Hey All, I've been trying to read a bunch online and there's just a plethora of information I don't understand. I really enjoy taking pictures recreationally and will likely take a college course sometime soon to learn more. All that said I'm ready to buy a DSLR and I am very torn on what to get. It seems D90s get tons of rave reviews but the age of the camera is a concern to me. It would be frustrating to get it then see something better come out shortly after. A couple questions that have come to mind. First I want something I won't out grow for quite some time. If there is more complexity to it, fine -I'll learn it in time. Second I see a ton of DSLRs and I can't help but ask myself... Although I can afford it, do I really need a D90 or equivalent? How much of difference is it really going to make in image quality? What cameras should I be looking at? If I went with something in the $500 range instead of 1k, am I still going to be happy or will I regret it? Lastly for reference I'm coming from a simple HP 8MP pocket camera.
