An early Sunday morning update to the blog. First, I want to wish everyone a fun and happy Easter Sunday. Second, I want to share one of the lowest prices I’ve seen on a Nikon D90 kit. Amazon.com has the Nikon D90 DX 12.3MP Digital SLR Camera with 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED AF-S VR DX Nikkor Zoom Lens for only $1020. And if you’re like me and keep track of camera & lens prices you know that is the lowest price so far for that kit. Nikon’s current rebates are pushing the prices to this low point. This time last year, the kit was well over $1,700, the camera alone was selling for $1400-$1600 without the lens! The Nikon D90 12.3MP Digital SLR Camera (Body Only) has also dropped in price, now only $774!
The Nikon D300 and D700 have also dropped in price. The D700 being a full frame camera is especially a nice camera. I know many of the camera websites are pushing the Nikon D3000 or D5000, but be aware that these camera’s are limited to the type of compatible lenses. For example, the D3000 cannot except any lens without an internal focusing motor, while the D90 will accept both types.
