Ok we all have a Nikon that is why we are in the Nikon section.
But was the very first camera you started with that eventually led you to the model you have now?
For me the first camera in our house was a box brownie but I was never allowed to use it (being so young way back then) I was so fascinated by it that every christmas and birthday I would nag for my very own camera. I finally received a Hanimex pocket camera mostly thanks to Graham Kennedy's commerical. The novelty wore off and then when it hit again a few years later I hade Vivitar after awhile I wanted something that I could have more control over and with a bit more ooomphf. At a garage sale I saw a big black camera (well it was big to me back then) not knowing a thing about DSLR's I bought this thing called a NIkon D60 and from there it was onto the D90 and that is where I will stay for long time - love this camera - sure there are newer ones out there but this camera does everything I need it to do, I have no need or desire to upgrade to anything else just yet.
So from first falling in love with a box brownie to my Nikon D90 that is how I ended up here
