    No.

    Terrible choice.

    Oh, the lens (18-105) is bad (not joking) :(
    Overpriced and soft.

    The 18-55 VR is sharper and much less expensive. The 18-200 VR has far more range and is more durable.

    The D40 body is fine and the SB-900 is a simply awesome flash.

    Bwahaha never mind. I'm going to keep the D90 and buy the Tamron 18-200mm lens and return the 18-105. Now with my Nikon SB-900 can anyone tell me how to bounce the flash? I need a diffuser right?

    Just point the flash at a bright wall, no plastic caps needed.

    I can understand some people are pretty shocked if someone spends a hell lot of money first, and then asks if it was a good idea to do so ;)

    But was has been done has been done.

    Sorry, I cannot judge that camera.

    er...the D90 is a great camera. ESPECIALLY, for an enthusiastic beginner. It's going to be a LOT of camera for you probably for a while. PLUS, you have the advantage of video on it (wish my D300 had this feature).

    Did the 18-105mm lens come WITH your D90 (as in a kit?)? Or did you buy the lens separately? I'm assuming that the lens came with your D90, and if that's correct, I'm wondering if they'll allow you to return a kit lens since it doesn't have a separate box and since it came with your camera.

    Once you figure out how to use your camera, you're going to love it, most likely.
