Re: Nikon 18-105mm kit worth it? Or is it better to go body only?

As with everyone else - used both, can't really tell the difference. The metal mount might be an issue depending on how/when/where you take the camera? Never had an issue with the 18-105 but I don't put it to much stressful use.

There is however a difference between the D5100 & the D90 - the D5100 having a hands down better sensor. While I can't tell the difference between the two lenses I can tell the difference between the two cameras - every time. Look through my PC & I can almost always tell which one is which.....................AND..........given the D5100's price? No brainer.

Unless there is one specific feature you absolutely need on the D90, can't live without it.
