I like to get 10-22 for landscape :D

your purpose should dictate your action... if you're getting into landscape photography or the UWA lens is a MUST for what you're getting into... get the lens but, if that is not the case, if you think the lesser noise of D90 compared to D80 and other new functions that my serve you well in your photography, get the body. :D
It's hard to beat a good photographer with the right camera.

 . . . if it is me

examine my cravings . . .
                if am lusting for technology - get the d90 (and maybe the d90x next year and 90xs
                      next next year) gives me great pictures too.
                if i want better pictures (the d80 is very much capable) - attend seminars, read               
                      books, read threads here, practice -  it makes me intrinsically a better
                      photographer sans the technological crutch.
                if i want the best bang for the buck, i'll get the lens.  it doesn't depreciate that 
                      much, hence, greater resale value. gives me great pictures too.
. . . but am speaking thru a thin wallet . . . :-[

if you have enough to spare . . . get the body and lens . . . and enjoy life - that's the bottomline.  ;)

and ohh ... scout around for accessories also to augment your shooting need - they let you take better pictures too.

I'll still go for the D90.  The hi-ISO performance of D90 will compensate the slow glass.  I've been using my D90 using my 18-105 VR kit lens.  VR + Hi ISO solve ka na agad.  No need for a pro lens for the mean time.  The kit lens will suffice.  Plus we're not even talking about the video yet, hehehe. IMHO.

ganito kasi yan... if nabasa mo ung thread na "hinay hinay lang", konti lang naman talaga ang difference. difference ng d80 sa d90 eh. imho, dont know if my live view ang d90 pero im sure meron, imho mas masarap sumilip sa viewfinder kesa mag live view. maganda ang may live view pero di naman halos lahat ng kuha mo dun titingnan. good lens is better than having a new body.

kung pwede ko lang bilihan ng lens yung cam na gami ko eh, pero bridge lang kasi gamit ko. may pambili naman ako ng DSLR kasi un nga, gaano ko ba kakailangan un. i know it will help to take better picture pero sabi nga ng iba, "its not the camera, its the photographer". nabubuhay ako sa pilosopiyang ito ngayon. ok naman yung gamit ko ngayon eh, practice mode muna bago ako maging deep-into-it talaga. medyo magastos ang hobby na ito. although pwede pagkakitaan, di ko nakikita 'to para sa sarili ko. pure art lang talaga. suwerte ko lang na niregaluhan ako ng sister ko ng camera.

dude, get the lens. di mo pa kailangan ng bagong body kasi ok naman ang D80.

thats a very low shutter count (3k). practice practice muna with d80 before jumping to the next body. itch for a new glass. there's d90 and d300 to choose from later. antay lang bumaba price ng body  ;)
