    Also, note the $15 cost of shipping for a camera that should be free, given the description, the apparent condition, and the poor pix.

    I'm sure the cost of insuring such a valuable camera is included in the shipping ... :smile:

    Be fair now, MissLucy is american after all where it's the norm to miss letters out of words like Maths, Colour etc, and misspell words like litre and fibre :D

    On the other hand a lot of people assume I mean D90 when I say N90.

    Same with the grip, a lot of people put the MB-D10 down as MB10, when the true MB10 is for the N90s.

    A lot of people also refer to memory cards as "film."

    I think her dating is a bit off also, "could be 70s or 80s"
    Yeah, I saw a lot of cameras that looked like that in shops in the '80s

    Just to come in with a positive note, I had one of those at one point and they actually produce very nice pictures. I'm not sure that one would, though. However, it could be surprising. I've seen cameras that looked worse than that on the outside cleaned up and working very well.

    The shipping, though, is outrageous.

    I wonder if she'd trade for a Cannon? When I fire off a few with that the neighbors complain.
    Or maybe a nickon with lenses? In great shape, promise. I've never dropped my nikkers.

    Reminds me of the endless tide of people who list a lens hood in the cameras section along with the model names of every nikon camera they can think of.
