I just read that the Nikon D90 body has been listed as discontinued on the Nikon Japanese website. I went to the site and let Google translate it, but I don't see the discontinuation notice--but I'm probably just not seeing the correct page. I'm guessing that the body is being phased out in favor of the Nikon D7000, a 16.2mp camera that is about two years newer than the D90. Still, the D90 is a great camera and if it's discontinued it might be a good time to look for bargain prices. By the way, I saw the news on the Photography Bay blog--a very fun and interesting blog.
