Looking for suggestions for the best place to purchase a Nikon US Refurbished D1. I have been debating purchasing a D100 or used D1. I currently have an F5, so I don't believe I will like the feel of the D100.
I bought a refurbished D1 from Roberts Imaging. It was like new and came with all boxes, 90 day warranty, software, strap, battery and charger. It even came with all manuals. Price was $1800.00 plus $18.00 shipping. Came in about 4 days UPS. You might check with Ed or Jodie at Roberts about availability.
I have the Nikon F5, F4s, FE etc, etc, etc and I am with you on the feel. I like heavy and tried the D100 and just did not feel comfortable with the weight and some of the features. I know the D1 only has 2.74 megapixels but you certainly can make some large prints with it which are tack sharp. My wife is a digital guru with a large professional photolab which uses Frontier and Chromira and she is able to crank out large prints for me using the normal resolution from the camera except for really large prints (20" or more) and then she interpolates.
I do not regret my decision to go with the D1 instead of the D100.
