Was I snookered? Purchased a very used D700.
8 months ago

I just purchased a used D700 from a Reuters photographer.  I got the D700, 5 batteries, and a MB-10 Grip for $700.  The camera had tape all over it and the grips were kind of nasty, but the sensor looked great and it took great photos.  The shutter sounded snappy.

Before I even met up with the chap who was selling the camera, he told me NPS had replaced the shutter a short time ago during an event he attended.

However, two days later I check the shutter count and it showed 242,000 shots on the shutter.   I thought NPS always resets the shutter count to ZERO when they replace a shutter.  Is this true?

Was I snookered?   I admit, I got the camera for a great price.
