    I think you are referring to a grey set....if that's the case then definitely they wont issue a receipt. Maybe you can ask the seller about the seller and BTW...I think its impossible to fake a D90 camera

    You win

    thanks for brightening up my day... I don't think it is THAT easy to fake a good DSLR... unless someone just rips off a D90 logo and slaps it on an older body...which at many a times will show some sloppiness...

    Test shoot it with your lens, if it's a fake, all your portraits will look like Hello Kitty faces.

    Maybe TS is getting it from the BnS...many a chance the receipt will be lost...

    Usually no receipt means the camera is out of warranty. People keep the receipt to prove that warranty is still valid.

    If yours is a D90, NSC shouls be able to tell you whether your set still have any warranty left even if you don't have a warranty card.

    Anyway...there is no fake D90 as far as I know.

    I think you may wish to call nikon centre and check with the serial number on the body.
    Please check properly before you make the purchase for 2nd hand items.

    I think TS is referring to grey set as some have commented.

    If you see the model logo says "Dee90", then you will know for sure it is fake.


    Grey set means it is parallel imported into Singapore, bypassing the authorized dealers. These sets all do not have warranty. Even if you are willing to pay for it, Nikon Singapore has the right to decline any service or repairs to it.

    Nope, that's a FAKE D90 with D7000 power! Kinda like Ferrari engine in Suzuki swift...

    Okay, obviously TS should be refering to a grey set - but title certainly took us by surprise... lol..

    Firstly I've never heard of fake Nikon D90.
    Secondly, if you are buying second hand..
    - if seller claims still under warranty, then a receipt is a must for non-grey set
    - if seller claims warranty expired, then be it a grey or non-grey set receipt is of no use
    - for grey sets, if warranty exists, its usually a shop warranty, meaning warranty not from Nikon service centre(NSC)

    Grey sets are camera sold without NSC warranty.

    My advice is get someone experience with you to help access the condition of the camera since u are not very sure.
