Glad I could be of some help
How does graduating in Associate in Science Degree, Electronics Engineering Technology make you interested in photography
I'm into photography though too, as you can tell, but I'm still to pick out a camera. I'm really pushing the D60 as my choice though at the minute, or the 450D, but I wish I could afford the D90...
The D5000 though when that comes out could be a good pick for me!
Good luck. I hope I've at least narrowed things down.
