Anyone have any experience buying a body online when pricing seems too good to be true?
3 weeks ago

I found a D800e online listed for $1,400 american.  The seller has only positive ratings but the number of ratings is low at only 7...  The camera is listed as used-like new condition.  I emailed the seller and they responded that the box has been opened but there's been zero shutter actuations. Just seems too good to be true but the price point is hard to not take a chance on.  Anyone have any experience with a similar purchase scenario?  Is it even possible that it's a fake?  Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

John
