For $2200 reasonable? Looking on eBay seems about right. Local camera store took one on trade. Cosmetically looks really good. Metering and shutter seem to function well while taking for a test run.  Buffer has been upgraded, still couldn't believe what great condition it was in. Thinking it was a back up and/or studio camera. Was as looking to replace my D700 that died, thinking this would be better. Any known issues?

All: Looks to be in excellent condition.  Strap never used with 2 batteries, charger and all packaging included.  I don't want to over pay or underpay.  Estimates on a reasonable offer to purchase from a friend? I would appreciate any guidance.   Thank you

I understand when there was the D2x and the D300 why the differentiation between "pro" and "non-pro" DX cameras. But since 2010 there have been cameras like the D5200 and D7000 that were far better cameras than these "pro" DX cameras in almost every respect. I had the D2x, D3, D300 and all their predecessors, and now have the D800e and the D7100 cameras. The IQ from the D7100 surpasses all of these DX cameras by a wide margin. It produces images at ISO 3200 that compare well to those from...

Hello dear reader! I have a complication in that I want to move to full frame from my current and trusty D300 but not sure which way to go. The recently announced D810 is a bit overkill and out of my price range so I'm thinking of a D610, used D600, D700 or even a D3 if the price is right. I'm comfortable with all bodies and don't mind if it's big or small. My current lenses are: 17-55mm F2.8 (DX lens) 50mm f1.4 (FX) 90mm f2.8 Tamron Macro (FX) 70-200mm f2.8 VR1 (FX) The only lens that...

I used D3S and now D4S, but a situation often bother me. I often shoot sport and animal theme using thumb pushing the AF-ON with 51 points 3D tracking AF-C, then firing the sutter release with my index finger when I find the right moment. My thumb won't leave the AF-ON even after continous shots, so I can keep tracking on the subject and wait another right moment. I suppost this to be a common usage of D3/D4 series, to seperate the autofocusing and shutter release in different buttons. Here...

...what is the targeted market audience of the big/heavy 1D or D3-4 series bodies? I mean why does someone pay 6.5k on a D4s instead of 3.2k on a D810, and perhaps throw in a little extra cash for a grip to have the extra vertical shooting convenience? I am struggling to understand what more do they offer to justify choosing them. I guess the "feel" plays an important part, one can assume that a nice/robust/properly weather sealed/well balanced/with many buttons/and switches/fast/head turning...

All, My first post here, and while this one is confusing to me, I am sure one of you will have a perfectly reasonable answer.   I did a camera reset on my D3 and then did a test shooting at S, A & P modes for both Large - Fine JPG and RAW. In the first test I started at P and let the camera pick the exposure. Then I matched exposure (1/800 @ f/6.3) and captured a shutter priority and an A-priority shot. Also, focal length was 95mm on my Nikon 70-200 f/2.8 VR. All JPG shots came out at around...

Hi I do some research on the net to justify my step to a 'good' FF camera and found this... what about the quote on http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/d4s.htm: "If you're not a full time pro, or the price of a new camera matters, then no, you'll do just fine with a used D3. The D4s won't take pictures any different than a D7000, which has the same resolution; the D4s just does it faster. See Is It Worth It for more." Euh...I have a d7000 and look for a FF with very good Iso performance . But I...

I am an advanced amatuer. I shoot mainly high speed sports, and have recently shot two weddings which turned out well and I am seeking more. I do get paid for my work and often print large 20x30. Venue's range from inside to outside with some poor lighting. I am currently shooting with a D7000 and want to make the jump to a FX body and not sure where to go... There is a 13k D3 on CL for sale here for a good price, its in great shape and the original owner seems like a good guy, so i am not...
