This site also has an extensive review on D90. They have separate sections on design, features, gallery and more. They also compared this model with its competitors and other models of Nikon. At verdict they say that this is model is a good buy for its enhanced features and superior handling not for greatly improved image quality. The image quality is comparable with Canon EOS 450D/XSi which is cheaper that D90.Anyway this model is cheaper if you consider with its features that are only found in the semi-pro models like the D300.

5. Amazon.com customer Reviews

The customer reviews at Amazon is quite good and have some information that are not found in other sites. E. Kim thinks that LCD screen is good and separate buttons for ISO, white balance, metering, autofocus make it easy to control it. The video of the camera has a rubberbanding effect for the motion videos. The flash synch 1/200 may also be a con for some people.

Concludion

After viewing all the pros and cons of the camera we may conclude that this camera is the best choice for the amateur photographers trying to snap a good professional quality picture and that too within their limited budget. Though the professionals who are using Pro models such as Nikon D700 or Canon EOS 5D Mark II or Sony Alpha Series may find this one not upto the mark but they have a price tag more than double compared to this camera.

At the end of the day, this camera is a good buy providing the value for the money if compared to cameras of its class.
