Additional Nikon D90 review comments :
-Camera performance for the D90 was top notch in all areas but one. The D90 starts up as soon as you flip on the power switch, even though it does have a dust reduction system. The focusing speeds are above average if you are using the viewfinder, but the focus is very slow in live view mode.
-The Nikon D90 is an upgrade from the D80. Reviews show the D90 positively flies. It comes with a new sensor, improved picture quality and speed, and it also comes with a multitude of features and modes. The informative display and visual information features have been adopted from the D60, which makes this digital SLR very user friendly
-The auto white balance did not totally remove the orange cast of incandescent lighting, but if did come close to a neutral color reproduction with Fluorescent lighting. While both manual presets did overcorrect slightly, it was easy to remove and tune out color casts with the easy to use in-camera controls before using the camera. It was also easy to fix color casts with the editing software.

11-point auto focus system with face priority: You can get consistently accurate and fast auto focus, which is reinforced by the Nikon Scene Recognition System, that delivers incredible sharpness in a wide variety of conditions.
