This sounds a bit fishy a £6000 trade for a £3200 camera, does the camera - D5 come with a guarantee, is it a grey import ?, can you trial and test the camera out before trading in, could you take the camera to a local store to get it checked over ?.

Do you know the trader personally ? and if it goes to pot could you get your money back ?

I would rent a D5 out before deciding. ?

Would be very hesitant in exchanging on this basis as you describe - could it have one or more hidden faults or faults that the trader has not told you about.

My thought exactly - no,  attractive as it is I wouldn't do it unless the person is my brother or sister.
