    Is this an entry for the 'most abused camera'?:confused: 
  2. That one looks like it was dragged behind a Jeep across northern Australia. And back again.

    Not too bad for being under water for 3 months. It was fresh water so maybe all it needs is a good drying out....It'll be the cheapest 4 month old D2Xs you're ever going to see.

    I see it's created a frinzy of interest! LOL.

    Randy, I found the signature funny as well, we have a habit of calling idiots that over at my HT site among the mods, we call the idiots and spammers NN's. lol.

    Jarrell, I think that would be a Rover. :)

    This will probably show up on eBay soon, listed as "near-new, only 600 clicks..."

    Reminder to self - do not bid when these serial numbers show up! :actions1:

    I don't get it, that's what mine looks like.:wink:

    The advert sz its been under water for 3 months and is 4 months old. I can feel that pain just as well as listening at the dentist. At least it was fresh water, salt coulda really ruined it.

    Read the "ask seller a question" section below. Apparently one can't buy the 70-200 seperately, package deal, you know. It is so sad...

    Russ, the ad may read:

    "Currently at Nikon Melville for minor factory adjustments, like new, Glass is pristine. Minor dust, no fungus, lol.

  11. Oh the pain of those pics! My equipment might not be pristine while I'm out shooting, but it NEVER looks like this. Of course, if that kayak ever dumps me in..... :eek: 
  12. Did you read the description in the listing? :eek: 

    "Completely stuffed Nikon D2Xs & Nikkor 70-200f2.8. Onlly 4 months old, but 3 of those months were spent under fresh water.
    Shows signs of needing a sensor clean :eek: )
    There is nothing electronic that works (Surprise), all buttons and dials work fine. Focus and zoom rings seized. Body has been knocked about as shows some signs of wear.
    Now's your chance to buy nearly $9,000.00 worth of camera gear for a fraction of the price. You just wont be able to use it."

    "Some" signs of wear! LOL!
  13. Wow is all I can say

    You have to love his sense of humor - here is his last line in the ad: "Now's your chance to buy nearly $9,000.00 worth of camera gear for a fraction of the price. You just wont be able to use it."

    Ok, it fell off a tripod into the drink and it took 3 MONTHS for him to pull it out? What's up with that? If it was your child, would you wait THREE FLIPPIN MONTHS????

    Now, I'm just angry.

    I like the commment/response that a Canon wouldn't have pulled that stunt.
  18. So what do you think Melville would charge to fix it? Even if it were $2000, that's less than a new one! :tongue:
