comment What hobbyist landscape lens should I get to go with my Nikon D90?
Which kit lens? When I bought my D90, I had the option of two packages; one with an 18-55 and the other with an 18-105.

comment How to upload multiple CF/SD cards fast?
The using a single 32GB card sounds like putting all your eggs in one basket. Whilst having multiple cards of the same event means downloading is a pain, it does mean if a single card is lost/breaks that you lose a lot less.

comment Which Nikon kit lens is best to start with — or should I skip the kit lens?
I haven't done any detailed comparison on image quality between the two, but I suspect that you are right, in order to get a wider range of focal lengths there will have had to have been some more compromises made. In my situation I'd accept a slightly lower image quality for the increase in flexibility gained by having a wider zoom range, but your priorities may differ.
