    Hi all,

    I had been lusting for a 12-24 for some time, but could not decide between the Nikkor and the Tokina. Also, had a slight crush on a D200 (owned a D80).

    Yesterday afternoon, I saw a post on my local Craig's list where a Nikkor 12-24 and a D200 (with MB-D200 & 4 batteries) were advertized for $600 and $1100, respectively. Needless to say, I called the guy right away and met him. The items were in excellent condition and he gave me a $200 discount for buying both!

    What a great lens and body. I love the wide angle and the solid feel of the D200.

    Below is a shot I took last night with the combo.

    Good for you Lee, sometimes you can get a really good deal on craigslist.
    Enjoy your new toys.
    I have brand new sigma 10-20mm lens like new plus Nikon F100 for sale or trade for Nikon 12-24 plus cash for you, it's in FS forum.

    Be prepared to have the 12-24 change your perspective in life:)

    Hope you like, it is one of my favorite lenses.

    Sounds like you made the deal of the century. I have been intrigued by the 12-24 range but I have to resist the temptation for now.

    You are right, thanks. Corrected.

    Indeed this was my best camera deal so far. They are US models
    bought from B&H last November with only 2000 actuations on the D200.

    Well either way a d200 for 1100 and a 12-24 for 600 is an awesome deal.

    Well it's more like $1000 for the D200 and $500 for the 12-24 as he got a discount. I would've bought them at that price even though I have the 12-24!
     
  14. Wow what a great deal! Wish I had that kind of deal!
