I just purchased the D90 a week or so ago (Costco $1300 w/ 18-55 and 55-200 VR glass). Ive never had an SLR before, always used point and shoot. Amazing difference, even for someone who knows nothing about photography. The speed and quality of photo cant compare. I was told over and over before I bought, that the camera is second behind the glass. Good camera and bad glass = bad pics. Average camera and good glass = good pics. I have the Canon Pro9000 photoprinter and it prints 13x19 photos crystal clear, just like the major "developers". I was worried (before I bought it) that the 9000 would turn out just like all my photo printers of past, too expensive to print with and sub-par photos, but I am very impressed. Best photo printer out there.
