Perhaps this is not the best place to ask but im sure that many of you have been "around" and are experienced trekkers/travelers
Im planing my first big trip to the far east (china,nepal,india,thailand,laos,myanmar)
Now what would you buy for such a trip?
Considering 2 options
1.D60 + P&S (for backup)
2.D90 + GPS module
For someone who's coming from Canon 40D, the D90 is "same level" that im used to.
also big VF, Top LCD, class leading high DR&ISO, HD Video, GPS, camera is Faster, 11 AF points+grid, reliability, and i really want one!
200G heavier, more $$$, needs to be handled always with 2 hands (one hand is very uncomfortable)
It will require more attention&worry from me- because of having more features and because its more expensive.
It actually fits my hands slightly better and i can hold it in one hand and almost "forget that its there", size, wont feel bad if its abused,
Would use it more like "P&S" perhaps less distracting from the environment?
after all im going to travel alot!
3 useless AF points, no top LCD, less IQ, less Features, less control...etc...
*lens is 18-105mm VR + 10-20mm either way
*Another important factor is that the selected gear would be ON me 24/7 for at least 6 months.
Your opinions please.
