I've heard a lot of good about the D90.  Now that I've got all the lenses I'm probably Canon for life...  Makes deciding on the next cam easier, I guess.  laugh.gif

Have you tried the 100-400mm 2.8 L lens for canon? That thing is SWEET for birding!

I am holding off my spending spree (and browsing spree) until I can get out and take pictures more often.  Don't tempt me!  laugh.gif

Canon EOS 350D here.  Due for an upgrade soon, they're getting so much cheaper now!

Go for the Canon EOS 450D. You don't really need the little gimicks on it - live view for instance (ew.) 12MP - more than enough for anything up - and even over - 30x20inch photograph prints. 9 point AF, Digic III processor - rather than the Digic II on your 350D, it's faster, the EOS 400D has the same processor. (Which I have.)
A better build than the 350D, lighter and smaller too. And a decent FPS on it - for an ametuer DSLR. Also has the the nice function of sensor cleaning tongue.gif .

But, if you are gonna upgrade your DSLR, I'd do it sooner rather than later. In the U.K, due to the fall of the pound against the Yen and such, camera prices - inc accessories - are going up. I dunno about other countries though.

I use a Nikon D90.


D90 is a very nice camera. Where I work, they're perhaps the most sold DSLR - with the D40 in close second. Not a fan of Nikon, but they have the best software in their DSLR compared to same year releases by other camera manufacturers.

Yeah, the D90 is very nice...but now I have my eye on the D3. What a sweet camera!

See mine has to break first or I'd feel bad about getting a new one... Maybe I'll take it kayaking this summer.  whistling2.gif

I doubt I would use the live view either, neat toy though.  I will most definately keep an eye out on the price, thanks for the tip.  If they went up much I'd consider it justification for splurging.

I use the D40, mainly for imaging the moon through a telescope, I've started using it for more down-to-earth shots lately - I've been very pleased with it.

I've been digging through my old photos and finding things with a fresh eye.

While I'm thinking of it, a friendly reminder to back up old photos.  You can get a 500 gig backup drive (external) now for insanely cheap.  Mine roots into my photo directory and backs up everything, while I sleep, and it was under $40 (probably cheaper now).  Set up in just a couple of clicks.  It's on a separate power backup to protect from surges.  There are also several online options.  Too many times I've had to comfort people reduced to tears because they didn't keep a reliable backup of photos.  

Anyway, here's some more pics:
