I have now ordered a D2XS with 47,700 actuations - unfortunately I will have to wait until late December to get my hands on it - that's the trouble of living in the UAE - no post, so I am waiting for my parents to visit for Christmas so they can bring it with them. I have seen it thanks to the wonders of Skype - tantalizing to say the least but it looks in good nick - even has a eye cup added - the round one (not sure of the part number as yet). Manuals, brochures and reviews are being studied intensely on line so I can hit the ground running as it were.
I am hoping it will compliment my D200 making a good working combination - it will also be my first Pro Nikon - after years of shooting "nearly pro cameras" - FM, FM2, FE, FE2, N90, N90X, D200 - I finally get my hands on a single digit body!!!
