Yes you would be perfectly fine with DX - the only reason you would want to spend more money on FX lenses is if you wanted to eventually move to full frame (D700).

From my understanding the D3000 and D5000 are the newer sensor, just crippled versions of them. It's definitely not worse then the old ones, it's not much better though.

would there be any way to bypass the setting??? like a hack...

not that i know of. i may be wrong, but from what i understand, the sensor on DX cameras is a small sensor, not a full/ full frame sensor. i think you can use full frame lenses, but if you use a DX lens on a full frame camera, you dont get the full frame, you get a ring of black around the image.

I'm sure someone hacked it out there, but I wouldn't want to put that on my close to $1000 camera and void the warranty...

Isnt D3000 like $600, the one that replaced the D40 as I was told by sales rep. So how much is D90? Like $900? The price makes the difference I guess.

Money wise, how is D3000? Is it really as D40 ?

I'd save up and get the D90 - once you get into this, you'll kick yourself and spend more on the upgrade. Exactly what I ended up doing... and I still don't have the camera I want!!

These guys usually have the best price.

Body Only
http://www.adencamera.com/prod-overv...430&Category=6

With 18-105VR (good price!)
http://www.adencamera.com/prod-overv...431&Category=6

With standard 18-55VR
http://www.adencamera.com/prod-overv...910&Category=6

If you can't make it to them, print their ad - Futureshop will honour it. Henry's HATES to honour these guys prices, so you'll get a hard time there.

Not bad, if we each pitch in 500 bones and change, that would work. Thanks for the info.

the d90 is about $950 just for the body... mine was $1179 lol. they had a sale on a couple weeks ago and the one person working wasn't sure how long the sale was on for. so then i when a week ago so it wasn't on sale. anyways i talked to the person i was dealing with and they gave me it for the sale price... plus i got a load of other things and got a little more of a discount too. camera with uv and polarized lens, professional stand, case, 8 gig memory card, and pelican hard case.


picked mine up today with a load of other stuff. waiting for battery to charge

reading the manual too, looks like a must lol.

Better yet - spend sometime and do the beginner and intermediate course at Sheridan in photography (part of the photgraphy certificate) you'll leanr alot more there. I'm not one of those people who can learn from reading. At least not any more! I grauated university over 10 years ago!

I sold my older camcorder just to pitch in more cash to get d90. There is more to learn with an SLR. That's what I think.
