    d90 for sure, the lcd screen on the d90 will blow doors off the screen of the d80, not to mention it has the same sensor as the d300

    I heard the D90 is rather slow when it comes to focusing... Haven't got to play with one more than a whole 2mins and was just told this recently..

    they aren't even in the same ballpark cost wise

    but hte 90 will be much better than 40/60 (and I owned a 40).

    the 90 may be too much camera for her tho:o

    d40 is cheaper. That way if its just a phase you won't lose out too much, and if its not you can get her a better lens.

    obviously, out of those go with the d90. but for a beginner, i would probably recommend a used d80 and some better glass.






    and photos of your sister? :o
