Curious to know if I got a good deal. D850

Hello everyone,

So I've never purchased used before and was just curious to see what you guys thought.

I got a D850 with 4500 shutter accusations. The previous owner had it for about 8 months and decided to switch to mirrorless.

He also threw in 3 XQD cards (2 120gb and a 64gb) along with a Sony XQD card reader, a flashpoint zoom r2 ttl flash and 3 extra Nikon batteries.

Total was $2,200.

What do you guys think?

Thanks!

Is it a USA model?

A generalization (but it depends on the product) for me when buying used is to pay under 70% of the retail price including tax. A better deal is under 60%. A great deal is under 50%. Your price is around 70% (depending on tax in your area) but it also came with expensive extras so I'd say it's a pretty good deal.

If I may add, imho, it will depend on how many shots you take with this camera and how many keepers you get.

Good luck.

I agree with the above poster, if you use it and you get shots you like, then it was definitely worth it.
