“our tipster says this bad boy’ll be in stock on September 7″ -lets hope so hope that it won’t cost more than $1500-$1600 here in hungary :/ This sucks, and average payment is about $800, but electronical gadgets cost 25% more than in the us.
$800 is for a month, to avoid misunderstandings
D300 doesn’t cost that much more,this better be a good camera
It’s the price with the new 18-105vr lens, so the d300 does cost much more.
500 dollars more you can get a d300 with a 18-135mm Lens from 42photo.comus1photo.comdbuys.com(sites from dpreview.com not mine)
The D90 is new and so no discounts will probably happen till Oct/Nov for the Christmas holidays. The separation will probably be about $700-$800 once it settles down…
those are hardly equal comparisons. best buy isn’t known for bargain basement prices, unlike those stores. the d300 body only at best buy is currently $1799.
Assuming that date is accurate, I’m impressed with how well Nikon’s kept the details of this camera a secret. We still don’t know:
1) What kind of sensor it uses?2) Whether it will have a dust reduction system?3) What are the specs for the video recording? (not that I care)
Also, only one leaked photo so far, and it was a close up shot that didn’t reveal everything.
Does anybody have any info on what the body will cost?
Or if there will be a diffferent kit lens? (18-55 VR) Does Nikon offer different kit lenses at the same time or do they change the kit?
It would be more appropriate to quote prices from more reputable sellers…
Only a 1 year warranty on parts? Is that customary?
Everybody is assuming it will be the D300 sensor and reduction, the real mystery is the specs on the video recording.
I’m buying the D90 over the D300 on physical size alone… so there is more than dollars involved deciding between the two.
Until someone specifically says it’s the D300 sensor, I wouldn’t assume anything. Yes, it probably will be, but I find it curious that none of the rumors have specifically stated that. Even Thom Hogan left that info out, merely stating that it would be 12mp.
You will also know that Thom has mentioned that Nikon is re-using parts to keep cost down, so a 12mp sensor is only on the D300/D700 and I doubt they will do a full frame sensor right now.
Take it up with dpreview.com it’s the 3 listed on the d300 review prices.
now that we know the pricing of the D90, we need pricing for some of the rumored prime lenses!
That’s precisely why I find it odd that he didn’t specifically say that the D90 is using the D300 sensor. It’s not like he would have been giving away any huge secret.
I still wonder if there will also be a body only option or VRII 16-85mm kit.
But I guess that I could get a prime or two to complement the VR 18-105mm and it would do the trick
this price included vat aleady . Right?
In the US the tax is not included in the price. Usually there are no taxes if you buy online.
