D90 a worthy upgade.

I have the D40 and have been hanging out for the D90 announcement for my upgrade path. The D80 was never really enough upgrade for me.

The D80 IQ really no better than the D40. The D90 should be a decent improvement here (assuming it is the same CMOS chip as the D300).

D40 2.5fps, D90 4.5fps ( the D80 3fps not really an upgrade from the D40)

Bigger better LCD

Assuming it still has the AF motor it will AF my 50mm (may even get some more primes starting with the 35mm f2).

Better 11 pt AF system. (same as D80)

The first 3 points that are upgraded from the D80 make the D90 a very good upgrade for me and I'm sure all those D50 owners out there hanging off on the D80.

The supposed movie mode (If its any good) will just be the iceing on the cake.

Hopefully its AT LEAST 800x480 (WS) @30fps. Anything else is a bit undercooked these days.
