Why I got the D90
Nov 18, 2008

Nothing scientific, not a one-to-one comparison, but here's the sort of practical, real-world results I was hoping to get from the D90 over the performance my D80 gets me under similar, low-light conditions. If you must quibble, go ahead, but note first the D80 shot is at ISO400, and the D90 shot at ISO1600. Then look at the black shadow areas and the red curtain - even at the resized size you should be able to see the difference(s).

Post-processing: Resized to 1280x~800 only.

D80, VR16-85, flash-bounce, f/5.6, 1/100sec, ISO400

D90, VR16-85, no flash, f/4.2, 1/100sec, ISO1600 (Auto-ISO)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Test everything; hold on to the good.
