I just bought (having bought and sold 3 D2H's before) again a MINT condition D2H for 200 dollars.

I wouldn't spend more than a hundred dollars for this camera.

Having said that, there things are tanks and I bet the crack doesn't affect anything. I also agree with the JB weld.

I will get a look at the camera this week. I am looking at this one for a number of reasons.

  • The guy is selling it for a very good price.
  • Yes, these things are built like tanks.
  • Aside from this, the camera is nearly excellent.
  • The camera has only 21,000 shutter clicks.
  • This won't be my only camera.

I think I can live with this, but I will know better when I see it this week.

Boy, I would love to find a mint D2h for 200.00. I would buy it in a heartbeat; even if I already had one (The wife would not be so happy about that). I see loads of really beat up D2h cameras for 200.00 and higher, but never... ever a mint D2h for 200.00. For as old at these cameras are, the really great condition ones still fetch 800.00 or more. That says a lot for how people hold these old work horse cameras in very high regard.
