Remember the old Samsonite commercial where the gorilla beats the stuffing out of a suitcase?
This is the same gorilla's Nikon gear after a tough day at the office!

For a variation on this theme, see:
http://www.lensrentals.com/blog/2012/05/the-damage-waiver-bearly-covered-this-one

One of the biggest mistakes a photographer can make is to look at the real world and cling to the vain hope that next time his film will somehow bear a closer resemblance to it. - Galen Rowell

I would have liked to see the front element spotless...

D2Xs + AF20-35mm f2.8 + AF35-70mm f2.8 + AF80-200mm f2.8

or

FE + Nikkor 50mm f1.8 AIS

Maybe they were trying a sepia toned toned look.

I wonder if Nikon is "feeding" these pics to the Internet. I've seen another one like it on FB:

So, the question is, if the owner offered this for sale, would you but it?

Thom Hogan asks a similar question, " Would you buy a used D800 18 months from now?" in reference to the AF issues.

I have two words for this: ThinkTank Hydrophobia. And maybe "77mm clear protective filter." Oh- and "HB-29 lens hood."

It's great that it can take a lickin' and keep on tickin' but why risk a $2000 trip to Nikon when a $140 (ok $200 after the filter is included) insurance policy would keep all of it away?

It appears they did have a Hoya filter of some kind on it.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

While it is comforting to know that the camera and lens can take abuse and keep working, why subject it to abuse when it can easily be protected.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty

I don't use filters for lens protection, but in this case I would have used a UV or clear.
