Hi there, I've been searching online for a used d5100 and I was wondering if anyone had figured out a method of testing a used camera. I've seen some pretty reasonable prices on eBay, but some have a relatively short return policy. A camera could have a problem that may not show up for some time and then it'd be too late. The two deciding factors for me to choose this model is the compatibility to the lenses I already own and the video capabilities. There is one seller on eBay (cametaauctions) that offers a one year warranty and I'm wondering if anyone has any experience in dealing with them.

The following are the lenses I own, if anyone sees any compatibility issues, please let me know.

My Nikkor Lenses
Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4
Micro-Nikkor 55mm 1:2.8
Nikkor AF 35-70mm 1:3.3-4.5

Other Lenses
RMC Tokina 28mm 1:2.8
Sigma AF 75-200mm 1:3.8

Thank You,
Rick
