Anyone found any good deals on the d90 lately? (Aside from anything shady/grey/fell-off-a-truck-kinda-stuff...)

I watch amazon--price goes up and down some (and it usually comes direct from B&H anyway). I have free 2nd day shipping with them, and single day is like $3.99, so it works out well for me. It is $879 (body only) there right now, but I got mine for $839 at the end of Dec.

I've been watching amazon, buy.com, adorama and B&H for a while now... Price hasn't budged from $899.95.

Anyone seen any deals lately anywhere?

Just for fun, I've even kept an eye on my local craigslist... There are about 7 ads for "WANTED: Nikon D90," but of course, no ads with any for sale. ;)

well, I just kept my d80 body (so far). It is really nice to have a prime on one body, a zoom on the other. But, if I find that I just don't use the d80 much, I might sell it. Kinda nice to have a backup, though.

That's my plan -- keep the d80 as a backup body...

Just to follow-up... The plan has come into being. New D90 in my hands. Ohhhh, yeah. Just shot an iso-test and holy friggen' crap on a stick. I can't wait to take this guy to a concert! Plus, now I can hang two bodies around my neck, have my 70-200 and 17-55 "at the ready" and look like a total geek, I mean pro, I mean geek. Whatever. ;)

I've done the two body thing occasionally since then, too. But using the d90 is so damn great that using the d80 is not nearly so fun.

Congrats mate!

D90 is so much fun, half of my profile description is filled with links about it.

Have loads of fun!!!!!

The Nikon D90 is a fantastic camera. If you are looking to get a Digital SLR this is the one to get. I got mine for only $899

There are still a lot of good deals around on D40/D60 kits and D50/70/70s refurbs, not to mention the D3000 for entry level DSLRs without going screaming past $1K for your first DSLR purchase.

I always recommend the base models for the first time user, that way they don't end up so far in the hole when they upgrade.......or decide they're really not as serious about it as they first thought.

I just got my D70s back from a friend after she used it for a couple weeks to see if she wanted to make the upgrade.

She loved it, but is going for the D5000 since the live view and swivel screen is something she deems of maximum importance.
