Neutral Day makes some strong comments on the ISO performance.
Dpreview forum users discuss the DCR review.
It looks like the D90 had perhaps an even bigger surprise under the hood: good low noise performance! Just search for the word "noise' on the review page to see all the noise-related comments made. But the ISO picture comparisons speak louder than the text!
So how is this camera going to affect the market? It is certainly a game-changer for the Nikon mount, where it sits between the D60/D80 and the D200/D300. Considering movie mode, focus motor, noise performance, and such, it becomes the best bang for the feature-set buck DSLR in the Nikon line-up.
How about the other Photokina cameras? Well, it's too early to tell, we have to wait for reviews of the 50D, G1, and whatever else is coming that may be close-enough to the D90.
