D300s for $450? Too good to be true?
Jun 6, 2012

Hi all,

I'm currently shooting with a D3000 and I feel like I've hit the limitations of this system. That said, I've been looking forward to a D7100 announcement, but recently I came across a D300s on Craigslist for a pretty tempting price.

D300s, $450, 2000 clicks

Is this too good to be true? I'm not familiar with buying used equipment (esp. off Craigslist), and it seems a bit too cheap for comfort.

I've asked the individual if I could inspect and take shots with the D300s. Are there any other precautions I should take? Or should I just drop it altogether?

Thanks
