Re: Did I get ripped off based on mileage?

Ebay is notable in what sometimes isn't posted... that is a bit of milage and factor that in IMHO you probably just paid market price, not a screaming deal; relatively new, but higher milage but excellent camera.  If you check Fredmirranda or other sites many D700s with similar mileage going for that.

D700 is a fine camera and will ikely serve you well and the combo with the VRII will produce very nice images to 16x20 and 6400 ISO with care.

Not sure if budget or the fact you thought you had a deal swung you to Nikon versus Canon.

No question if sports is what you want the D700 is still very high performing.   The 5DMKIII is worthy competitor with more pixesl, slightly better noise but a LOT more expensive, and its a canon so lots of minus there
