Re: Buy a 2nd camera. Any ideas on models?

Why not another D5000 if you want to go cheap? B&H has Nikon refurbished body only for $329.95 with free shipping, $400 cheaper than when it first came out.

While I agree D90 is nicer, refurb. one costs around $650. They both have the same sensor; therefore, IQ is essentially same. And AF motor is non-issue if you are already using AF-S lenses with D5000.

D3000 isn't much cheaper and D3100 while it might have slightly better sensor, costs more and UI is not as good.

Refubr. D5100 is around $500, another possible option for cost effective 2nd body.
