#19. "RE: What causes this?"
In response to In response to 18


Irvine, US
          

I got into shooting by girlfriends daughters soccer games and I think I want to branch out to some of the softball leagues and basketball games I see at the park. Not for money, just for fun and practice and maybe someday it would lead to something but I am not at that point yet. If I sell the d90 for 500 I only have to come up with about 6 or 7 more. I think the d7000 is at b&h for a little under 1200. You are right, I probably don't need it. It just came across my head last night when I was browsing the web and I saw an article saying the 7000 is a lot better for sports than the d90. Got me thinking maybe I can sell mine and come up with a few more bucks for the 7000 and maybe that will hold me over to the new camera comes out and our finances are back on track. And yes, this is probably 85% NAS getting at me. Are there meetings for this problem? And if I have to justify it more, maybe I can take some video of the soccer games. LOL Yea right, I haven't even touched the video on the d90. I just want to open a new box and smell a new camera and read a new manual! Is that so wrong? ;>)
