  3. What's the issue? The D1 was $5000 at one point with all it's glorious 3mp (rounded off). And that was cheap back in the day compared to what kodak was offering! :wink:

  4. I figured they would have a poor resellerratings.com rating, but was surprised to see they actually have a decent 8+ rating. I figured it was a bait and switch operation. That makes it harder to choose a D700 over a D3 when the D3 is selling just over $1000 more. Buy the grip for the D700, and the price difference is less than $800.:eek:  If I only had the $$$$
     
  5. Outfits like US1 Photo have a worker who submits fake resellerratings.com feedback to pump it up. After a while if you read enough of them you notice the similarity in wording from posters who have only made a single feedback for all the stores on the site.

    A friend of mine bought a Sigma 10-20 from them hoping for a good price. His copy had a tiny scratch o the glass and plenty of dust -- clearly not a new unit. He had to go through the stress of getting his credit card company to revoke the payment when they didn't respond in a timely basis. Eventually they did send him a replacement one and it seems fine, but to me the pain wasn't worth the savings.

    I don't think the company is an authorized dealer for Nikon USA: http://www.nikonusa.com/fileuploads/pdfs/Authorized_Dealers/Nikon_AuthDealers.pdf

    I agree with Medic 1210.

    If I didn't desire a smaller, lighter second FX body partly for remote positioning, definitely I'd try to get a second D3 with pricing headed down.

    I 've shot Nikons for 38 years and I believe that the D3 is the finest camera I've ever seen. Sometimes, it's astonishing to look at what I can do with it compared to 10 years ago when I was using my F5- which I really enjoyed.

    [If someone wants to sell a 24-70mm f/2.8 Nikkor at a reasonable price, please let me know? I miss mine.]
     
  8. Just imagine what the D9 will be capable of in 7 or 8 years. :eek: 
     
  9. B and H has it cheaper $4539.95 :)

    The cheapest pricing, will almost invariably be grey market. It's not entirely bad sometimes, well as long as camera holds up well. But if you have service issues, lookout.

    I think I'm set for a while with my setup. What will I do if and when a D3X is announced, I haven't a clue.
