With the value of a D1x in excellent condition to be around $1100.00 the question is "does it pay to trade it in on a D2x" The used value of A MINT D2X is $2900.00 to $3500.00 as per KEH and a few others who have them used. I would assume that the price of the D2x will drop to under $4000.00 after the first of the year and certainly after the D200 starts to really become available and many trade their D2x in to recapture some money. The current retail price is $4495.00 from BH,Adorama,Roberts Imagaing etc. and probably after the $500.00 rebate (which i hear is not working) is over then the price should go down by at least $500.00. Based on these numbers would keeping the D1x as a back up and just buying the D2x makes sense. I do not use the camera to make a living. Its just my loved hobby.
