    So, my B&H catalog (aren't they huuuuge?) came today. Ugh. :p

    I was looking at the used/refurbished section and they have both the D90 and D5000. From the specs they gave, I can't tell much difference. Help?

    Here's a link to the comparison of a good bit of the specs from Nikon : http://www.nikonusa.com/Assets/Common-Assets/PDF/DSLR_Compare.pdf

    They are both very capable bodies, I think you'd find that the D5000 is basically a replacement for the D60, whereas the D90 was a replacement for the D80. My biggest gripe with the D5000 would be its lack of AF motor as it really limits lens choices.

    So in other words, the D90 is a better camera. If I were looking. lol
