Re: The 500 will most defintely not beat the D90 @ high ISO

The D90 is somewhat better than the 50D, maybe half a stop.

How sure are you about that? The D90 has better NR, yes.

Including DR. It has better AF,

It certainly has not. The 50D's AF is a better, in speed, tracking and low light ability.
So does the 500D/450D.

Flash assist, flash commander, faster
FPS,

Faster FPS? Since when? Or are you talking about the 500D?

faster start up, less shutter lag, 2 control wheels, top
illuminated panel, better auto ISO, better bracketing, better build,
better viewfinder, penta prism instead of mirror.

Ok, so you are talking about the 500D. Better auto ISO? Are you sure about that? I am not...
Less shutter lag? What do you think that is, and what do you base that on?

Better bracketing? Are you sure? Try doing a -2 0 +2 bracketing? With mirror lock up (since I assume you are thinking of HDR)?

The 500D has better resolution and video. And is aimed at entry
level, which the D90 isnt. The 500D is a fine entry level cam, but it
is not as much camera in my opinion as the D90.

Entry level? It has the SAME specs as a D90. They are the same "level". Entry level is Nikon D60. In my opinion it is as much of a camera as the D90. Both very fine cameras.
