"Breathtaking Digital Shooter"5.0 starson by typicalhero
Pros: This DSLR is a work of art and an affordable one at that.
Very comfortable and solid feeling, a really nice weight to hold.
Image quality is amazing for the price range and it really doesn't get all that much better... really.
Cons: As we've all read: video needs some major tweeks to make it worth using, but its still in HD, so thats a start. Don't buy this camera for video, consider that a small bonus.
Summary: This DSLR deserves the highest rating considering its an affordable little brother in a family of high priced shooters. You get the quality, customization and reliablity of cameras that cost 2-3 times as much, now thats what bargain hunting is all about! Read all the reviews, do searches for Nikon D90 on Google, figure out for yourself that this is a must have and blows the rest away, easily. The lens kit is a perfect start and worth the extra 200 bucks or so, nice mid range. Expect to invest in lenses with better range if you take photography seriously. If you're a new comer to the photo world, you need to know what you're getting into... lots and lots of learning here. Read the manuals and buy a guide, there's so much going on that you need to learn how to use the tools that are provided to you with this wonder of a camera. If you're an experienced picture clicker, you'll be smiling from ear to ear when you dig deep into its menus and features, I know I am.
All in all, this is one of those cameras that truly work for amateurs to pros... the curious and the dedicated. Every penny spent will be entirely worth it, trust me.
