When I first laid my eyes upon a Nikon D90 fitted with a 50mm f/1.8 AF-D Prime, I went catatonic, speechless at the curvaceous beauty. My goal ever since was "I got to own a setup like that no matter what". After months of tedious saving, menial errands for money and what not, I was close that I can almost touch it, but still at least 10K short of the current market price. So I called upon one of my awesome sisters, exploited the currency trend of the international market (when the AUD was at an all time low against the BDT) and brought home my bride of heat-treated plastic and magnesium alloy. The 50mm was a later addition, once again funded by my alter ego of "Scrooge McDuck".

For the first time (or perhaps the 32nd) in my life, I'm complacent.

But for how long?


# Taken with an equally deserving Nikon product, the Nikon D40, my previous hombre in crime, and its legendary AF-S 18-55mm f/3.4-5.6 EDII Kit Lens, which I'm also lucky enough to own. The camera-body will soon be up for sale though. Also note that, this is the natural "Violet Tint" seen during the twilight hours, no color correction involved.

PS: I know many would argue that I'm going a bit too ga-ga over gears...the truth is, I'm not. I've reached my limit for the time being and I'm all out of funds this time.

Hey, a 50 that autofocuses, finally.

I'm sold over to manual glass (I think that 35mm you had was a splendid piece, though I did love my 50 f/1.8 AIS better) and thus I might actually find myself getting a D5000 instead of a D90. I like my pre-AI glass a lot.

Of course, if the D90 *can* mount my Nikkor 28 f/3.5, a D90/D300 becomes something I'd have to start begging/scavenging/living on the dark side for, again.

Congrats - you now have a body truly worthy of envy.

According to many reviews D90 is a mind blowing machine... a beauty in the guise of a beast.. one of the finest pieces of photographic equipment... I can feel your thrill Atunu... I was similarly thrilled with my first 5D 3 years ago..

I love how you guys do this Canon/Nikon thingy... reminds me of Mohammedan/ Abahoni rivalry..... :)

nice setup. the D90 is a superb workhorse and a beauty as well.

Enjoy it Naser... I had the same thrill when I got my Leica M6 with 50mm Summilux lens from a guy on Ebay. He lived in Switzerland but was visiting UK for a holiday.... so we met up in Oxford and did the deal. Never looked back.

Oh my lord I want a D90 SO BAD... but I just gotta keep saving.

Though I think I'm going to splurge for the delicious 50mm lens for reals!

Also, loving that violet light <3
