D7100 and eBay

Hi all,

So, recently sold my D5000 and have had my eye set on the D7100 for awhile now. I went into my local camera shop yesterday, handled the body a bit and took a few shots. It felt awesome in my hands and I've finally accrued the money to purchase a body with some quality glass.

So, I'm set on the D7100, but my main quandary is buying new/used/import. On eBay there are deals like this one all over:

Nikon D7100 Import

I have the money to buy a new D7100, but at the same time $250 is a lot of money to me that could be saved...at the same time I will be traveling to Africa for 8 months with this camera and would like a reliable body.

I know this a fairly vague thread, but just wondering opinions on buying a new D7100 v. import/used...and would you feel more comfortable buying a used D7100 on eBay with lots of documenting images v. an import.

Thanks everyone,


Nikon D5000 Nikon D7100
