I'm considering selling my two D700 bodies. I don't see many listed on here and I'm curious what the current value is on them.
Both of the bodies are good condition. I'm pretty sure I have all the original packing materials too. One of the bodies has 125K frams through it and the other has about 40K frames through it. Both were recently cleaned and are in good working order. I just don't know what to ask for them.

I've found that KEH is what they are asking for the bodies, not necessarily what they are selling for. Also KEH is a large company with a good return policy so they can sell for a little higher than on a forum.
I would look at ebay then deduct 10% as that is what you would lose in eBay fees. Listing it 10% less than ebay typically gets buyers attention and you would net the same money. Another resource is Fred Miranda forums, as the prices are usually pretty accurate although there can be some haggling.
I asked KEH the same thing about shutter counts, they do not furnish them. Great company but this does not make sense. I said before they go to the warehouse do a count, they still said no shutters counts. Wonder why? It only take a few minutes and can make the customer happy and satisfied--Isn't this is what good sales and customer service is about?
Guess that's what I keep wondering too.... why these are still going so high with better focus algorithms and low light performance on later bodies...would like one for the finder as my eyes age...but otherwise...hmmm
I agree why the high prices with the D700. The camera is good no doubt about that but it's a few years old technology and without warranty. If I were to buy a D700 now I would pay 1K at the most but again this is my opinion...w/no disrespect to anyone.

There's a D700 on Fred Miranda with 30,485 clicks for $1375.00.
There's another one with 40,000 clicks for $1525.00
I just bought a D700 from a Nikonian about a month ago. I paid about $1450 after making an offer which was accepted by the seller. The shutter count was similar to your body that has 40K frames through it.
