I currently have a Nikon d70. I'm looking to replace it and really want the d90. There are rumors about a d90 replacement coming out, and I really don't want to wait for that, but would it be foolish to purchase the 90 now? How realistic is it that prices will drop as it gets closer to this "rumored" replacement? Is it silly to wait for a "rumor" in the first place? I'm just looking for other people's opinions. I've been lusting after the 90 for a long time, and now that I'm getting ready to purchase, this rumor has be second-guessing myself. My husband said he saw that the d90 went down in price on many websites for a while, but is back up. How he found this out I'm not sure (he has not been monitoring the prices over the past couple months). My other question: I currently have the Tamron AF 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3. I know the d90 kit lens will be faster. I played with it and feel like I notice a huge difference in the speed. But will it really make that big of a difference in the long run? Will I really miss that difference? I know these are personal opinion questions - I just want to get some general opinions about my choices....should i stick with the d90 body only and keep using my tamron? Or should I go for the whole kit? What would you do? Thanks!
