Comments about Nikon Nikon D90 Digital SLR Camera Body with AF-S DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED Lens:

I used this camera most of this past summer for everything from vacation photos to cadid portrait shoots. All my pictures were clean and sharp. Out of the box I had no problems with understanding the operating instructions and taking great photos. This was my first SLR digital camera, I had been using a point and shoot unit up to this point. I did have experience with a 35mm interchangeable lens model and thought the self instructions with the D90 had me taking amazing photos imediately.
