    IMHO, the D90 is a steal given the ratio between its overall capability and current pricing. Yes, these days there are lots of better models, but I know no other $150 DSLR that comes close to this one. I've sold six or seven Nikons over the years, but the D90 is the one I think of most fondly, even though I own more capable bodies now.
    I completely agree with the D90's capability and bang for the buck. I thought you had mentioned shutter replacement in your initial post. I would never hesitate to recommend one.

Thank you for any input, I am concerned that the shutter will need replaced in the near future, and that the camera is basically worth nothing.

    D90 is a great camera.

    102K clicks puts it in the gifting category IMHO.......or perhaps a couple of cold beverages of choice in exchange.
