For compatibility with legacy lenses that don't have an AF/MF switch on them, Nikon includes an AF/MF switch on the D90's body--as it does on all its dSLRs.

Furthermore, there's a warning in the manual that indicates you can actually damage the lens if you try to manually focus with the body switch set to AF. Read full review

As with the D80, the white balance, ISO sensitivity, and quality buttons line the left side of the LCD. I wish they were more easily identifiable by touch, however. Read full review

The D90 includes a dedicated Live View button, in part because the OK button is used to start/stop movie capture in Live View mode, so it can't do double duty here as it does on most cameras. Read full review
