I am now the proud owner of a Nikon D90, and I am totally and utterly in love. I had no idea what I was missing. The shutter speed alone is enough to make it worth it, but there is so much more I can do with a DSLR than my (wonderful) point-and-shoot. I played last night after Caleb went to bed and my battery was fully charged, but I was just messing around a bit trying to learn my way around.
We chose a Nikon because I already had a wonderful Nikon Cool Pix S80, which I adore. It takes great pictures, but is not a SLR. By continuing with Nikon, we already have a leg up on at least some of the buttons and controls! There are a LOT more buttons on this one, obviously, but we're not starting from scratch.
Happy everything to Matt and me for the next two years...yeah, it was that kind of purchase!
So now, if Abby does come early, she will be wonderfully photographed!
Don't get any ideas, Abby. We want you to stay in as long as possible.
