Nikon officially released D90 today and it’s everything we expected. One lucky photographer, who usually uses a D3, got an opportunity to use a few D90s for more than a week and he’s very pleased with it.
The D90 includes all of the D80’s features plus a higher 12.3 megapixel resolution using the D300’s CMOS sensor, a live view, movie recording, and several new auto focus modes. It also comes with a new 18-105mm VR lens, which is a nice step up from the 18-55mm kit lens that ships with most current models.
I’m definitely getting one. It’s exactly the step up from the D40x I was hoping for.
