@jacs, Getting from US with warrenty. So thought its a better option.

@Raghuholla, i checked reviews in many websites & all reviews preferred D90 over others, so just decided on D90.

landscapes are best done with a wide angle. This lens is excellent for low light and street photography, as well as for portraits.

Well as TSK explained you will be better off capturing landscape with 18-55 Kit lens at 18mm end.

111 Eur = 6771 INR so you will be better off buying in India.

No doubt D90 is better camera. It gives more options for you while taking pictures. But as newbie you find them overwhelming. D5000 & D90 share exact same senor, and most cases result in same picture output. Major difference is D5000K doesn't has a AF motor, so you may not be able to auto focus with older lenses. D90 has brighter view finder and has a bigger and better LCD. D90 flash can control multiple flashes (like one in studio).

D5000 price is $629(amazon), where D90 is 850! You can see if the special feature provided in D90 makes sense to you. You can well save on body if don't use those feature, invest in lens! Chiefly get 35 f/1.8! Also get one external flash(Sb-400 or Sb-600)!

Ive been away from this thread for a while, but the couple of pages I clicked through made me realize that people are still citing US prices, hence this post.

I was pleasantly surprised to learn a couple of weeks ago that Nikon India has cut prices for camera bodies and kits to on par with US prices. Check out the site for Nikon India. All body and kit prices have been slashed such that there is no longer any advantage getting this stuff from abroad. The Noida Nikon reseller told me that Nikon has done this to kill the grey market in India.

And what's great is that you get 3-year Nikon India warranty standard. Ive been buying cameras like vegetables since I've realized this. Bought a D-5000 kit for a friend for 35k. Convinced my brother to drop plans to buy the D90 in the US and buy it here instead. Kit is 45k approx.

Standalone lenses are still a better deal abroad though. Lens prices are still higher than the US by about 40%.

50mm 1.8 is probably the cheapest Nikkor lens..I doubt you'll get a good used copy as people seldom sell these lenses. Its better to go for a new one.

Remote control WRS-C1 Wireless Trigger System for Canon

Has somebody used the product above? I am thinking of buying this one as it gives me wireless capablities for shutter release on the 1000D.

I am planning to buy Tokina AF 11-16mm/2.8 for wide angle. Its a bit costly 645 EUR. Before spending this amount I have to check if it is really worth for this amount.

I already placed an order for this lens, I will receive it tomorrow.

I need suggestion for a bag to carry atleast 4 lenses? I search on internet but all of them were camera + lens bags and they are backpack. I want to carry them like a belly pouch. Please suggest.

Yes, I am talking about the 50mm 1.8 only. As amit said, wide angle is best for landscapes.
As far as tokina 11-16 is concerned, remember, there will be many scenes where it will be a tad to wide. A 10-24 or 10-22 or 10-20 lens is better, as it gives you more zoom range.
Canon has a 15-85 IS which is an excellent lens, and 15mm(24mm in 35mm format) is great for landscapes.

As for the bag, 4 lenses and a cam in a belly pouch? Unless you are a kangaroo I would advise against it...

Sorry, I want to carry only 4 lenses, cam I will carry in normal long belt bag. I just do not want to take out the bag to change the lenses.

Something like this.

Got my Nikon ML-L3 IR Remote for my D80. bought it on Ebay.com and got it shipped from Honk Kong to Bangalore directly. Total cost came to around Rs.150 ($3 via Paypal). To me its a steal!

Try the belt bags, like

Lowepro - Outback 300

They will allow you to carry
2 lenses + camera with lens.
Best option for quick shooting.

So if we spot anyone with a belt bag and 4 lenses around the waist, its certain Pawan has come back to India !!

Lucky you !! I realized eBay prices very late, got same remote from Jayesh paying 750 two months back. But I was lucky to save on the hurricane blower, screw adapter and neck strap from HK through eBay that reached last week.

Can you give the link for the same?
Also, are these cheap remotes and the like available in Singapore and Malaysia over the counter? Any pointers to stores?
