Strange thing is, it appears to be a replacement/upgrade to the D90 and not
the D300 which at least some of us were expecting. Wonder what real
improvements, if any, there are?

I don't believe the reduction in viewfinder magnification from 0.94
to 0.78 can be considered an upgrade.

it's an upgrade for the d60, not the d90.

Thanks for putting me right. As the price is pitched around the same price
as a D90 (got my D90 body for £562, new) I assumed it was a replacement for
this model. So having only just bought it, I'm relieved; hate buying stuff
that gets replaced only weeks away.

It appears to be a downgrade to the D90 in many respects. While it has an
articulating LCD (nice) the resolution and size is found lacking.
