    Congrats on your D90. I got mine last week and am so happy. I have the kit lens though. Want to try out my friend's 18-200 and see if I want that instead!

  3. Congrats too! :biggrin:
  4. You might want to look at my comparisons of the 18-105 with the 18-200 that I posted in the Lens Lust forum yesterday. The 18-105 is definitely sharper than the 18-200 in their common range, but of course the 18-200 is WAY sharper from 105-200mm!

    How you like it? Is the 18-105 very sharp?

    I'm getting too bad NAS that I just pulled the trigger today, D90 kit.. Can't wait.

    However, I also have 16-85 so will decide to keep which one.

    I think that I'll skip the kit lens and get a 17-55/2.8 and an 85/1.8.
    That should be a good starter combination.

    I moved up from a D40x/17-55 2.8 combo to the D90/17-55 2.8 combo and love it! The 17-55 balances very well with the camera. The 85 1.8 is on my NAS wish list! :smile:

    Got mine on 9/20/08 as a replacement for my D50, which my Daughter grabbed as soon as I got home with the D90.

    I figured the "kit" lens would mimic the optics of the 18-135 which is very sharp except in the corners, and the "kit" lens didn't let me down. I have a 50mm f/1.8 that I rarely use, 50mm just isn't a focal length that fits into my type of shooting. But I also have the 70-300VR and coupled with the 18-105VR I think I have one of the best two-lens combos going.

    It is going to take a while to dial this camera in. The D50 was very simple and there weren't a lot of setup options available. The D90 is just the opposite, you name it and it can be tweaked. Don't like the colors, well you can modify the colors for each of the Picture Controls, or create your own Picture Control, or import a Picture Control from another camera.

    Currently I'm trying to figure out Active D-lighting, there is one additional setting on the D90 than on the D300.

    Only negative so far is the length of time it takes to do things with the large files; the 6MP D50 files were much quicker to process. Everything else so far has been positive, I haven't found one feature that hasn't been improved in some way.

    I'm sorry - I've seen a few people use the term NAS - what is that?

    LOL - Thanks for clearing that up :) 
  15. I got it bad as you see and actually have more Nikon gear than listed!
  16. I got my kit last week and I'm lovin' it! :biggrin: However, I'm already looking forward to upgrading... Not the body but lenses! :rolleyes: 

    The AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm F2.8, AF-S NIKKOR 14-24mm F2.8 and AF-S VR Zoom Nikkor ED 70-200mm F2.8 keep calling out to me! :373:

    I am using it and am very satisfied with the camera, also, 16-85mm is a perfect kit lens for the camera.
