Cheaper at Amazon (and probably elsewhere) with cashback.

My son-in-law had his credit card details stolen after a Camerabox purchase. So have many others.

Really great camera even if Camerbox aren't.

It's very good for low light photography, here's some photo examples from last weekend's Elvis Costello gig taken with mine. I'm just about to sell mine but not that it isn't any good. It's allowed me to progress and moving up to its big brother the D700.

Photos 1-12 are the D90, 13 onward are the panasonic TZ5, 10 times zoom is good for when you don't have credentials and can't take a DSLR into the gig.

Agree it is a great camera - but why pay more for a grey import than from an official UK reseller?

You have quite an expensive bit of glass on the end of it though. 200mm @ f/2.8. Even the "cheapy" Tamron (et al) starting prices are £600.

I'm not saying the sensor isn't good (it is) but there's a lot more than just a good sensor helping you get those shots.

You can view the photo attributes on the right hand side......

Great camera but alas i reckon the glass on the front is probably worth more than the D90

Nice shots

I wouldn' disagree with you nor would any photographer I don't think. Invest in glass, it will outlive the camera by a few years.

The lens on those pictures is more expensive than the body, however take a look at these from Tom Robinson's Birthday gig. Anything over 50mm was taken with a lens costing under the D90 price (one I just sold for £450) and anything 50mm or under was taken with a lens I picked up thanks to a deal on here for £120 (both Sigma).

Optically though you don't need to spend a fortune to get good glass, the Nikon 50mm 1.8 can be had for around £100 and is one of the best value and best quality (and still great for low light) lenses around.

I need good quality glass (i.e. f2.8 or below) because of the type of work I do, however you can get older Nikon Lenses that are still great for lots less than the D90 body. If you don't need low light lenses then you can get even better value. Take a look here for good lenses on a budget
