Hey everyone,

I was looking for an FF DSLR because I really wanted a body to mount the Tamron 35mm f/1.4 to. I found a used D800 for under 600€. Note that this is at a reputable camera store, not eBay, so I trust the camera to be in good condition. Has the D800 held up well enough in 2020 to justify the price? Any input, especially from (former) D800 users, is appreciated. Thanks in advance!

(Note on pricing: "under 600€" equates to about 700$, though mind you sales tax is preapplied where I live.)

How many shutter actuations? Left focus issue?

Also, the rubber encompassing the grip had a tendency to detach from the alloy body underneath. I’d check for signs of separation.
