They think that a collector will want it, since it is not available new any more. The D70/D70S was a very good camera in its day, but it has been surpassed by EVERYTHING that is current.

You know I still use mine. It is still a great 6mp camera. Stobists (I've heard) still love it.

I bought another one of these to throw around about a year ago and it is one of two cameras that lives in my work (non-photography) backpack, the other being a compact. The 1/500th flash sync is matched only by a couple of other models. It's fantastic. But I paid $300 for one used not $2500. I wonder if anyone ever buys at that price. I guess if someone's rich, and asks their personal shopper for one "at any cost" it's possible it might sell. Wouldn't hold my breath though.
