I've been using my D50 since Jan '06 and I'm ready to upgrade. Up until a few days ago I thought I would get myself the D300, but after seeing the spec's on the D90 I think I might lean towards that.

I passed when the D80 was released, but now I'm ready.

Anyone else thinking or have already upgraded.

What were or will be your reasons behind it?

I'm looking for faster frames per second and more focus points. I'm also looking forward to an extra command dial and the back lit top LCD. And I'm really looking forward to getting a real full functional battery grip and wired remote shutter release.

High ISO performance on the D50 and D40 is pretty good, but the initial looks I've seen from the D90 are excellent (on par with the D300). Based on my own personal shooting I don't think I need all the extra features of the D300 along with the higher price tag.

Before I got the D50 I thought the D70s was going to be my camera, but looking at things realistically and financially I found that the D50 was enough for me to get into the Nikon dSLR world. Now that I've grown with my D50 and realize what I now need, I believe that the D90 is going to be a better fit for my needs.

The D50 has served me well for almost 16,000 images and I've have learned so much about photography and my shooting habits using the camera. I plan on keeping it as a backup as I know it will always perform well. Its been a great ride.
