Post here if you like certain things on your new D90.
I`ll be the first.I like the fact that I can buy a lense(expensive or not) attach to the camera and start stealth shooting :)

I like the small size compared to my fx7 and 35mm adapter to achieve DOF footage ... I'm thinking of selling my fx7 to buy some lens... :) love stealth shooting.

This is what I like -
It's like I've gone back in time 4 years when SD was still king, the DVX was fairly new, and the M2 and other adapters were just getting a foothold.
AND, all of a sudden, all that CRAP got magically turned into a tiny DSLR that is practically invisible to onlookers, shoots with any Nikon lens, in any light, and delivers awesome SD every time.

I really think of this camera as a great 'sketching' camera, where you can practice 35mm filmmaking and have super quick SD feedback.
For sync sound you have to get into some sort of other rig, though.
The images from this camera will look amazing in SD with great sound.

High quality stills.
Ability to take video with 35mm DOF everywhere I go.

I love it because even though it's not good for movies it opens the doors of evolution regarding this particular path.

Let me Change that.....
I like mine cause I can make a REAL movie with DOF.
Even if taking 15 more takes than usual it's awesome for 1299.00.
Also it has is extra feature that's an add on. It Shoots Amazing Stills.
If Nikon doesn't expand on this they will be one of the stupidest companies

Well, there's nothing else quite like it. In many ways its like a poor man's Red- I know the quality isn't even close, but the thing costs what a Red One rents for in a day! It has a very low total cost of ownership, especially if you're already invested into Nikon's camera system.
Coming mostly from a still photo background, I am getting the color I always wanted. I get a camera that handles largely how I'd want in a form factor that can fit in a hip-pack and says "pay no attention to the tourist". I have excellent dynamic range and amazing low light performance. Best of all I don't have to buy a DOF adapter to get wonderful low DOF results- nor do I have to deal with all of that associated light loss and gadgetry!
I love the D90 about 80% and hate it about 20% for what it can't do that I think it should.
