    Default Debating btw D90 vs D7000. Pls help.

    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.

    Hi, the D90 now in DSLR terms is old whereas the D7000 is new.
    To be honest I doubt if in real terms you will see any difference in the picture quality between the D90 12mp D700016mp.
    Perhaps if you print A3 or crop very tight. I have printed A4 from 6mp very nicely also vey nice A4 portaits from 2mp so I think the pixel race is something of a sales gimmick.
    Not long ago the pundits were saying 10mp was the perfect amount for quality.Too many pixels and C.A / Moire becomes a nuisance apparently.
    I guess you have to decide whether the bells and whistles on the D7000 is worth the extra.
    I have the D5000 and wouldn't dream of upgrading to the D7000.Even though the D7000 video is better. Having said the I'm not at all interested in video capabilities as my wife always carries a proper Video camcorder that does a much better job than any DSLR..
    Have a look at Imaging Resource they have a sample image comparison section where you can compare things like ISO between two diff cameras.
    Good Luck

    H.i I was looking at the 7000 the new 5100[ not out till april 21st] and the 90. After a lot of deliberating i went for the d90 i know it is an older camera but from what I've seen and read i don't think the image quality will suffer. And the money saved will go towards a new lens. Will use my d5000 as a backup and sell my d60...graham

    Best thing to do is go in a shop and see which feels best & you will probably go for D90, or is that just me.
