I bought the d90 body for $300 from someone on Craigslist. She told me she was looking to upgrade and that this body had 20k shutter actuation, which from what I've read is not a lot since most d90's can go up to 100k, but then again what do I know.

What kind of things should I be looking at to make sure the camera is in fully working order? I probably should have asked this before actually buying the camera, but my hastiness got the better of me.

Also, on a side note, I was in a dilemma about what first lens to get, I ended up doing a 50mm 1.4/D vs a 1.8/D comparison and I decided to go with the 1.8/D since I felt like it was the most "bang for your buck." Can anyone tell me if it was a good decision?
