JohnG-

You are of course correct. However, even www.amazon has the D-90 at around $850.00.

Here is a night shot and a day shot of the school. You have given me such good advice so far, that you have got me thinking alot more on the subject than I had orginally. I thought it might be best to get a good body now and a so-so lens at this time and get a better one when finances are available. I do the following type of photos..

1. martial arts (my school)

2. mma tourny's at other schools

3. high school wrestling

4. nature shots

Thanks for the advice so far, it has been great!

If the budget is a factor, look for a Nikon D-50 body. The D-50 works well up to ISO 1600 without showing much noise or artefacts. My guess is that you could find a D-50 body for around $(US) 250.00, then add whatever lens you might desire. Check out http://www.keh.com.

Keep in mind that you could also really improve your photo by using an external flash.

I checked keh.com and it is around $(US)350.0 for the D-50 body and a Nikkor 18-70mm lens. Also here is a sample photo taken without flash inside usinga Nikon D-50 at ISO 1600.
