Just bought a Nikon D70 for $20?
1

Recently, on Ebay, I came across an auction for a Good Condition working Nikon d70 body from a reputable camera shop. Since I always wanted one, and had to settle for a NIkon d50 which I enjoy, I decided to bid, and I won. Total cost $28 including shipping. Comes with battery, charger, and manual.

The only thing is that the shutter has 42k actuations. Now some people on other forums state that the shutter for the d70 will die at about 50k. Others have stated that it is rated for, and has gone past 100k.

That being said, I think I got a good deal. Received it yesterday, and it works fine. No sticky body either.

What do you think about my deal? Have any of you who used a d70 ever make it to 100k or do they usually die around 50k?
