Hi im looking to buy my first dslr the d90 is top of my wish list , i have been waiting to see if the price would drop with the launch of the d7000 but as of yet it hasnt, i was looking on the jessops web site and the price of the d5000 with 18/55 vr and 55/200 vr lenses is priced at 579 the d90 with 18/105 vr lense is priced at 799. the question is should i snap up the D5000 bundle or hold out save a bit more money and get the D90.

I think that you should definitely wait a little longer and save some more for a D90. I own a D90 and I've played with the Canon recently in Jessops and considering the reviews I've read; its not a very good camera. In regards to the ISO quality, dedicated controls and overall build quality, the D90 stands much better. Take your time and get a camera which will last; its worthwhile.

Hi remember when you buy a DSLR you are buying into system check what lenses are compatible with the camera you want. The D90 is a very good camera and what you should do is go to a shop and hold it then compare it with a canon or other makes, see what is right for you

I don't know where first responder got Canon from?? The D5000 is also Nikon!

You made a great choice, I recently sold my D200 and bought a 6mth old D90 that is still under warranty. Only cost me 40 in the difference [though I did sell a 50mm and camera bag with the D200 to make up a little bundle worth selling]

Very happy with the D90, so much better at handling high ISO noise than the D200 could ever dream of! I've taken portraits of the kids indoors with no flash @ ISO 1000 and noise was barely evident, sweet :)

Check out page 105 in the May issue of WDC magazine. There it points out that the D90 can be bought for around 529 body only, which is a huge saving off the RRP of 850. Or you can get it with the 18-105mm lens for around 695. Good luck.
