Now that I have my D4 and have 5,200+ images taken on it, I am ready to part with my beloved D3S to make room for the D800 I also have on order.

In prepping the D3S for sale, I am considering sending it into Nikon service for them to do a professional cleaning of the sensor and focusing screen. There is one little dust particle on the focusing screen that I have learned to live with, but I suspect a new owner might not like.

I plan on packing the D3S back in the original box, along with all the stuff that came with it in such a way that you couldn't tell it was ever out of the box.

Is sending a camera off to Nikon Service for a checkout with the money in helping boost resale value? Any other suggestions in prepping a camera body like this for resale?
