    not a bad dSLR for badminton/sports.
    you need fast and fast AF lens.
    D5k still acceptable at iso1600.

    I tried both the D5K and the D90 back when I bought the D90 (Mid 2009). While both had similar image quality, I opted for the D90. I really like handling the D90 while the D5K was on the light side.
