    & generally have 'antivibration-antishake' vibration reduction systems also that help reduce image shake. G lense are newer than D....but the G will have several 'cpu contacts' on it's bottom ring & usually 1 or 2 electronic switches on the body. If you 90 came with the 18-105 zoom, that's a G lense. The d90 can run D and G lenses essentially identically, whereas the models below the d90 can only run D lense manually.
    Great, thanks so much. :thanks

    thanks! glad to be here

    it will be called Nikon D7000, but the release date is a well kept secret, all I can say is: soon

    but do not worry, the D90 is an excellent camera and the new version will probably cost an arm and a leg

    Sure it isn't more of a successor to the D5000?

    nope, i'm pretty sure

    Nikon is doing an overhaul in the name department, D3000 was the first of 'four digit' cameras

    (dedicated Canon user speaking...)

    2. Darkroom. In pre-lab times this option was for everyone, in post-lab times it was mostly a choice for professionals. In darkroom (your own lab) photographer developed his films himself, making any corrections he wanted, and then he printed cards himself. All control over the process was in his hands, everything depended on his skills.

    Now you can rely on lab as well. And with modern technology 70% of shots are ready to print or publish with minimum corrections and editing. But that rest 30% of your shots are usually those, where you think you found something new, interesting and genius And you don't want anybody touch that file. So you need Photo Shop - the dark room of ourdays. Your own photolab, where you can do whatever you want with your photos, and again, the result depends only on your skills.

    I hope it makes some sense...
    That's a very good point you have made over here and I do think that this is something that almost everyone looks for. There are some good shots that you think should only have your name on it and that includes the developing part too, the digital cameras have provided this opportunity. But, inspite of that there are some of your favorite shots that would require some final touchings before it is printed.

    I am definitely a newbie in this department, but I've always wondered: wouldn't touch-ups and photo editing be sort of considered "cheating"?
