    I need your help!

    I'm seriously considering the purchase of the new Nikon Coolpix P90 (as intoduced here: Clues For Improving Your Photography: New Nikon Coolpix P90 Unleashed).

    I can't find any proper user reviews though. Is there anyone out there that owns one, or has tried one? Please tell me what it is like.

    Don't think Nikon comes close in the bridge/p&s market...

    I had to grab a bridge for my father and naturally looked at the Nikons.... couldn't find any specific area the Nikons were dominant in..

    I bought my dad the Lumix fz-18

    Check out the Canon G10 if you want a good ps...

    If you want to stay with Nikon IMO would be better to spend the same money on a D40...

    I tend to agree. Nikon has concentrated their efforts more into the Dslr market and, not done much with the P&S cams.

    No way, I would only go with a DSLR now.

    Thanks guys for commenting. Unfortunately I can't afford to go DSLR at this time. Getting a super zoom would give me most of the benefits for a fraction of the price. I've since learned of an other super zoom being released this month, the Olympus SP-590UZ Ultra Zoom - with a whopping 26x wide optical zoom! See here

    I have the P90 and I see no problem in it. But then again I'm rather new to photography and still learning. Plus I didn't want to drop $700 + on a camera right now.

    If you can afford a P90, you can spend just $50 more for a D40.
