Don't you think it's better to research this sort of stuff Before buying the camera?
Since you have these questions, I assume you aren't a professional photographer, which in turn means that your Nikon 90 will be perfectly fine for you.

You should be fine with that. There are plenty of lengthy well written reviews about it already. just google for them. Really it is the quality of the photographer that counts. No amount of expensive equipment will make up for experience and enthusiasm.

You make the most basic, incorrect assumption. Simply purchasing a good camera will in no way give you the ability to take good, or even excellent pictures.

You are the crucial element, not the camera. A good camera merely facilitates your skills.
You need to learn about photography, and not worry about what camera you have.

Buy books on photography, specifically the type of photography you are interested in. Find out what equipment and space you will need. Often, you will need to make quite a large outlay on the lights, reflectors, etc that is more than your camera costs.

A cheap camera in the hands of a real photographer will take better pictures than an amazing camera in the hands of an beginner.

read what Nik said... it's all said there. Period ;) same as in the other thread (useless rubbish).

Its the artist, not the tool that make quality. Same goes for the camera (as a tool ;) )

As Nik said it is a great camera especially for a beginner. It will take anything you need until (if) you are making a healthy salary from photography.

Yes you can!

I'm pretty sure Avatar was made buy a guy who had only been using max for a week......

And Annie Lebovitz only took/takes amazing photos because she had the money for the most expensive camera available....

The camera body does not matter nearly as much as the lens you stick in front of it.
Buy the Nikon 50mm prime f1.8 for around $150cdn, it's super sharp and lets you do some amazingly creative things for only $150.

For double that price you can drop to f1.4, but you probably won't need that.

I love my d90, it's a great body.
But I've spent my money on lenses I actually use, just bought the Nkkor 80-200mm f2.8, what a sharp lens that is! :)

Interesting because the Canon 50mm prime 1.8 is also highly recommended for starting out with ( got mine for about 80 GBP ).. Must be a good combo..

Also just been reading about advantages/disadvantages between cropped and fullframe, comparisons between for example the canon 1d mkIV ( aps-h ), the 5d mkII ( fullframe ) and 7d ( cropped i think ). Things like fullframe having less pixel density which provides better images, better iso performance, against cropped having a greater sweet-spot and less prone to distortions etc.. Interesting stuff..

I think just beyond the entry level dslr there is a LOT to think about in terms of camera body..
