    Purchasing a D90

    Hey all,

    I have been borrowing a friend's old D90 for about a year. I am wanting to purchase it from my friend and need to know what fair a price is, the body has 102,644 shutter clicks, from which about a 1000 are from me. 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.

    eBay's Completed Auctions is a pretty good indicator of prices.

    The D90 Body only goes for $150-175... w/a kit lens as high as $350

    I have a D90 with a very low shutter count. I'd have to check, but I'm pretty sure it has less than 10,000 actuations. It does have one hot pixel that shows up sometimes as a small red dot and was easy enough to clone out. Once I went FX, I stopped using it. If you're interested and are located in CONUS (continental USA), let me know. I bought it new and am the only one who's used it. The exterior is in excellent condition, and I have everything it came with.

    Same here in Germany - a D90 with low shutter count goes for around 150 Euros, which is pretty much in line with the above info. It is a great camera, though (I've had one for years and only replaced it because its AF is a bit slow in low-light conditions), so I think you're making a good choice.

    Welcome aboard. Enjoy the ride.
    We look forward to seeing more posts and samples of your work.

    102,644 is pretty well the expected life for a D90 shutter. It is rated for 100,000+. This means it may last for one more shot or for many, no one knows.

    Thanks for all the info. I'm thinking with the high shutter count that this camera, which includes the rest of the kit, is definitely not worth very much

    One thing you should make certain of is if Nikon still has parts for the D90. It's been out for a while and companies are not obliged to keep parts for repairs after a certain period depending of the country they do business in.

    Not sure I agree here. D90 prices are so low now that they equal or beat the cost of most repairs. For instance, if a shutter fails because of wear, I would look for a new body rather than replace it.

    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.
