"FS - D800 and a lot of Nikon Full Frame stuff"
Sat 29-Dec-12 08:22 PM by slothead

Frederick, US
          

It is with a heavy heart that I have come to this decision. I am leaving the Nikon Full Frame world and switching to the Micro 4/3 mirrorless system. My reasons are two-fold: I am tired of carrying around big heavy lenses and cameras and the expense of those full-frame systems is becoming more significant than my future budget is going to be able to sustain. So I have a lot of Nikon and full-frame equipment on the block. I take very good care of my equipment and aside from conditions that are acquired with the purchase of used equipment, there is normally very little wear to my gear.

Payment will be by Paypal or bank check allowing for clearing time.

Shipment (shipping cost and insurance not included in pricing) will be per the purchaser's selection and to those within the USA unless arrangements can be made, the cost of which would be at the purchaser's risk (my concern is how the world-wide shippers make shipping estimates - that at times seem ridiculous).

The D800 camera has about 4000 clicks on it. It takes fantastic images and has never had the focusing problem that some seem to report. It has never been back to a repair center for any kind of adjustment. While I had the camera I added LCD and monitor screen protectors to it, and I also added the DK-19 eye cup to it (which works very well I might add), but of course it is removable if not desired. I bought it used from a Florida owner who wanted to switch from the D800 to the D800E. I will be including as much of what I got from him as I can find from the box.

The Markins ULN800 Camera L-Bracket is available (retails for $139.99) and the Nikon SB-900 Speedlight (used to retail for ~450, but currently discontinued - with all its original accessories) is also available.

Several lenses are available since I will not be using them with my μ4/3 system (although some I will be keeping because they will be used). They include the Nikkor 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6 VR (retails for $1046), the Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G (retails for $439), a Sigma 12-24mm F4.5-5.6 DG HSM II (retails for $949), AF Nikkor 28mm f/2.8D (retails for $269), a Nikkor 35-70 f/2.8 recently refurbished (paid $300 + 186 for refurb), AF Micro Nikkor 60mm f/2.8D (retails for $464)

Several bags are available for the set also, including some major long lens bags (I no longer have my 500P, my 200-400mm F4 VR, or any of my TCs). These consist of the Think Tank Shape Shifter back pack, The Moose Peterson MP-3 back pack (the without the laptop compartment), the Think Tank Gital Holster 40 and the Digital Holster 50.

I also have a Gitzo Systematic GT3541L (retails for about $750, and converted to an LS by implementation of an adapter – so the center column is also available with the tripod) and the GC3100 tripod case (retails for about $100), and a Markins Q20 ball head with knob release ($~400).

The grand total that I have invested in this pile of equipment is about $7600 but if anyone is interested in the entire set, I'll let it go for $6000 even (+ shipping and insurance, unless local). Knowing that there's a snowball's chance that someone will want this entire set, I am open to offers for some part of the set, and will consider all assortments and offers (that doesn't mean I'll take them, but I will consider them ).

I will eventually get around to posting pictures of almost everything, but I will be going about it slowly and will add a couple every day until the entire stock is sold.

I may also be posting it for sale on other sites as well, but will consider the date/time stamp on messages and emails from all to assess who gets there first.

Prices for the above are as follows:

Additional Pictures:
These are of the 35-70 although the hood missed the pictures appointment. I have it here, but it just wasn't available for photos - shy I guess...

Tom,
Sorry to hear you will be leaving us. I think many of us getting older will be looking to lighten our gear load. Good luck with the sales.

Dave, no need for despair. I am not entirely leaving you! I am keeping my D5000IR and a few lenses that work well with it for IR purposes.

I just noticed an error in the original price list (first post). The Micro 60mm f/2.8 was described with an asking price of $464, and should have said $350 as an asking price.

I have considered going the MFT route and even bought a Panasonic G3 and 2 lenses. While I enjoyed the lower weight I just couldn't get used to the feel of the much smaller body.
