    Re: is this a good camera

    I'm not a Canon guy so don't know how good the lenses are but the camera is a good one from all I hear and see on these forums.
    That looks like an ebay package so if it is I will caution you to make sure the dealer is a Canon authorized dealer or the Canon may not honor the warranty. Lots of grey market dealers on ebay and most offer substitute warranties which in most cases is worth the paper they are written on .
    Check our dealer feedback forums for trusted dealers.

    Newegg does not get very good reviews, especially if something isn't quite right.
    Are they an authorized dealer.
    Have not had time to do a thorough search but I don't trust review sites that have nothing but glowing reports and this one seems to have not been overwhelmed by the companies hired reviewers.

    They also are not authorized dealers http://www.fatwallet.com/forums/deal-discussion/536423

    Just for the record you can adjust the sharpness, contrast, saturation, brightness and hue within the D90 so that your Nikon will take pictures just how you like them. I believe that a majority of problems people have are that they do not take the time to learn how their camera works and all it's functions, Jeff

    good advice Grandpaw! everyone wants something so simple, but the Nikon is made to cater to the creator. the d90 rocks as well as the fairly new D700!

    Nope. That's because I don't buy from anywhere without reading reviews of the site.
    Sure they do fine sometimes but there are a lot of people that have had poor experiences with them too.
    And like I said they are not authorized dealers of Canon equipment so there goes your warranty.

    Actually newegg is the biggest online tech retailer with a very big and good reputation. For every 1 dissatisfied customer theres a few hundred satisfied. They aren't much into the imaging department, but when it comes to computer parts they are number 1.
