It's more than $550.00. There would be tax on that as well which would double the price.

Given the above, why buy a used one for $4,200 when you can have a brand-new one with warranty for $550 more?

I'd offer him $500 less (i.e. around $3700).

I'm in Houston and there's a used D3s for sale with 70,000 actuations for a very reasonable price. Aside from shooting some shots with some of my lenses, what else would you recommend. Should I insist on being allowed to having it checked out at one of the local repair shops? It's a full thousand less than new.
Thanks, Steve
