with the fact that it is was it is and that you might be better to take the money and run.

    Passing the item onto a dealer who is playing fair makes me feel a bit happier also in the knowledge that someone will buy the item off him and gain some support/warranty which I could not offer if I sold it privately.

    Winners all-round...

    I have just placed my part exchange order for the D7500 + 18-140 Kit (collecting it tomorrow all being well)

    I went from D5100 to a D7100 what a shock, so give yourself some time to adjust.

    Looking forward to seeing your pictures.

    Initially I went from a D90 to a D7100. The difference in sensor size alone was amazing. Plus the D7100 (and the D7500) don't have the optical low pass filter which bumps up sharpness compared with the D90.

    I was the same way wanting to hold onto my D90 for a long time - in fact I had two D90 bodies that I held onto for quite a while. But I never wanted to go back to them. Before I sold them, I took a few sample pics. Honestly the image quality comparison isn't apples to apples. And the D90's monetary value will continue to decrease over time. Making the choice to trade it in is a good one.

    The technology of the D7500 has so much more to offer, you will be amazed. Glad you got off the fence and made your decision.

    What do you shoot. Refurb Z6 costs about what a D7500 goes for. You can use your Dx lenses on it in DX more but can use ti as an excellent FX camera when start collecting a few selected full frame lenses. The Z6 is better in every way and a lot more durable.

    Yes, I did take a brief look at the Z series and have little doubt this will be the way to go next time round but the difference in cost at the moment (new) is just too much for me to justify. I didn't consider second-hand, it's not something which appeals to me but each to their own

    Refurbs already... This makes me wonder about the quality control of the first batch.

    I'm not buying anything new until it has been out for a while plus, I'm slowly moving towards Fuji. I really like the IQ difference that their prime lenses give me.
