    Go with a friend. Maybe it's legit, if so, then score. Just be careful and go with a preferably a big guy friend.

    BTW with the way he talks and the fact he doesn't have the charger all points to it being stolen, but that persons lost is your gain. You may want to use a fake name though...

    It's a stolen D90 I'll bet but it'll take just as good pictures as one you buy in a store.

    I'd meet in a populated spot, like a cafe.

    I don't think he sounds sketchy. He either researched or happened to guess, that B&H is one of the most reputable places, people prefer Canon to nikon (lol, just a preference), he knows it uses a CF card. I think he's a legit photo junky like the rest of us.

    I am the same way when I post something on Craigs List. I don't want a bunch of tire kickers, emailing me asking if I have it still, will I just give it to them cause they are on disability, will I take payments, will I drive it to their house!!!! You want it, come get it! Don't like the price, keep looking! It's a fair price, it's brand new, comes with a CF card (probably from his Canon gear). I would take it if you are looking for a deal.

    I have a two D90s and neither one take a compact flash card. They both take an SD card. Unless they're the same thing (which I'm 99.9% sure they're not) then he's confused or it's stolen.

    If you think it's stolen I would hope you wouldn't buy it. True, it's a great deal and if you don't buy it someone else will. But it only keeps the thief in business and he/she will keep on stealing. Who knows, maybe I'll see your camera on CL for a super good deal ;)

    Possession of stolen property is against the law. Buying stolen property is against the law as well. Doing so will land you in serious trouble not to mention you will be out of hard earned cash.
