I'm thinking about getting a D90 but I want to know if there's a significant difference. The T1i is $699.99 with a 18-55mm kit lens. The D90 is $1199.99 with a 18-105 kit lens. Leave biased shit behind please.

Which should I get?

the d90 produces slightly better pictures
the t1i records a lot better videos.

the 18-105mm lens is better than the 18-55.

Its a huge step up but will be harder to use then the T1. The 18-55 and 18-105 lenses are both crap so that shouldn't factor in your decision.

Listen to what Keileo said. My friends invest in quality lenses when he had a XS and he just keeps upgrading bodies while he has nice lenses all round.

Koven what do you mean that it's harder to use? I've honestly wondered this though, are there more settings or something as you get the more professional DSLRs?

I don't really mean harder to use, I mean harder to master and be comfortable with. I shot with a D60 for a while and when your comfortable and confident with the camera, it makes you a better photographer. If your always fumbling with settings and shit with a huge dslr you'll get frustrated with it especially when you miss that perfect moment.

The more advanced the camera, does not necessarily mean more settings but they add new things to make shooting easier as well as giving you a faster camera and better picture quality. As for functions, they definitely go a lot more in depth so you get exactly the picture you want. For example, D90 has about 10 or 11 different flash modes, there are a lot of little features and settings like that you don't wanna fuck with if your new to photography. I remember the first day I got the camera I accidentally changed the exposure bias and fucked up a day of shooting..thank god I have Photoshop to save me lol.

Ah I got you, that makes sense. Reason why I asked was because I wondered what to expect when moving up with DSLRs and I always forgot to ask. lol

keep shooting with the t1i until you're making enough money off photography to buy a better camera
