Please Nikon user. Please help on making this decision for me. I would like to pick up a mid range DSLR and read alot about the D7000 which as a lot of upgrade and features from D90. Is there any difference between the new processor Expeed 1 vs 2? Also, does the new 2016 pixels meter makes a big difference in color?

I like the new upgraded features like the AF points from 11 to 39. However, the price from D90 vs D7000 is $400 difference which I could use for a better lens.

Let me know. Thanks in advance for your help and input.
