"Opinions on the D90"



I was just looking at B&H while considering getting a DSLR for my granddaughter. I noticed that the D90 is about the same price as the D7000. Can anyone explain why this is? I would think that a newer design, with a more dense sensor (pixel-wise), higher ISO range, and more sophisticated movie capability, etc., would draw a higher price! Why doesn't it?

D7000 is for body only, D90 includes 18-105 kit lens. If you want D7000 w/ kit lens, it's another $300...

Love my D90 w/ kit lens...

Hi Tom,

Are you comparing Apples to Apples?
The D90w/18-105mm is listed at $1099.00 and the D7000w/18-105mm is listed at $1396.95 after a $100.00 rebate. There is a similar difference in price between D90 Body Only ($849.00) and D7000 Body Only ($1096.95 after a $100.00 rebate.
About a$300.00 difference w/ lens and about a $250.00 difference body only both after rebates.

Trying to figure out pricing policies will lead to madness.
The last few times I checked prices at the Nikon Store, Refurbished D3's were priced significantly higher than Refurbished D3s's. Given how much better the D3s is, I am mystified at the difference in price.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty

Ok, I guess I wasn't comparing fairly. Thanks for the inputs.

I suggest get the D7000 if the $ is not an issue.
I am using D90 and I love it but D7000 obviously has newer features.

You can go wrong with either. The D90 takes awesome images and slightly less challenging to learn then the D7000 depending on someone's comfort with the camera features.

However, the D7000 offers some weather resistance and expanded autofocus features among many other things.
