Another which camera should I go for question
May 26, 2011

Hi all,

another one in the list of which camera should I go for questions.

My D40x has just given up the ghost and as a result I need to replace. I think I have narrowed down to the D90 and the D5100. I am by no means an expert and had only just started to play around with different settings. As I see it the various things to consider are:

D90
Slightly older Technology
Heavier (could be a plus or a minus)
Lower MP
More versatile in the long run
Built in motor

D5100
Newer technology
Slightly better bracketing
Higher MP
More compact

Are there any other considerations that are major differences?

Also I have a couple of AF-S lenses from my D40x - I know the built in motor is required for the D5100 - but I take it I can also use a lens with a motor in with the D90 (even though the camera has a motor in the body).

TIA

John
