    I cannot believe this. GUESS WHAT I AM LOOKING AT RIGHT NOW.

    Nikon D90 (10k actuations)
    SB-600 Flash
    Nikon 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6 kit lens
    Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8

    Guess how much that cost me?

    $585.

    FOR ALL OF IT.

    My current/other D90 body cost me $500 alone.
    The Nikon 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6 should cost $200 used.
    The Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 should cost $500 used.
    The Nikon SB-600 should cost $200 used.

    That's a $1400 value. Those are the cheapest prices listed on ebay right now.

    For $585. I bought it for that much from a guy who lives less than 2 miles away from me. And he was so thrilled to get rid of it because it was way too much camera for him (understatement - he told me he didn't know that you could zoom in/out on photos on the LCD screen, and he has never ever removed lenses from the camera body before).

    I am gleefully dancing right now because that's how thrilled I am.

    So now I have two D90's and also an 18-55 plus the 18-105mm, and hopefully I'll be able to resell them because I don't need two bodies.

    D@mn. I wish I had the money for the body. I'd totally buy it off of you. :/

    But that's an awesome deal!

    So... How much do you want for the extra D90 body? :D

    Super awesome find. You inspired me to scour Craigslist, but I came up empty-handed.

    I AM STILL SO EXCITED. Craigslist gems. Now I can finally justify those hours upon hours of "time wasting", clicking on ads for things I don't need.

    Although that habit also resulted in two cats over the last three or four years... so I'm still trying to decide if it all balances out :rofl1:

    I'm trying to sucker the people of my local Craigslist into buying the body and 18-55mm lens (since now I have the 18-105mm lens), but if it doesn't garner any interest I'll figure out a lower price for the body and let you know!!
