I guided my friends towards the Z system. He recently bought the Z lens and decided that there is no need to keep the Nikon Nikkor AF-S 24-70mm f2.8 G ED IF ASPH Lens AFS anymore.

This lens was the king of Nikon line up for the FX D series. B&H is still selling it for $1,600. Normally, top condition used lens would command about two thirds of new price.

I have just sold it for $500 and I consider myself lucky. There are many offering, from very reputable dealers like Roberts Camera for mid $400 or less.

A while back, I sold the D800 with only 7,400 clicks for only $450.

I can only explain that the D series FX is an ophan product because of the Z series.

That lens was not the king of the Nikon line up in the F-mount.

It was replaced by the VR version.

I don't know of anyone who would pay 1600 USD for the non-VR version new...B&H lists them used at about $800-900 - so estimate of about 2/3 of the selling price is about right.

Same with the D800 - there was D810 and D850 that replaced it. Plus there was more interest in the D800e than the D800 and that's reflected in the used prices.
