    I currently have a Nikon D40 and am looking to upgrade to another Nikon DSLR. The main things I'm looking for are:


    • affordable price
    • ISO 100
    • AF compatibility with a wider range of lenses
    • something that will keep me from being back here in a year asking about upgrades from it
    I've been thinking about a D90. Can anyone offer any other suggestions or affirmations that a D90 would be a wise upgrade?

    Aside from taking random pictures of gatherings of friends or of my cats, I use my camera about 6-10 serious times per year.

    I upgraded from D60 to a D90. No regrets...it's an awesome camera.

    hmm, the D90 would be an awesome choice to upgrade. But the real question is do you really need it?

    I just upgraded from the D40 to the D90. The D40 is a fantastic camera and Id recommend it to any new photographer. the image quality is stunning, its easy to use and its incredible value. but for me the D90 was a necessary upgrade, 4.5 FPS and flash commander where what sold it for me.

    what do these 6-10 serious times entail?...d90 seems like a lot of camera for cat portraits, and impromptus...
    though if you have the money and love photography...go for it...wont do you any harm.

    Plus, for some people, getting a camera that's a bit more serious might give them the push they need to be a little bit more serious about their photography.
