I currently use a D50 that I plan on keeping for general closer pics with th 50mm 1.8 lense. My plan is to purchase a 2nd new body to use with my 80-400vr for birding. The second body will greatly reduce lense changing in the field. My choices are a D90 $729.99 or the D7000 $1,179.00, is there a noticeable difference between the two for my uses for $300. Thanks for any input or advice, much appreciated.
The D7000 is better in low light situations. It has 39 AF points, compared to 11. The 7000 also does 6 fps continuous shooting on high, and 4 or 5 on low. It has 16.2 mega pixels compared to 12.3 of the D90. The 7000 holds 2 SDHC cards. If you care about video, the 7000 does 1080p, compared to the D90's 720p.
The big thing is the low light capabilities............
i love my d7000 for the low light capabilities, the upper end iso settings are a god send, and with two card slots shooting in raw is not such a problem anymore.another plus is not wondering when in the future you will need to upgrade, should not be an issue any more.
i think this is good,strange & appreciating.....there is no doubt in this that we are now in that kind of world where wer come across different and strange things happening in this world. Innovation is everywhere, personally I am also a fan of innovation, no matter in studies, technologies, science, beauty, fashion (but it should be good for human kind an "world).
