I know there are other threads on this matchup and I have read them but I still don't see a clear cut winner. I like to take a lot of pictures of street action, sports and landscapes. I was set on the D90 but the 50D is not that much more $$$. I know most of the specs for both from dpreview.com but which one comes with a better lense in the kit (I don't have the cash to splurge on a better lense at the moment so I will have to make due with the kit)? I also heard that the lense with the D90 kit creates distorted, rounded images and that worries me. I like the 6.3 fps but can prolly live with 4.5 but the 11 point AF vs 9 point is nice but I can prolly live with either. What is the best deal for the money and what camera would fit me best pertaining to what I like to shoot. I have owned many slrs but this is my first dslr purchase so I wanna make it count. I need to keep it under $1500 for a body and lense so if you have any suggestions let me know. I am open to the fact that I am wet behind the ears with using dslrs but I have read a lot about them.
