Went to my local Best Buy store today and they had the Nikon D90 new on a clearance for $599!!! Original price is $1,199. They didn't have any in stock but they could order one in store. This is a VERY YMMV!

the d5100 doesnt even come close to the d90, the lens alone on the d90 the 18-105 is about 300 bucks as one poster stated the 18-55 doesnt come close to it. and for a starter kit the d90 would be awesome for that price

Went into local Best Buy and had them look it up on their computer - where it shows how many each nearby store has. It showed $599 and although they had none in stock they were able to order with free shipping to my house. $655 total with tax in Chicago area.
And there it is - email from Best Buy "your item is unavailable to ship". Bummer.

I think ppl are making story without any solid information, this seems to be fake deal to me. Not a single person has show any solid proof so far.

You my friend are misinformed or a troll. The D90 may not be weather sealed but it is one of Nikons best consumer cameras made. Go down to the D5100 and have no AF motor, No Auto Fp, No cls commander, 1 command wheel, and you can't even lock your focus point. Go up to the D7000 you have oil spots, back focus and iffy autofocus...

Check flickr stats... #1 Nikon camera for uploads... http://www.flickr.com/cameras/nik...ank#models

The D90 is the red headed stepchild of the Nikon line. Go up or down (D7000/D5100) but don't buy this overpriced, all plastic, no gaskets POS.

Thanks for a great deal OP and repped... figured it was time to upgrade the old Nikon and can't beat this deal since I can still use all my current lenses as well... Know others have been looking for some more solid info to help them get this deal, so here you go...

Was able to go to a store in NJ tonight where the price was clearance to $599 and get them to order it for me from another local store that had it in stock via the OMS system. Paid in the initial store and picked up in store #2 (where it was still $1199 and not on clearance) about 15 minutes later, no issues at all.

And to make it a little slicker I had the 3x reward zone points coupon for RZ silver members which means i should get an additional ~$35 back in RZ certificates as well on top of the great price assuming the coupon works with the OMS which it seemed to scan fine.

Hope others can get in on this deal as it was smooth and simple for me to get them to place the order at the initial store. Did the pick up as I figured they wouldn't have any time to change their mind between paying and then picking it up a soon after and am home with the camera now.

enjoy it. it's a great great camera. i got mine for 50% off when it first came out back in the glory days of bing cb. i'm still very happy with it to this date and haven't had an urge or desire to replace it with any of the newer nikon offerings.

So if my store shows unavailable, but price is $599 in their system can I have one ordered for me to be delivered to my house?

If you have something against the D7000 by all means get a D300S or D300. Unless you actually can get one for $599 with a decent lens, skip the cheapo all plastic made for amateurs only D90. But then again, only a noob amateur would be impressed with a D90.

Was given bunch of BS today, but no camera. Local store still shows $1,199, while some stores around show $599, but no availability. How hard (or simple) is it to order one at $599 store and pick it up locally, as described above - pretty standard or YMMV?

kinda amateurish question:

Nikon D5100 or Nikon D90

got D5100 a couple of months and was able to grab D90 for 635 (incl taxes).

confused!!! SLR experts, please advise!

OMS is YMMV, since d90 skus are "deleted" (not restocked/discontinued) at the stores for $599. The $599 stores aren't receiving more shipments, and are only supposed to sell off what they have. The employee still has the option to OMS it, but it's not really "allowed", so YMMV. Price adjustment will be a no go because the system does not allow for it on this item, so as a last resort, but it at $1199 then just do a return + rebuy at a $599 store.
