Excerpt: Nikon refurbished cameras are supposed to be "better than new" according to many forums, but the one I received was a dud. The shutter button was scuffed up and the camera wouldn't turn on after charging the battery. It appears to have been either defective or damaged.Refurbished cameras are supposed to be refurbished by the manufacturer, so this wasn't directly Adorama's fault, but I was obviously still disappointed with my purchase.Adorama's customer service were...
Summary: I cannot for the life of me figure out why there was not mention of the critical fact that the camera will not function without the memory card! Someone needs to apply a bit more thought and intelligence to the product listings, especially a relatively expensive camera such as this.
Pros: Controls appear be well thought out, finish seems nice.
Cons: Got the wrong charger cord - could not even charge the battery AND NO MENTION WAS MADE ON THE PRODUCT PAGE THAT THE CAMERA DOES NOT COME WITH A FLASH CARD AND YOU CANNOT USE IT UNTIL YOU GO BUY ONE!!!! WOULDN'T IT BE NICE IF THAT INFORMATION WAS NOTED ON THE PRODUCT PAGE SOMEWHERE???? WHEN I CALM DOWN, GET A FLASH CARD AND THE CORRECT CHARGER CORD, I WILL SUBMIT A MORE THOROUGH REVIEW OF THIS CAMERA.

Summary: Yes your right, great camera but I purchased the 2x high Definition Crap Filter, and wide angle filter. Like everyone else, I am looking for a nikon camera, but not from Sunset Electronics Crap Cameras. I am looking at best buys, i will spend a little more but at least i know what I'm getting.
Excerpt: Have had two of these in a row - the second one replacing the first, which was a lemon. And, lo and behold, they both turned out to be citruses - not to mention, huge and costly wastes of time. The problem? The same for both: focus focus. Miserably soft images, which granulate in anything but the brightest sunshine, and which no amount of pre- and post-production sharpening and fine-tuning can salvage.
Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay, Poor Image Quality, Poor Image Stabilization, Poor In Low Light
Excerpt: Everything about this camera is great, except that 5/10 times it does not take a picture. Whenever I try to take a close up shot of an object, the camera does not focus the object, and thus doesn't take a picture. The camera also doesn't take pictures when it is held at an angle tilting downwards. This is extremely annoying.
Excerpt: I rented a Nikon D3s and a D700 for an Africa trip and also had the D90 as a backup. I used the D90 for half of a day and never used it again. I sold the D90 as soon as I returned to the US and purchased a Nikon D3s and have NEVER been more pleased with a camera.
Pros: Easy To Use
Cons: Noisy At High ISO, Poor Image Quality, Poor In Low Light, Small LCD Screen
Excerpt: I haven't had a chance to even use or test my factory-reconditioned d90 body. Right out of the box, the memory card slot on mine couldn't physically lock the card into place for some reason. I verified that the SD and SDHC cards were the right variety, so it's a camera problem.I just shipped it back to Nikon at my expense.
Excerpt: Had to return camera after 1st use. Kept showing error messages. Cost to much for me to get no satisfaction when I complained to Nikon. I had to pay to send the camera to Nikon to be repaied under warranty. The camera was a month old and having problems. I requested a new camera instead of repairs because the camera cost too much and I felt it was a lemon. Nikon would not honor my request so I took the camera back to the store I purchased it from.
Pros: Easy To Use
Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay, Malfunctioning Controls, Poor Image Stabilization
Excerpt: I bought a D90 from B&H in Feb. 2010, in spite of having read the many negative reveiws about error messages and malfunctions. It was a big mistake. I am now seeing the same errors and the camera is locking up very frequently. I considered the D90 and the Canon 50D. I am now realizing what a mistake I made. If my experience is like that of the others who have experienced this error I will have spent [$] for a camera that may never work right.
