I want to ascertain the age of a used D90 Body that I may wish to buy if all the information given by the vendor are correct. Where can I find this information please ?

Everyone I'm sure is going to suggest you look at the number of shutter activations through the exif info but this is NOT a good way to determine how old or how much use a camera has had. Shutter counts can be reset back to zero!
Serial number sequences are not going to be of much help either. Only Nikon knows what all those numbers represent. You can't assume that a high number is going to mean a newer camera versus a lower serial number.
Hi Niko,thanks for your reply.
The vendor was told by his late relative the camera was 1 year old and with little use. He voluntarily gave me a jpeg, I checked it to find 24748 actuations a vast difference to the "about" 2000 he told me. I just want to offer a fair price with the facts that I have.
From forum information I am assuming nearly 25.000 actuations is 25% of the D90´s possible shutter life.
