    well, I had it for over a year at least (bought it on my honeymoon)

    now, just shopping around probably for a D90, just wanted to ask about the kit lenses that come with this particular one:

    [FONT=Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif]Nikon AFS 18-55mm VR & AF-S 55-200mm VR

    anyone played around with those zooms before? I'm sure the VR would come in handy[/FONT]

    the VR versions of both lenses are actually pretty good.

    I'd rather get the d90 w/ kit (18-135 VR) if you can find one.

    I've only looked on one site atm and still havenrt gone to any small local stores yet

    My old lens was a non VR 18 135 and I was pretty fond of it.

    Cunts took my ipod touch as well, I would of been happier if they took the whole car

    it's actually an 18-105mm VR, they don't make an 18-135mm VR

    I think the 18 105 VR is in another pack that's available. Might be better off just getting the first set of lenses I listed?
