AMAZING MACHINE TO CAPTURE LIGHT! Get 18-140 instead of 18-55 or combo
by Amitojdeep Singh Brar on 2015-06-17
(THIS REVIEW IS INSANELY LONG, PLZ BEAR WITH THE LENGTH FOR COOLNESS OF THE CONTENT!)
I bought Nikon D5300 after advice from my friends at my college's photography club and using a friend's D5200. I read reviews online and found that this was the camera for me and I didn't overspend on D7100 instead for just a weather proofing and faster burst.
Camera and lens are separately review, but the combination is Made for each other!
1.Very low noise
2.Great battery life
3.Conveiniently designed controls
5.Compact but grippy
6.Bright and sharp display
1.A bit front heavy with 18-140 lens
2.Camera bag should have been high density polyester instead of cheapo rexine.
This is an excellent camera to learn photography and suitable for most people who don't click professionally. The low light performance is amazing for a DX sensor! At ISO 1600, the pictures are free of noise (unless you zoom to 100% and do nitpicking) . Even at ISO 3200 you wont need to process them much unless you are printing them, ISO 6400 files are also usable with noise reduction processing.
All the modes work as expected.I would advise you to keep eV to +0.3 on Nikons and -0.3 on Canons for optimal result.The camera catches focus pretty fast due to it's 39 point AF system.I prefer to use only 9 cross type points for ease of use.
Battery life is good, I clicked 400+ shots without flash and it didn't drop a bar! Nikon's estimate of 600+ shots seems valid.In short if you have access to power supply during your night stay, you won't need an extra battery mid day.
Auto mode also works well and is good enough for people who can click only with a phone or point and shoot.My friends(esp girls!) get a sense of accomplishment after clicking a photo using D5300 as they think NOW I CAN USE A DSLR :D !
I think above is enough for me say about it, technical details can be found on review websites, personal experience here!
1.18-140mm is most versatile lens, you wont miss any shot just because you couldnt zoom enough or go wide enough
2.Does away the need of changing lens frequently for zooming in.(You wont be exposing your sensor to dust!)
3.VR is great(true 4 stops VR!)
4.Durable with a metal mount and SOLID feel
5.Zoom ring is stiff to prevent accidental change of focal length
6.Decent bokeh at 140mm
1.A bit heavy, but all quality zoom lenses are!
2.Narrow focusing ring
3.The VR On-off and AF-M buttons don't have to good FEEL
18-140 VR lens is an awesome kit lens! The wide focal range let's you click 99% of shots and is a perfect all purpose lens unless you are a wildlife photographer. At 140mm it's zoom is 8x which is what good point and shoots have. 3x of a 18-55 is pretty much useless you don't have a tele lens in your kit.
The lens is tack sharp at both ends of it's focal length, a rare quality as most tele or multi purpose lens soften at their higher end.At 140mm the bokeh is good enough to bring a pro feel to your shots, but you have to stand faaar from subject.
It does have barrel effect and pincushioning as well as a little chromatic abberation. These can be corrected in lens profile correction option of Camera RAW or within the camera(Yet to test that).
VR is amongst the best! According to review sites it's true 4 stop VR vs 2-3 stop for most lens. Personally , I was able to easily click handheld at 1/6 which ain't manageable without being insanely still on average lens.
Overall this is a pretty versatile lens and the perfect kit lens for someone going beyond family photos due to it's wide focal range and versatility. For travel it's really great as you won't be changing lens every now and then.
DO BUY A HOOD AND FILTER, THEY REALLY HELP!
Please go for 18-140mm kit instead of 18-55 only or 18-55+200mm , you will be really satisfied. Other addition to this great lens will be a 35mm or 50 mm prime.
PS:If you are serious about wildlife or clicking sports at a high zoom, get a 70-300 or better tele with VR or stablisation, it really more than makes up for triple cost vs a reglar tele.
Thanks for your patience ! Hit like if I helped you, your likes more than make up for the time I spent writing this.
register their product with Nikon
by Ankur Jain on 2014-08-07
I got to know that not all camera sold by Flipkart are entertained for warranty due to camera serial number not find genuine. So please register your camera with company and check your warranty. If any body found any issue let post here for other to be careful. This is what was communicated to me today by Nikon customer care.
Here's one way to verify your warranty...
by Girish Bhangre on 2014-11-26
I'm going to take some time to address the warranty issues that everyone seems to be so concerned about. As soon as I received the invoice for my purchase, the first thing I did was to register the product on the Nikon India website. Unfortunately, the S/N provided on the invoice gave me an invalid serial number error on the website. I was a little spooked due to this. I immediately called up Nikon customer care to clarify and they asked me to take the DSLR to the nearest Nikon service center and get it verified. However, upon further observation, I realized that the S/N provided on the invoice was for the Nikkor lens, and not for the DSLR body. There are 2 different S/N, one for the body and one for the lens, and you have to register them separately. I was finally able to register both the body and the lens on Nikon's website and breathed a sigh of relief. So, here are some pointers - while Nikon has advised against buying from Flipkart, I would first ask you to check the invoice the moment you get it. It should contain a mention of the serial number of the product (any one will do since it's unique) and carry the TIN/CST no. of the seller as well. These two things will help you verify a genuine invoice. Secondly, register your product immediately with Nikon India. If it throws an invalid S/N error, you'll know that it's not a genuine product. Alternatively, it could be that the product S/N has not been updated with Nikon India yet. In this case, you can take the product to your nearest Nikon service center and get the product verified from there. Finally, and most importantly, note that Nikon DSLR sold by an authorized dealer will have a serial number starting with 7. This is true for all Asian countries except Japan. Mine starts with 7 as well. And my Nikkor lens's S/N starts with 2. If all these things check out, then I don't think you need to be worried about warranty. As for the DSLR itself, I don't think I need to praise it any more than some of the reviewers already have. It's a fantastic camera with great picture quality and the built-in WiFi is a boon! Before going for this, I was going to get the Canon 60D, but the Nikon D5300 has better picture quality, more features, is a newer model, has built-in WiFi and GPS, a larger display and is cheaper than the Canon 60D. One downside is the battery; it can only capture ~600 shots on a full charge compared to the ~1100 on the 60D. But I think 600 shots in a day is more than enough. I recommend using the viewfinder as compared to LiveView to save battery. All in all, I would highly recommend the D5300 to anyone looking to foray into the amazing world of DSLRs. This camera is definitely the way to start that photography career that you have been dreaming of for so long. :p
by Ashutosh Singh on 2014-07-05
Bought 18-140 kit after a thorough research. as WS retailer was not the seller on flipkart , bought from elsewhere. You should be knowing that 18-55 is tagged as bad lens when compared with 18-140. Moreover, would you prefer having multiple lens like 18-55, 55-200 etc in your kit and then change them now and then for varied shots? this sounds really stupid as most likely you are not a pro who carries primes and zooms and macros separately. D5300 with 18-140 VR is a perfect solutions for most of your shooting needs. It gives a decent bokeh and manual focus is pretty good. Images are sharp and well exposed. Just that lens is heavy like other DSLR lens. My kit is D5300, 18-140 Vr , 1 extra battery, 32Gb Sandisk SDHC 45 mbps card. Advise you to have a similar kit and add primes with time. As you evolve in a photographer you would realize 'Auto' is not a mode for this camera, A good shot is everywhere, you only need an eye to find it. D5300 is your pupil and 18-140 your retina..Go shoot it!!
STUNNINGLY GOOD ! 18-140mm is a do-everything lens, definitely a right choice.
by Supraja on 2015-07-28
No, I'm not a professional photographer. No, I'm not a semi-pro photographer either. I just click beautiful pics when I hang out. I bought this after a dig deep research to gift my husband. I didn’t wanted him to drag around 5 lbs of equipment and hence the choice 18-140 mm VS with D5300. This Nikon baby has everything I want/ever need. Overall, this is an excellent camera for hobbyists. The camera performs very well in most shooting situations (except action in low light). If you're reading this, chances are you are like me, a hobbyist, and this camera is all you need. Reviews.. (1) Picture quality is top notch. (2) Low light performance is awesomazing. No noise at all. Maybe if you're a professional photographer, you'll see it. But for me, the pics are perfect and Focus is extremely fast, even in low light. (3) If you want a walk around lens, get the 18-140 mm. It's an excellent one. Sharp, quick focus, light weight, and reasonable price. Since the camera performs very well at high ISO, you don't need really larger aperture (f2.8 or f.18). The lens also has VR - vibration reduction which is a very nice feature. (4) Camera is light even with the 18-140 lens. (5) The grip is a bit small. Bigger cameras (like D7100) have better grip, but also weigh a lot more. (6) No touch screen. However, most of the times, we shoot in P mode, and we are not a pro photographers, so we don't need to change settings a lot. (7) Videos quality is very good. However, it's not silent. The lens creates noise when focusing. The D5300 has most functions of a professional DSLR, although some of these need to be accessed only through the 'menu' (instead of dedicated buttons). However, that is a small inconvenience as the camera body is small and light as compared to the really big DSLRs. The 18-140 mm lens gives excellent results and the auto focus is really fast. Though the DX format sensor is about half the size of a full frame sensor, the results are extremely good. The faster shutter speeds are fantastic. On the whole the camera and lens is a very good combination. A minor grumble : The 'free' bag which came with the package was a bit of a disappointment as it was not up to Nikon's usual high standard :P Happy shopping.. Cheers!!
Point to Point Review after 4 months use
by Rohit Sharma on 2014-06-24
After using more then four month I am in love with it and definitely you will also be.
Features those were impressive and helpful in day to day photography.
1. Vari-angle TFT Monitor : you need not be on your knees even for ground/ child shots.
2. Absence of Low Pass Filter : resultant highly sharp images
3. In built Wi-Fi : Control this camera with smart phone. Live view, focus and click images with mobile. Instant download to mobile directly from camera. No need to go back to your system to upload pics on social site. just click and upload.
4. Best color capture in images
5. It works best with Nikon AF-S 50mm prime lens. Best for portraits. (You can simply skip buying to kit lens i.e. Nikon 18-55mm cause once you work with prime lens you will never gonna use kit lens)
6. 24 MP Sensor : Even after cropping images in ur system it gives superb results cause 24MP is more then we need. So once you capture a moment it help in retouch.
Awesome Nikon D5300 and Flipkart / W.S.Retail.

Its come with 2 year warranty but i don't know Nikon India accept W.S.Retail invoice as a warranty or not.
by maitreya sharma on 2016-08-07
It is better than canon 700d...pictures are sharp and it has 39 focus points .the photo frame is also bigger than the canon.touch screen is the only feature where it lags behind otherwise it excels..
Nice DSLR camera with wonderful features...
by Kandharaj Johnson on 2014-01-09
Recently I had purchased this DSLR from Flipkart. As usual Flipkart's shipping rocks, as the product reached prior to the scheduled delivery dates.
About Nikon D5300, a compact D5300 camera which has easy to use LCD swivel display. Also the wifi feature in this DSLR is awesome. We can sync the photos with a tab or a mobile. If a touch screen was provided, then this Nikon DSLR would have been complete. But this is nothing to worry.
It is a nice experience to handle and use this device.
Nikon D5300 - Genuine Product - Thanks to WS Retail
by Annamalairaj Jayaraman on 2015-01-28
Purchased Nikon D5300 from WS Retail. Verified with Nikon service centre that my camera is genuine including battery and lens. Thanks to WS Retail and FlipKart. And about the camera, don't have to explain. Cool features. Awesome picture quality. You can check all by yourself on the net. really cool.
I would like to purchase a DSLR very long time. Thus I used to keep reading reviews and comparing cameras. Finally I decided to purchase Nikon D5300.
In terms of money there was a huge difference between WS Retail and Nikon Dealers. So I've decided to purchase it from WS Retail (FlipKart). But I had some doubts on the product and its warranty because I noticed a pamphlet at the Nikon dealers showroom, It was mentioned, "don't purchase Nikon products from online" and also It had explicitly mentioned some of the dealers name. WS Retail is one among them. I got afraid. The thing is that I saw the notice after I made a payment. So I called to FlipKart customer care and cleared all my doubts before receiving. I was assured, it was genuine product and if not I can return the product as I have 30 day replacement guarantee from FlipKart. Thanks to FlipKart.
And special thanks to "Mr.Girish Bhangre" for his valuable feedback. I would recommend to read his review before anyone purchasing the camera. He explains everything clearly about Nikon warranty.
After I received the product, I took it to Nikon service centre and confirmed that the camera, battery and lens are genuine. I got relieved with a big sigh.
So don't hesitate to purchase from WS Retail. Once purchased take to the Nikon service centre, get it verified. If you find it not genuine (worst case) don't bother, you have 30 day replacement guarantee from FlipKart.
Once again thanks to WS Retail for it's quick delivery and FlipKart for it's wonderful customer support.

This is a top class camera. I got it last October for 43k with 18-55 and i'm loving it. Yes the downside is lack of manual control, but i knew what i was buying. WiFi, i thought is useless, but no ! You can transfer the pics immediately to your TAB/Phone for better viewing. I use only 18-55mm and 50mm and fairly happy with results. Its light and small(which for me is a downside) hence easy to carry. It works well in extreme climates(used it at Nathu La Pass). The sensor is the same as that of 7100. And best part is , the DX crop sensor makes this camera ideal for the awesome Tokina 11-16mm. I just Love that lens. You can opt for D7000(older, yet solid) if manual control pleases you. Can check the images, all taken with 18-55mm kitl lens.
A good feature which i recently started using is the Intervelometer feature- can be used to make time lapse. I think Canon doesn't give this feature inbuilt.
If possible get the camera: an 18-55VR II, 55-200mm VR, and a 35mm f/1.8 or 50mm f/1.8, and i believe all the situations will be covered. Then save up for a 11-16mm Tokina (around 37k). Else if Zoom is what you crave for, Spend a solid 25k and get the Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 VC USD. It is better than the Nikon 70-300 which costs almost 6-8k more.
Now i will say about a con- which i knew, but thought it won't be an issue. This camera, in fact none of the Nikon entry level camera provide you "commander" mode for flash, meaning, you cannot wire a flash remotely without popping your camera flash. (However you can achieve this using wireless flashh trigers available for 2k upwards). Nikon d7000 upwards provide this feature. Once you use a DSLR for some time, you tend to grow as a photographer, meaning you'll start using external flashes, diffusers, dolly etc.. If you fell that you want to grow as a photographer and not stuck as an amateur/hobbyist i suggest save up and get a more proffesional (no matter if it is outdated) model, like D7000,7100 OR 7200. Otherwise with the Nikon D5300, youll hit all major spots of photography more broadly than specifically, still providing you with exceptionally good images.
Decide after reading my review
by ps26 on 2016-05-24
If you gonna say, I don't get good pictures with this DSLR, then you gotta kidding me. Thousands of reviews are written about this product & most of them indicates this product in a positive way. There are lots of comparisons with lots of cameras where it came first or even sometimes it's not the best for someone who rated the other camera 1st. So there are some problems which can be minimized anyway. So I'm going to say bad things about this beast then I will go for the good ones.
1.Noise- Three types
i) Audio noise made by any sort of lens auto focus system you connect to this camera, like canon's it can't make a truely silent video if you set the camera in auto focus. It can be minimised by using manual focus.
ii) While doing a video, if you use the internal mic of the camera you will hear a lots of noise, when you review it at your home. You can use a good quality external mic while doing a video and minimise the audio noise.
iii) Noise appears when capturing a long exposure shot which is longer then 10 sec or above, at night. Even when you tune your camera at lowest ISO you will notice a bit noisy image if you zoom it. If you want to minimise it then you can turn on the LONG EXPOSURE NR which is present in the camera's menu(SHOOTING MENU). But remember turning on this LONG EXPOSURE NR, your long exposure shot time will get doubled(if you take a shot for 25 sec then camera will take 25 more secs to process the image i.e total 50 sec). Another way of minimising the noise is using a computer software like lightroom or photoshop if you don't want to waste your time for jumping one shot to another.
2. Live view autofocusing is slow because of using contrast detection technique when you are in live view mode. The solution is try to take most of your shots using the viewfinder. The other solution is to use the manual focus.
3. Manual focus is a little pain using the viewfinder for the first atleast 100 shots. The good solution is practice practice and more practice. The other solution is to use your live view while manually focusing and use your +magnify button to see if it's in perfect focus or not.
4. The onboard FLASH. It's not great and mostly it will give you a very bad shadow and reflection when you capture people wearing glass. The solution is to use 3200 ISO and do post production for removing noise. The other solution is to buy a inexpensive manual flash which is good actually if you want to learn controlling your shots really well. The ONBOARD FLASH consumes a lot of battery also, so try avoiding it as much as possible.
5. There is a intervalometer for taking photos continuously and then make a timelapse using pc softwares. There are cameras which can produce a time lapse video after taking the shots and combine them in the camera and give us a ready made video. But here this camera, you can use the intervalometer for taking the shots for a continous period of time, but it can't give you a direct video out of it. But if you see it in a positive way, you have all the raw image files, then make the adjustments as you want and then make the timelapse in a more artistic way and this is good also because if the shots are not properly exposed then you can make the exposure and other staff like saturation, highlights, shadows as you like and give the final video a better look.
I made a timelapse video using this camera, you can check it out here-[...]
6. No autofocus motor, you have to use the manual focus if there is no autofocus motor in the lens inside.
Here are the BAD ones for me, which I think I can get over. If you can too, then there is no way stopping you from buying this camera.
The Good Ones-
1. Image Quality is awesome. The 24MP is really worthy while cropping and if you print large images then this won't let you down.
2. Easy to use. This is very important because if you don't understand your camera, then the camera can't understand your shot (if you have your own perspective for your frame).
3. Light weight. This is one of the major reasons I choose it over D7000. If you use it using hands, then using it over several hours don't feel a bit of pain.
4. WiFi- Admit it or not it's a great feature. You can take beautiful group photos & if you want to see yourself in your group photos after 10 years of graduation, this wifi feature helps & moreover you can lock your shutter for more than 30 min while using the bulb mode (you don't need a smartphone always to lock your shutter longer then 30 min or using the bulb mode, there is a mode called time mode after the bulb mode where you click the shutter button once it will lock the mirror up & then as long as you don't click the shutter button again it will remain open until the battery dies).
5. Battery gives atleast 1500 shots if you don't review your images. If you review the image everytime you clicked then the no of shots will be 450-500. If you use onboard camera flash for every shot the no of shots will reduce to 350-400.
6. Battery Charges very fast. Hardly take 1 hour if you charge the battery, when battery showing is one bar only. If the battery dies completely then it take 1.5 hours to charge it completely. Charging it for 15-20 min will give your atleast 100-150 shots (hidden quick charge you know).
7. Pair it with tamron 70-300 VR, the photos will shock you absolutely. Try buying the tamron lens I mentioned.
8. Built In Intervalometer can give you the joy of taking timelapses. You will find the camera's true potential then.
9. Videos at ISO 6400 looks less noisy, you can use upto that level of ISO while doing your video at low light.
10. The quality of the display is marvelous. If you see the displays of D3300 or D3200 you will thank yourself for buying this right camera.
11. The autofocus is damn fast while using the viewfinder paired with it's 18-55/ 55-200/ 18-140mm nikon lenses at night. Just try to focus on a light and it will bring a smile on your face.
12. This list is never ending because the more you use , the more you discover the amazing facts about this camera.
P.S- There is also a gps, which I don't use actually, but if you want to use this then try to use it under a clear sky. It will get tracked easily, it consumes a lot battery too. So take a single picture using GPS, then turn it off & then synchronize the location data to rest of the pictures in lightroom.
[...] Thank you so much for reading my review. Will update the review if I find any difficulties/new fact about this camera (and if you click the menu+i button together, the whole camera settings will get a full reset) and stay tuned.
Verdict- Just go for it.
Review "FOR" the first time buyer
by Neo on 2016-03-07
I want this review be helpful for someone who is making a decision for his first DSLR.
One sentence review is, buy this if you value photo image quality above everything else.
Obviously if you are looking at D5300, you will have the following cameras in your consideration. Nikon D3300, D5200, D5500, Canon 600-750D.
Let me tell you that if you just want pictures to be taken in auto mode and do not want to tinker much, then you can choose any of these cameras they are all fine. But if you want to eke out the last drop of performance, there is nothing better than D5300 in cost/performance right now. Why ?
It is the best APSC image sensor in the market that can challenge a D800 (per Ming Thein).
1. No built-in motor. (Not a big deal, most lenses are AF-S anyways)
2. Average Live-view and remote shooting abilities.
3. Typical Nikon video control limitations.
While Canon is busy repackaging their 2009 sensor in incremental updates, the Sony sensor in D5300 is top of its class. By the way, the straight out of camera pictures of D5300 is as good as canon, a weak point for al Nikon cameras before this generation. So the only place it lacks is pro level video capabilities that Magic Lantern can unlock for Canon cameras.
If you need responsive live-view, video controls, skip Nikons. Canon is a better wholesome package. For image quality that is best in the industry D5300 is as good as it gets.
Against other Nikons:
D5200 > While pretty good, I consider the D5300 a worthwhile upgrade.
D3300 > Cheap D5300 with missing features, buy if you cannot afford D5300.
D5500 > D5300 + Touch Screen without GPS
By the way, buy with 18-140mm and not any other bundle, you will thank yourself later. Of course, buy the 35mm 1.8.
Finally I get my hands on a DSLR!!
by Twizter on 2015-11-08
This is a great beginner DSLR!! Bought the Dzoom (both lens VR2) in Oct 2015 for 42K. Delivery was swift but packing was poor no bubble wrap or airfills just the camera box in another amazon box. It came with that 300rs cheap camera bag which can accommodate only the cam with one lens and an 8 gig sandisk 40mbps card.
There are lots and lots of information online say YouTube, snapsort whatever which give the performance specs etc.
I present some of my experiences which might be useful to people who are still deciding (wasting hours browsing the internet) which one to get.
1) D3300 vs D5300
Get the D3300 (same sensor and processor ) and save the extra money for other stuff , bcoz camera + lenses (18-55 + 55-200 + 35) + bag (lowepro or any good brand) + filters (hoya 52mm for all 3) + cleaning kit = 60k blown away (s**t!! this is a very expensive hobby!!!)
The key differences are
a) HDR (can be done in D3300 using manual exposure adjustment and post processing)
b)Auto bracketing. (same solution as in "a" manual exposure adjustment )
c) Autofocus points - I use the central focusing square only for 90% of shots!!!! the other 38 are never used (may be when shooting sports like football, hockey which many of us won't!! ) So go for the 39 pt focusing only if u really need them , u can save 10k if ur not going to use it atall.
d)Flip out screen - breakage hazard! The viewing angles are good enough for u to see when held high and low even without the flip out screen!
2) D5200 vs D5300
Only diff noticeable is the shape and name tag. Everything is the same. (Ok on paper there is newer version of sensor and processor!!)
If u can be patient till you go home and then transfer the pics to your phone , u just saved 10K. wow!!
Ah the GPS ....its there but its almost like its not there!! lol
The D5200 sensor has a better Dxomark score compared to D5300!. I don't know why when the D5300 is the one which is missing the OLPF?
Oh yeh! almost forgot the D5300 has a new battery ENEL14a (white).
PS: RAW banding issue with expeed3 processors (google it only if u use raw format otherwise plz don't bother!!)
3) D5300 vs any cannon D760 /D700
Canon's auto focusing system are far more superior to Nikon's - No of focusing points does not matter , the quality (cross type and their distribution) matters.
Image quality is slightly behind in the canon. For casual users like me , the fine details does not matter or not recognizable. In fact I cannot tell the difference between D5300's pics and my friend's Cannon 700D pics when kept side by side. (both using kit lenses).
Battery backup is poor in lower end cannons, till you reach the 70d range then its the same as Nikon!!!
STM lenses are great quality compared to nikon's lenses . If u get a good deal on Canon 700D + 18-135 STM plz go for it.
Best advice : Go for the cheapest DSLR u can get in the market (they all take great pictures) and buy many good lenses. Don't overspend your hard earned money on fancy camera bodies.
Hope its useful.

And the Nikkor AF-P DX VR 18-55 newly launched lens is pretty good....
nikon doesnt help on warranty
by sooksham on 2014-11-17
Excellent product, the issue is only with the warranty, as amazon is not a authorised dealer of nikon, hence you need to go to a service centre to know weather the product and it's accessories are original and get a valid warranty.
Awesome Camera!! I am just in love with it!!
by Amazon Customer on 2016-08-08
Did a lot of research before buying this camera. I have no qualms in giving 5 stars for this products. The Best Camera for beginners. My advice would be to go for 18-140mm lens and not the kit lens18-55 mm.There is a built-in wi-fi. I fortunate to buy this during the last Great India Sale in January for 40k. D5300 provides excellent image quality. Loads of features. Check for tutorials on YouTube. You can explore more with the camera. Product packaging too good with a Kit-Bag. Thank You Amazon & Nikon :)

All concerns about the genuniety of the product are unwarranted. I registered the product on Nikon India and it is covered under the Nikon India warranty. The Camera is awesome and probably the best mid segment Nikon camera. So don't fall for any rumours about the product being refurbished, not covered etc etc. Buy it from Amazon with your eyes closed.
Got with AF-P lens, images of lens doesnt match the product

Camera is good but don't go with images posted for lens. I received the product with Nikon AF-P DX Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR lens. But if you check the images it has AF-S vr or AF-S VR II lens. When I Google it and found AF-S VR was launched in 2007 and AF-S VR II was in 2014. AF-P was launched in Jan 2016. Will use it more and provide the review on lens if it's better than previous ones
