Nikon D90 with FX Sensor

I was reading the survey over at Nikonrumors.com today, and one of the options for the camera I’m waiting for was “full frame Nikon DSLR in a small body”. Now they may not be thinking D90 size when they posted that, but I sure am.  I’d be all over a [...] Read more »

Canon 24-70mm f2.8L IS
