Hello well, I have to pick a camera for our marketing department. I've been bringing in from home my D50. The company is starting to see that we need a camera for the department, with a few lenses (all I have is the 18-55) I've been taking great photos, and they realize I have the talent. Now I'm just a Graphic Designer, who's taken a class in photography in college, and play around. I like my D50 just fine, and I honestly just want a better lens. I take product photography, and photos of our products in the field. I do have a natural creative talent. I think my biggest strength is composing the photo, framing it right, finding the right angle. I get the basics of lighting. I love using limited depth of field. So I get the basics, and I use manual settings. I just don't get into the technical side tooo much. I would love some advice on what to get the department. D40 - D90 or D5000 I want to stay with Nikon, because I already have one, and I don't have much time for a learning curve. plus I like Nikon. and what lenses would be best. We are looking at a budget of 1500-2000 (max) thanks for your input! there is so much information out there, and it's overwhelming. I know that if I do go with a D90, I will need to justify the extra expense.
