It arrived in a white box, with the precious bits wrapped in bubble wrap. It seems to have all the caps and accessories that come with the camera.

I can discern absolutely no previous signs of use on either the body or the lens. The gear is "as new" as far as I am concerned.

The firmware was 1.01 and the date on the clock was August 4, 2018.

According to various websites that determine the number of shutter actuations, the first photo I took was the first shutter actuation the camera experienced.

There was no paperwork, software CDs (if those are supplied anymore) or other documentation.

The only indicator that this is a refurb are the subtle pin-marked "dimples" on either side of the serial numbers on both pieces.

Overall, I am very happy with my refurb gamble.

I'm also excited to be using a Nikon body again after switching from my beloved D700 to Sony. I switched to Sony because I wanted the video capabilities of the A7s and I loved the idea of full frame mirrorless. But I've always hated the handling and UX with the Sony body, especially the menu system.

I bought the Techart Sony to Nikon Z adapter so I could use some of my Sony lenses on my Z6 and that seems to be working out well.

It's good to be shooting a Nikon body again.

B&H is top notch. I NEVER have an issue with buying new, used, or refurb from them. If there is an issue, they'll take full care of you. Enjoy your purchase!!!
