Nikon's D90 is a young entrant. The D80 was known for its quality sensor and was a great mid-range dSLR. The D90 therefore has a lot to prove, especially considering its price.

The D90 we received came along with an 18-105-mm VR lens, with a 6x optical zoom: this kind of range allows one to capture from wide-angles to good telescopic images (for better telescopic images, you should consider the Nikon 18-200 mm lens).

Operating the D90 is pretty straight forward — two jog dials are present — one at the front of the shutter release button and one on the rear near the screen. Accessing them is simple and the feel of the dials is very nice as well, but holding the camera might be a problem for users with smaller hands.

The focus ring on the lens is located on the body instead of the tip of the lens as on some of the other cameras. The camera focuses quickly, even in low-light, and the manual focus is very easy.

The 3-inch screen is exceptionally good and Nikon has implemented Live View in this camera that lets you focus using the screen. The general reaction from professional photographers is that they aren't really fond of this feature. Another interesting addition to the camera is the HD 720p video recording function. The quality of the video is good; the only drawback here is that of manual focussing.

The D90 together with the AF-S DX 18-105/3.5-5.6G VR lens is priced at Rs. 83,950. It's a great enthusiast multi-purpose camera, though!
