Hate to suggest this but I think you are going to have to price this below $3000 before it has a chance of selling. None of the used D2Xs bodies on eBay, which has millions of viewers, has sold for much over $2800 unless is had a lens with it.

Take the best offer you can get quickly because every month it is going to drop another $400 to $500, especially one the D3 hits the streets.

I have a D1X that I would be happy to get $500 for.

Thanks, Norm. You've effectively told anyone who was considering buying this 6 month old camera for which I paid $4600, to go to ebay instead or offer me $2800. I appreciate your help with the sale.

Thanks, Petrieme. I think you're right. I did get an offer for $3400 but I didn't act quickly and she bought another. Frankly, I'm wavering on selling it. I'm not convinced the D300 is enough camera to bury the D2Xs. And the D3 is muy expensive. So, if worse comes to worse, the D2Xs will do me quite well.

I agree totally. At the current "market prices", I think the D2's are a bargain. Best of luck.

To all the folks who made offers to buy and offers of support, I thank you. I have decided to withdraw the camera from sale.

Best of luck to those of you searching for a D2Xs--it is an excellent camera.

JD,

I'm sorry I didn't think of that. But, people buy off this site for more than bottom dollar items. They feel that members who populate this site are more knowledgeable and take care of their equipment. EBay buyers take a big risk.

A question - how many other offers have you had over $3000?

I know the area you paid for that camera as I have purchased two $5000 Nikon digital bodies as well, only to watch the price drop like a plate falling off a dinner table. I spoke from experience about taking the best offer you have in hand because the price will drop week to week. The lady who offered you $3400 probably realized that she could get it at a lower price. That is the result of being on the Internet. Doesn't take long to find out these things.

Again, I am sorry to have spoiled your attempt at selling for your asking figure and I will not repeat my mistake. If there was any way to send you a private message (maybe there is and I just don't know how), I would have done so.

Norm

Norm,
Thank you for the apology. For future reference, if you put your mouse cursor over the icons at the top of a message (directly underneath the date and time at the top of the box) you will see that one of them is for PM's, personal messages. You can also send email directly to a poster.

It's just my opinion, but I believe that the current sales of D2Xs's at ridiculously low prices has an element of panic to it. I think that when the D300 is released, people will realize that the D2Xs is a superior camera and its value will rise. If you look at current prices for new D2Xs's, you'll see that retailers like B&H are still pricing it at around $4300.

I could understand people posting warnings or being "Price police" if someone was selling a camera at a rip-off price, for instance, if I was asking $5000 for mine. But I listed mine at over $1200 less than I paid for it a few months ago. Any potential buyer has the freedom to pay that price or wait for a lesser priced camera. If someone thinks my price is too steep, the solution is to ignore it.

At any rate, it's a moot point. The camera is worth more to me than to others who are selling. I'll keep it.

Thanks,
JD
