I have a Nikon D2Xs which I bought in 2008. It has more than 70,000 shots. I usually take photos in manual mode but now my P/A/S modes are not working properly because de exposure meter does not produce a right measurement and the photos are almost all white. I have contacted Nikon repair department and they quoted me almost 500USD to fix it. I would like to know your opinion, should I fix it or is buying a n we camera a better use of the money?
Thanks for your coments. Since the D2Sx has a crop sensor I would consider the D7100 that is getting great reviews. I still want to be able to use my 17-55 2.8DX lens. It seems I will start filling the service forms.

I'm thinking to do the same , since my D2X recently showed an aberrant behavior, suddenly it shooted only "black" pics....and again suddenly it restarted working correctly. I'm sending it to the service lab , and fearing expensive repair costs, I'm considering to keep it as it is and buy a brand new D7100.
Hello Unfortunately my camera is beyond repair because the extend of the damage to the "casing". My understanding is that Nikon charges around 500 to repair a D2Sx, no matter how bad it is — as long as it is repairable. I am into my second month of saving for a D7100!

Luis, that's true, but, there is nothing wrong with a D2Xs. Pro body, good shutter. Nice and quiet as well.
Those new 12 Nikon DSLRs will also be superseded in a couple of years as well. It all depends if you want to keep on chasing the " latest and greatest ". My D3 was superseded by a D3s and that has been superseded by a D4 and, that has been superseded by a D4S.
For the time being, I have decided to stop and keep my D3S, D3 and D2Xs and all those nice common batteries and cards.
I don't need to shoot at 8,000 ISO or what ever. Probably have a nice warm feeling opening up a D4S box, and then have a nice cold feeling wondering why I spent $7,000
