D7000 for $200 more than D90. Should I get it?

Hey all,

New to the DSLR world and can't wait to get out there and start shooting!!

Here is the situation. I ordered a D90 body only. I was going to pick up the 18-105mm lens separatley for 379. I will also be getting the 50mm F1.8D. The rpice for the body and 18-105 lens is $1058.

However, I could get my hands on a new D7000 with the 18-105mm and a bag and a 8bg card (albeit a class 4) for only $200 more. SHould I do it? Is the upgrade worth it?

I know there has been some hot pixel issues with the new D7000 and there is a huge fanbase of the D90.

I thought the D90 was all I would want, but for only $200, it is tempting to get the upgrade!

I was going to get the canon t2i but felt like a toy compared to these beasts lol

SO, if you guys and gals were me, what would you do?

I would like to get better glass down the road, but for now, those were the lenses I am getting.

thanks so much and hope to have many many more talks with all of you as I learn more!!
