It's something that can very easily be overdone, especially if the vignette is very pronounced. There are other ways to draw the eye to subject, e.g. shallow DOF (blurred BG), ROT, etc.

it could be, but in this case no. sometimes when i shoot my 24-70 with stacked filters (cpl, nd grad) i can get some pretty pronounced vignetting. but in this case its post effect.

The D90 is a cool camera but if the specs on the D7k are legit, you want to wait for the next evolution. Higher ISO capabilities, higher MP, better resolution and probably 1080 video.
A long feature list is not what I'm looking for. A sharp image and high durability and life is what I want.

My D60 is already dying and its been 1 and a half years. HotShoe Flash is inconsistent and lots of dust is IN the LCD. Thank god for extended warranties
That's no good!

If anything it will last longer outside than I will before freezing up.
Just be careful going back inside as it'll fog up and you'll have to wait for the temperature to normalize.
I'm looking for a camera that will at bare minimum, last me for 5 years, preferably 10. I'm going with Nikon because apparently the F mount is forever.

The D90 has been out for a while now, enough to at least extrapolate a reasonable rate of failure. It could be the best camera in the world for $300, but if I have to buy a new one every year or two, I don't want it.

Thinking of going to Cleveland's air show this weekend. Weather is supposed to be cool and sunny tomorrow afternoon, glorious on Sunday, and warm and sunny on Monday. I've been getting pretty hyped up because the Blue Angels keep on flying over my dorm while practicing their formations.

That seems the best choice for you. Maybe they designed the D60 to not be used as much. I've gone through 24k shots and all my friends say the shutter sounds a bit funny. There's this high pitched sound after the shutter has closed D:

Thanks for the input guys. Though I wish someone would try to talk me out of it.
