HI All, Well, no more wringing of hands. I bought a nice D2XS along with the complete kit. 45,000 actuation's. Seems to be very clean and well taken care of. Used by a Pro? I wonder.
Back in my F3 shooing days, I saw many F3 cameras that were used by pros. How could you tell? The prisms were dented and worn. Amateurs take better care of their equipment. The F3 was quite vulnerable to this kind of damage.
Based upon my D2XS search, I did not see a single dented prism. Some of these cameras were quite beat up and scratched. But actual dents were rare. I'm forced to conclude that the D2 series, and probably the remainder of the pro series, are very strong.
So, that's it, I bit the bullet.
Thanks to all of you for your thoughts and help. You know, at some point a person just has to follow their instincts. I have done this which some of you will disagree with. One nice thing about buying used cameras is that if you don't like the purchase you can always sell and loose no money. I think I will like this one.
