Since you are based in the USA make sure that it's a legitimate USA version else Nikon USA won't fix it if it breaks. See if the meter board has been replaced. Ask for number of images taken. Ask what version of firmware is loaded (should be 2.01). Obviously if they don't show pictures of the actual camera ask for some (to see dents/dings/scrapes etc). Standard eBay warning - if it's too cheap or they say 'email first for best offer' or it's a zero feedback,just registered seller then stay clear.
Hi Andy, The one thing that you should make sure the camera has is the meter board should have been replaced before it is put up for sale.This is not something that the new owner should have to deal with.Also make sure when the shutter is fired that there is no "Err" message displayed. I just bought a D2H from a gentleman and had the "Err" message ,luckily he took the camera back and sent it off for me to Nikon where they had to replace the shutter mechanism. If he had not been honest enough to do this I would have been stuck with a $600.00 shutter repair.Also why get your D2H from ebay, there are always some for sale here at Nikonians and I would rather buy from these guys than from someone on ebay. Just a thought.Good luck.Wayne..
Just use good common sense. That goes without saying on ANY ebay purchase. I got a wonderful D2h from a private seller on ebay. It had something like 4200 clicks and was in flawless condition. The meter board had not been replaced, and it did fail after I got it, but Nikon replaced it for free and within a very timely manner. (Plus the CCD was cleaned. A service included in any repair.) So, I wouldn't worry about that too much.
