LOL neither do I as I have the D5000 which Im fairly happy with, but im longing for a sharp 3" LCD, and AF motor thats built in to the camera.

i'm no canon fan boy, but the 90d is way dated and substandard, spend a £100ish more and get a ultra modern 550D thats practically a 7d in a lighter body!:-D

Got too much Nikon kit to go changing over.

Anyone dealt with this company before:

http://hdewcameras.rtrk.co.uk/?scid=22824&kw=6152361&pub_cr_id=4560371541

Edit: Just called them and it is EU stock too so Amazon is the best price. :)

Other companies mention the cash back is included in the displayed price but this retailer doesn't. Also be careful as one on-line retailer sells EU stock which isn't eligible for cash back though they do make that clear.

Good deal!

holding off until the summer though.
#7
I couldn't resist...

So I have bought one :)

I can claim the VAT back as it will be a "business expense" ;) Then claim back the £60 and try to get £300 for my D80 body so it should only end up costing me £154 to upgrade!
#8
Oooh, tempting very tempting! Hot!
#9
Wow, £544.30 is considered cheap for the body only? The exhange rate really is taking its toll!

I was looking at the 18-200mm VR at around the £350 mark in the past - now it's approaching £600! I think I will have to wait until the £ picks up again before I start buying photography gear again. My D70s will just have to hold out a little longer!!

I'm no Nikon fan boy but I have to say that I considered both the 550d and the d90. For me the d90 just felt so much better in hand so I went for it. Guess it really does make sense to try before you buy as we are all different. No point in having the latest 14bit processing etc if you don't like the feel of the camera. Have to say I'm well pleased with the d90 and the results I'm gettin from it. Great price if you already have nikon lenses.
#11
scalding HOT
#12
The D90 is a quality piece of kit. I've used a fiend's one for a photoshoot, and it was great. With the cashback, this aint abad price if you've already got some good lenses.
#13
on paper spec-wise the 550d trumps the nikon d90. but most reviews tend to suggest that the d90 produces better results.
#14
Yikes, this was £50 more at the beginning of the week & I nearly bought it then as well! Gotta get it now as it's a £110 "saving". The D90 is a superb camera. Just buy it!

Coudn't agree more, Nikon cameras have quality feel to them and feel much better in your hands. I only have a d40x but wouldn't exchange it to any expensive canon.

The D90 is far better in low light is it not?

Hot from me.

I'm an ex-pro photographer (but back in the days when we used 'film' - remember that?) and it's got to be a Nikon SLR or DSLR every time for me. A friend still in the business uses a D90 when he's out and about off assignments and says the results are suitable for general news reportage photography. At 12.3 Megapixels he sells his images to the stock libraries ok so it must cut the mustard.

Do people never get fed up of the whole Canon/ Nikon mines better than your's debate?!?!

I picked Canon because it was right for me! Anyone who says that Canon is crap and Nikon are great (and vice-versa) is a fool. They are BOTH highly respected and quality cameras! Usually the only thing that make a photographer a devout "Nikon/ Canon user" is that you tend to stick with your first body maufacturer as you build up lenses and so its cheaper to keep them and upgrade the body. Im a happy Canon user and I'd have either the 550d or this in a heartbeat. However, for the moment I'll happily stick with my 400d as I need to learn the skills of the trade before I upgrade my kit as at the moment Im the weakest link in my photography....
#21
£774.30 including the 18-105 VR lens looks good too.
#22
Is this suitable as a first DSLR purchase?

I want to get into photography as a hobby and need to start somewhere.
#23
This would be a little more than you would need at first BUT it will give you lots of room to grow with the camera as your skills improve. I'd say that if your budget will allow, go for it, you won't regret it!!!

Wisely spoken words! Both brands are awesome and do offer similar lens types. I went for Nikon but the Canon kit is lovely too and I always felt Canon was a bit smarter at Auto Focussing but maybe it just felt that way when handling both cameras in store.

Yes if the funds permit this would be great. Go any fancier than this and you start to lose auto functions so have to know how to use the camera from day 1. With this you can run on Auto then go over and practise changing the aperture, the shutter speed or the exposure and learn the traits of each.

A few key benefits of this over the lower models is the higher resolution to help give sharper images which is of benefit it printing large images or cropping parts of a picture, it has a number of features taken from the D300s and a big feature I wanted was sensor cleaning via ultrasonic shaking of the image sensor. Dust on the sensor is always a pain so I hope this feature works well.

If you have the cash to splash then go for the D90 with the 18-200 VR lens and you will have a very nice set up to get started with!
#25
Thats my dream camera that.

Great price, especially if you already have those AF lenses. I got a D40 first which I still have and recently bought a D70 to use the flashes in CLS mode for me strobing. D90 has always been on my "to get" list followed by a 70-200mm f2.8 mhhhhhhh

Photography has a long learning curve. Patience and always learning from the pros and asking questions will help tremendously. Stick with it and eventually it will just "click". Good luck. If you can afford this camera make sure you invest in the following lenses if money if not an issue...

Portrait lense - Nikon 50mm f1.8 AF(less the 100 quid)
Portrait lense - Nikon 85mm f1.8 AF(around £250 in great condition)...either this or the fifty will do.
Above lenses work great in low light. Those lenses also have the bigger versions of them with f1.4, very expensive though.

Normal lense - Nikon 18-200mm VR lense(I think the newer version is around £500)
Or just an 18-55mm AF-S for less than £100 will do.

All you lucky hukd'ers who getting this congrats.

I got the Nikon D90 with Nikon 18-200mm VRII Lens + Nikon 70-300MM VRII Lens + Nikon AF-S VR MICRO 105mm VRII Lens, The D90 is an awesome bit of kit!
#27

I emailed them earlier this week as I was interested in their D700 price. I wanted the battery grip offer from Nikon, however they said their stock wasn't eligible, so unless they are sourcing the D90 and the D700 from different places it seems odd.
#29
btw, will be selling my D90 once I find the right price/stock for the D700, so let me know if interested and I'll put it up on the For sale/trade section.

That's not because the D90 isn't great, I love it, just want to move up to full frame.

I'd wait to see the D8000 before getting this. It should be out in a few months.

At the end of the day, the camera is only as good as the hands which are holding it.

Same here.

I'm hoping for big improvements on the Video feature - 1080p with external mic support.

Not for things like low light where there really is a difference between cameras.

And 550D uses similar sensor to Canon 7D. :p 550 Edges out Nikon even at higher ISO, have a quick google for comparison. Either way, Canon's punching above its weight, edging out a more pro model with entry class - Nikon D90's price have fallen as its been out for ages, and Canon 60D is suppose to compete against it - but so far it has not appeared.

True - but take any camera of this caliber, some sensibility in photographer, and put on a fast prime, the result would be pretty good.

Just got my D90 delivered!

It is very very nice! Here is the first pic...

http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=4806341&l=c9c21ead48&id=617221127

Though I have to say it is going back to Amazon!!! I didn't realise the 18-105 was VR and thought my 18-135mm was a superior lens. I can handle the loss in 105 to 135 if I get VR as I do lots of pics from the air so VR is handy. Means I can hold off going for the 18-200 for a while and sell my D80 in its kit box with the 18-135mm... :)
#36
So when is the D8000 due for sale in the UK?
#37
I have a D5000 which I am happy with ; the D90 did seem better but did not warant the price differential. Nikon have fallen behind Canon at this price level ; I think the 550 is better than the D90 ; the D90 needs to come down in price to what it use to be before Nikon brought out the D5000 and pushed its (the D90) price up.

I would wait for the d8000 to come out and then pick up a d90 for a good price.

Probably September at the very earliest, according to nikon rumors

This is an great price for an excellent Camera (which I own) Photos come out perfect and it uses the same technology as the D300.

Heat :)

Looks like the price is back up to £649 again.
