we looked through all the posts on d1/d2 series cameras and a lot of people said they brought it at that price before the 500 bucks rebate, where do you guys brought it? where, exactly? let us know, thanx!
I went to the Cameta Ebay web store and purchased a 2x for $3700 plus shipping. They are a Nikon dealer, the camera is Nikon USA, it is a fact. rep camera, When I got it I checked the shutter hits, and it was less than 300. It looks brand new, and came in the original box with all the original acces.No rebate, just a good price on a great camera. Cameta warrants it for 1 year.
It works just perefect. Cameta is a very good group to business with. I have bought 2 Nikon bodies from them and would buy again tommorw if I had the $$'s to do so. The money I saved paid for my 17-55. Doesn't get any better than that.
I think you got a great deal, but a brand new D2X is less than $4000 right now from B&H (after rebate). I think you were a little lucky on the factory refurb at 300 shutter clicks. I personally would pay the extra $250 for a brand-new one, but that is just me. I think I remember a Nikonian bought one with 10,000 clicks... but that is just heresay until I can find the post.
