Hello all!! I'm new to the forum, but also to new the world of photography. I've always had a passion for it, but was never in a position to get a camera that I was able to afford. Just recently, my situation has changed and I was able to get a camera. I've gotten myself a Nikon D90, with a 18-105mmm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens. I actually just got it today, ordered it a few days ago. The part I'm confused about is this...is this a good first camera? I've done lots of research, and talked to many people that I've seen out and about taking pictures with their cameras, they all seemed to agree that the D90 was a good camera for me to learn on and grow with. This camera seemed to be a solid camera that would keep me busy for years to come. Now, with the announcement of the NEW D3100, I was wondering if this would be a better camera to start off with, or would the D90 still be a better deal overall for camera performance. What are your thoughts; wait for the D3100 launch in a few weeks, or keep what I have...?
