"Nikon Refurb D7000"

I purchased a refurbished D7000 from Adorama earlier this week and received it this afternoon. I haven't had a chance to play with it until tonight, but I have a few questions:

Is the battery supposed to be new? The battery info section in the menu shows that the battery, after being fully charged, has 65% charge. For the battery age it gives a scale of 0-4 with 0 being brand new, and the battery shows it's a '3'. A 4 shows an empty battery with an "!" over it

And I thought that generally the shutter count was supposed to be low? This one has a little less than 7k shutters (not much considering it's rated for 150k), but everywhere else I've read people are reporting <1k shutters

Otherwise it looks like new and seems to work well. I'm fine with the shutter count, but I would think they could include a new battery

I don't know if they should have given you a new battery or not - check the fine print of the ad perhaps? It might be worth giving them a call about anyway - see if maybe you can talk them into sending you one. Îf they won't, I wouldn't worry about it and just buy a new one - they aren't expensive.

That shutter count sounds fine. Don't worry about it.

I've looked for the fine print and I am unable to find it. My only other experience with refurbished products are Apple computers - and they replace all the externals and any consumables (the battery being one of them)

It's just a bit disappointing is all. If I have to spend another $60 for a fresh battery I might as well buy a new unit for $100 more. I definitely will be calling Adorama tomorrow and seeing what they say

Don't know about the battery, but I wouldn't sweat the shutter count.

Well I ended up putting the battery on the charger one more time, it reached full charge after about half an hour. Put the battery into the camera and checked the battery info again and it showed it as "new" and at 100% charge! I'm not quite sure why it showed it in such poor condition after the first charge, but I'm glad that it shows it in new condition and able to obtain a full charge!

Wow!

Yeah 7k clicks really isn't much but I've purchased 3 refurbed Nikons the last few years and each had between 300-600 clicks and the battery showing up as new.

As long as it looks and performs as new I'd be happy with it.

FWIW I also purchase refurbed lenses and SB900s w/o any problems.

Buying refurb actually gives me piece of mind. I figure somebody bought the camera new, may have had a problem with it (or not) then Nikon gives it the once over and fixes any problem. No need to worry about focus or any other issues.

Go out and shoot and enjoy your new camera!
