I bought one spring of 2012, 40k with box, receipt and everything that it came with - $2600.00 I did sell it a few months later for $3500.00 Then a few months later ( about a year ago ), I bought a brand new D4 with 0 actuations with box and receipt and everything that came with it for $4500 So considering I made $900 on the D3S, I was in to a brand new D4 for $3600.

And no, I don't think the price of a D3S will drop to $2500 any time soon. The price of the D4S at around $6600 should keep both D3S and D4 prices up. It's a long ways from $3500 for a D3S to $6600 + tax for a new 4S! Here in Toronto that's just under $7500 tax in.

The price of the D3S is already around $2500, a bit more if you want a flawless one. They have been selling on FM for $2500-3000 and those were just asking prices, so the actual sales are likely less, and some included extras. It's not hard to get one under $3K right now.

They haven't dropped that low here in Toronto. $3500 seems to be the asking number. Did see one with 80+k for $3100 but that's the lowest I've seen. And I've only ever seen a couple under $3000 here, one of which I bought.

$2600 1.5 years ago though is incredible, that was a good find. I'd have jumped on that too.

Some complete idiot paid $8,600 for a used one on eBay in December 2013 - that, I cannot explain LOL.
