    a local guy i know has one that is only a few months old 40 clicks on it, perfect cond still under wrnty. It is a d90 kit (not sure if it includes the 18-55 lens) but it comes with vr 18-105 lens. 4) 2 gig cards, 2) 4 gig cards, batt, and quataray tripod. all for $800

    how does that sound? it will be my first dslr....

    EDIT: FFFUUUUUU, the dude backed out on my offer and says he wants $1000 now. wtf! maybe if I cant find another deal within a week ill offer him $900

    pretty sure the tripod is worthless, the Cf cards may be crappy depending on what they are

    wait for nikon crew :o

    I paid 950 for a new d90 body only so 800 with a lens is good

    seems like a good deal.

    but who the fuck only has 40 clicks on a camera? Hell, I rattled off a shit load more than that on both the SLR's I've owned as soon as the battery was charged.

    he owns a company that builds websites so he bought 2 d90s thinking him and an employee would be shooting at the same time to take pics for websites but only ended up using one

    next time you see him, have the cash... pull it out slowly, start smiling and nodding and bust out with the huge grin... let him smell the cash a bit... and then he will no doubt sell it to you for that price.... or maybe not
