I'm trying to recommend a camera to a friend and I'm curious what you
all think of the D90 vs. the 500D.

The thing that hits me first is that the 500D can do 30fps VGA and
720P video with auto focus.

The frame rate isn't everything. The video codec is h.264, but the audio is linear PCM. Meaning the files might be bigger than you think they should be. Why? Cause its ...ugh...Quicktime. Users of Sansa's E200 series of Mp3 players know all too well what this means for the the video file size.
