Keep my D80 and get a new lens or Sell my D80 and buy a D90? Help!
« on: September 29, 2008, 10:06:45 AM »
Guys, I've been thinking... I wanted a new lens but I also want to get the D90, but I can only get either one of them.  Should I just stick with my D80 and get a Tokina 11-16 or just get myself a D90? :D

Thanks!

the best investment you can get for your money is a good glass.

the D80 is still a GREAT camera - adding a good lens to it definitely makes it better than just getting a D90 and holding on to kit/slow lenses.

are you into landscaping and architecture? do you like taking group shots, interiors of buildings and nature? definitely then, get a Tokina.  ;D ;D ;D

That was what I was thinking :D I think I can buy a D90 next year instead, as probably Nikon will release a new and better model with D90's release :D Anyway, my D80 is still immaculate (less than 3k shots) so I think I can use it more first before selling :D

I was thinking along the same line when the D90 was released but I think I'll hang on to my D80 and buy a good lens instead.

After all, I still have a lot to improve on in terms of skills.

I was itching to buy the d300 when it was released but I thought that a 70-200VR  will be better to get so I kept my d80 and save for the holy trinity. When I was about to have the budget for the 70-200 VR , rumors are circulating that a new 70-200VR will be released so I postponed on buying one. Now, here comes the d90 and the 5d2 and I was a little confused. If I will go to 5d2, I will start from a scratch because I need  good lenses and that will hamper my enjoyment of photography.If I will go for the d90, I will still dream of the 70-200VR. So, I decided to wait for the new 70-200VR to be released and maybe by that time, I will have enough budget to buy even some dream primes. Good lenses make the old cameras look so good( IQ). Well, that's me and I don't shoot everyday...so Keep your d80....  ;)

@Kojie
OT: Yep :D hehehe :D

Yeah, actually, quite the same here, I ain't that good, I'm a hobbyist lang naman but I'm trying hard to be good (Sadly, my GF who only has a Lumix TZ15 shoots better than me :D hahaha!)

I might buy the lens sa Wed :D I'm itching to get this lens ever since I've been in Hongkong, sadly, no stock anywhere, but the price was just amazing (24k pesos).  Additional 4k here locally is still worth it imo, warranty is still my #1 priority :D

Next year nalang ako mag-D90, I'm pretty sure that either the price will drop or there will be a new and better model w/ HD video too :D Either way, I realized the lens are for keeps, a lot of people changes their bodies easily but always keep their lenses. I'll do the same until I can call myself a pro and get something worth my wait (D3 perhaps? hehehe :D)

if your planning to go FX forget about the DX lenses get the lenses that are full-frame compatible para di sayang ang bili mo and future-proof pa for the upgrade mo if you decide to go full frame.

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

 . . . 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.
