I bought the Nikon D90 with the Nikon SB-900 was this a good purchase?
Take the camera back NOW.
Realy why what should I have gotten? I was looking at the D200
aww, you're just bragging! Nice camera, which lens did you get?
OMG that scared the crap out of me I thought I bought a bad camera. I got the Nikon AF-S DX 18-105mm lens - optical zoom: 5.8 x
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.
Uhh.... Probably not considering that you just dropped close to 2 grand and don't know.
I'm sorry, but that's pretty...uh...:???:
Well I need help then don't pick on me.jhees. I want to know if I go back and get the D200 with the Tamron 18-200mm will that be better?
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.
