I don't usually make resolutions, but this year I really want to start posting here more! I used to be fairly active on this board but life has somehow gotten more hectic since I graduated last spring and I didn't have as much time. I haven't had much time to focus on photography, either and I would really like that to change. Like most people here, I've always wanted to "go pro" and this year I'd like to actually work towards that goal instead of just thinking about it.
ANYWAY, on to my question!
I currently have a Nikon D50. It's about 5 years old and it works but I'm starting to feel limited. Nikon doesn't make it anymore, but I think it's comparable to a D40 in quality although the D40 is a bit better. I can't afford a top of the line camera, but I was thinking of upgrading to the D90. For anyone that has upgraded similarly, did it really make a difference in your photography? Or would it be better to put my money into something else? I currently have my kit lens, 50mm 1.8 and a speedlight.
TIA for any and all help!
