Also own some Canon gear still. The 2DN/20D with the odd 24-70mm f/2.8L and some other lenses and flash in the Billingham bag but you guys probably won't find interest in those. :p

Glad you came to your senses...lol...the D5100 is a nice camera from what I read. Should serve you well. Be warned, photography is fun but with a nice camera like that, it can become down right addictive. Not that it's a bad thing, except for your bank account...haha

Yeah, and according to multiple websites, the canon T3i has worse quality.

Also, why is it that the D90 has less features than the D5100 and yet costs $300 more?

With kit lens, its only going to be about $590

Already looking at macro and telephoto lens

Well, both are great cameras. I think one big reason the D90 is more is because it has the lens focus motor in the body which allows it to focus with non-AFS lenses. It also has wireless commander mode, and more direct controls (less menu diving). It also has a better LCD screen. The D5100 however has better video and a better sensor. Even so, the quality of the photos will likely be indiscernible. I have read that the D90 AF is much better than the D5100 as well which could account for some price difference.

IMO...the lack of external controls is a deal killer for me. Having to go to the menu instead of have fast access is a real PITA. That's just me though.

i have a d90. i love the wireless commander mode for using an OB flash as a slave! especially for doing tank related things, because i can get that flash above the tank

D90 also has the magnesium alloy body as well as better interconnects, seals, and mounts. The autofocusing motor allows legacy lenses to be mounted on it as well and still AF.

Must be thinking about the D200 instead of D90.

Or the successor to the D90 --> D7000.
