"What's the going rate on a D700"


St. Paul, US
          

Good Morning Everyone,

I'm considering selling my two D700 bodies. I don't see many listed on here and I'm curious what the current value is on them.

Both of the bodies are good condition. I'm pretty sure I have all the original packing materials too. One of the bodies has 125K frams through it and the other has about 40K frames through it. Both were recently cleaned and are in good working order. I just don't know what to ask for them.

Thoughts?

Regards,
Chris

You can check the KEH website for a general idea of what they are selling them for. It will get you in the ballpark.

I've found that KEH is what they are asking for the bodies, not necessarily what they are selling for. Also KEH is a large company with a good return policy so they can sell for a little higher than on a forum.

I would look at ebay then deduct 10% as that is what you would lose in eBay fees. Listing it 10% less than ebay typically gets buyers attention and you would net the same money. Another resource is Fred Miranda forums, as the prices are usually pretty accurate although there can be some haggling.

I have been looking at sales on D700's for a while as I am at some point considering buying one used. What I have seen is as follows.

Good condition with a low shutter count can go anywhere form $1500 to 1700. My local camera store had one with a shutter count of 1000 and he managed to get around $1900. That's to high.

I would say the body that has 40,000 shots would be worth $1400 to $1600. The other body maybe $1200 at best.

I keep looking for a body that I could pick up very clean with less then 10,000 shots for less then $1500.

KEH doesn't tell you shutter counts on there used cameras. I wouldn't purchase a camera a company unless they gave me a shutter count.

Good luck,

Joe

I asked KEH the same thing about shutter counts, they do not furnish them. Great company but this does not make sense. I said before they go to the warehouse do a count, they still said no shutters counts.
Wonder why? It only take a few minutes and can make the customer happy and satisfied--Isn't this is what good sales and customer service is about?

Hi Stash,

I had the same question for them concerning a D3 I was looking to buy. They ultimately told me if after having received the body and I didn't like the number of clicks I could always send it back.

That just sounded all wrong.

I ended buying from a fellow nikonian a body with under 30,000 clicks.

Best decision I ever made.

George

Guess that's what I keep wondering too.... why these are still going so high with better focus algorithms and low light performance on later bodies...would like one for the finder as my eyes age...but otherwise...hmmm

I agree why the high prices with the D700. The camera is good no doubt about that but it's a few years old technology and without warranty.
If I were to buy a D700 now I would pay 1K at the most but again this is my opinion...w/no disrespect to anyone.

Thanks

Thank you all for the input.

Here's what I'm thinking...

$1500 for the 44K actuation camera

$1200 for the 125k actuation camera. I called Nikon today and thy said it costs between $350 and $450 to replace a shutter. I figure a $300 discount for high miles is decent.

Toughts?

Regards,
Chris

There's a D700 on Fred Miranda with 30,485 clicks for $1375.00.

There's another one with 40,000 clicks for $1525.00

Another with 16k clicks, 2 batteries, $1430.00

Those seem like reasonable prices. Now you just need to create the listing and state your price.

I guess I wouldn't pay $1500 for a D700, even if it had 0 clicks. Just me.

I just sold my D700 locally with 12,000 shutter count. I included the grip for $1500.

I just bought a D700 from a Nikonian about a month ago. I paid about $1450 after making an offer which was accepted by the seller. The shutter count was similar to your body that has 40K frames through it.

Hope that helps.
