Upgrade or Jump Ship?
Sep 8, 2008

My Gear:

Canon 350D body

Lenses:
Canon 60mm F2.8 macro
Canon 10-22mm
Canon 85mm f1.8
Sigma 30mm f1.4
Sigma 18-200mm (non OS)

I know it is silly for me to jump ship to Nikon D90 now that I have these lenses. All (apart from the 18-200) serve me real good so far.

I am not tempted by the video function in D90 but more for its faster/accurate Autofocus system (than 450D), ISO priority (canon has none), better built (than 450D), dedicated low-light AF assist lamp (not flash assisted), bigger viewfinder (than 450D), smaller body size (than 50D), 18-200 VR (canon's version does not have USM!! duh!) and various other lenses. I am not particularly impressed with either the 450D or 50D, the latter being beyond my price bracket. I was about to upgrade to 450D but D90 prompted my 2nd thought.

Anyone having the same thoughts? Please discuss!
