I wrote a discussion post awhile ago about how I was debating between getting the D90 and the D5000. Well today I was at Best Buy playing with the displays and I found something very concerning. While in the Sports/speedy setting, there was a big delay between pushing the button and hearing the shutter and the camera taking the picture. At first I thought maybe someone had put the camera into Manual and put some crazy numbers in, so I made sure it was on the speed setting and tried again and had the same issue. The same problem happened on both models as well as the Cannon display they had.
I don't know if it was slow just because it was a display and was overused, but I'm really concerned that if there is a delay in taking shots that I'm going to have an issue down the road if I get one or the other. My boyfriend rides Motocross and I don't want to miss good shots because of a camera delay, especially if I'm paying as much as I am for the camera.
So if someone could tell me if this is an easy fix, display camera was just flimsy, or if it is an issue I'm going to run into. If it is, I might have to start shopping for a different kind of camera or wait and see if a new model comes around before next fall when I plan to start taking photography classes.
Anyway if someone could respond and help me I would appreciate it :)
