I'm personally very happy with my d90.

It does have a strange problem though but its actually a nice one to have! It consistently seems to overexpose by 0.7 which I have no problem compensating for during daytime with exposure compensation but at night time and indoors when in low light.. which make for a slow shutter speed, its perfect.

For new-comers to the DSLR since the digital era, I think they dont care about the old motor-less lenses.

Yes and no, if they are new comers looking for a entry level dslr, and entry level lenses. the cheap but good 50 1.8 is 120 dollars. Very good FL for crop bodies for portraits. The 35 1.8 is not as well suite for that portrait. So the only other options is 450 dollar af-s 50 or the sigma 50mm at 500 dollars. Kinda steep for a new comer right out the box.

Perhaps I was talking about myself only.

I entered DSLR world with D50

Had bought only 1 motor-less lens, yes, the 50/1.8 you mentioned.

Then I upgraded to D5000 then D7000

But I am happy with all the SWM lenses e.g. 18-135, 18-105 & 70-200

Not quite enpensive (except for 70-200 I took from my brother, who gave up DSLR shooting, tired of its weight).

How do you like the D7000? I have the D5000 and D300 and thinking of selling the D300 to get the D7000.

D7000 has the best Video capability of any Nikon DSLRs so far

vs

D300(not D300s) has no video


Since I was used to light weight, I have already felt D7000 is quite heavy

I read the specs on D300 weight, I think they are comparable,

Sorry, overlooked that you've got D5000 already.

Yes, you may consider that

D7000 = D5000 ┼ D300

IMHO
