$999 huh? not bad, especially compared to $1400 for the 50D(their site has it at $1400)

but like others said, if i did get the D90, i wouldnt use it for HD video. it would be nice to use in a pinch, but wouldnt be a selling feature for me personally.
ive got enough HD cams to do the job at 1080i/p
I don't think they are selling it to you.

They are selling it to people like me. I would love one camera to mainly take good stills plus occasional video. The damn thing is perfect for my needs.

Dammit.

the 30D (and 20D, and 10D) are mag bodies too...
Nice, but I am amazed how much abuse the plastic bodies can take. My D70s was so cheap because the first owner smashed it into a brick fireplace. Small, almost imperceptible hairline crack on the bottom corner. Still works perfectly.

But plastic or mag, if you knock the damn thing hard enough the guts are toast anyway.

Narlus, I am gunning for a D90 before Roadburn 2009. The bands that are confirming will be worth getting on video.

:D
