I dont know if $850 is a good price for Body only. I know you can get the kit (D90 + 18-105mm VR) for $1160.
that's what i was thinking... the d200 isn't even full frame i think... its cropped.. i think... the price is good but the d90 has video, and just seems better (review wise if you look it up)
Yea, I mean I guess from research it isn't an amazing
deal but its a fair discount for what the seller claims is a fairly new Nikon bought this month and only has 5hundsomething (I can't remember the exact number ) shutter actuation. Plus the "extra" 8GB Sandisk Extreme III card, which I know sells for less now, but even if found at $30 bucks, hey, it's $30bucks. Sooooooo, in reality i'm saving hummm... maybe 30-50 bucks plus tax, plus money for a SD card, maybe shipping depending on the website... huh decisions decisions decisions I'm trying not to be such an impulse buyer as I tend to be, so let me quarterback this and think it over just a little more...
I guess so far my options are:
$850 - "rarely" used body only with 8GB SD card
$890 - body only (BHphoto)
$972 - body only, 8GB card, ex. battery, camera case, cleaning kit, and USB reader (adorama)
$1160 - Cam & kit lens which by the way, after doing the math, if I decided to purchase the used body only but wanted to buy the kit lens later, it add up just about the same amount (cause if I'm not mistaking the 18-105mm VR is $300), OR I could take that "extra" 300hund and buy a 50mm lens or 35mm (for now since I have a kit lens from the D50), which leads me to my next question, which one you think be best with the D90 (50mm/35mm) AND AND AND AND... still get closer to purchasing a SB-600/800 as well. (BH) DUNNO! Jeezzz
Any input or advice would really be appreciated NT.
