    How much should I pay for my D800?

    I have a really great deal on a D800 right now and the camera has around 25,000 clicks. I'm wondering how much should I be paying for it? The deal is really too good to pass up, but just curious what others think on the matter.
    Thanks!

    Can we just refer every new topic pertaining to the 35mm 1.8G to a sticky, please?

    I think 60-70% off retail would be good.

    I wouldn't pay more than what a refurbed D800 sells for regardless of actuations...

    looks like reputable dealers are selling refurbed, with warranty, for right at $2400

    Before you make the plunge, check it to make sure it's doesn't have that funky focus issue that many new D800's suffered from. If it does, then make sure you can still send it to Nikon for a free fix.

    He claims it's never been experienced with his specimen, I believe him. He's a friend and knows his gear pretty well.

    It's not something you would catch unless you specifically do the tests described in that link. I would strongly urge you do the experiment.

    Dave is right..I still think you should get a brand new D610..Little less noise, better color rendering, and less MP to have to deal with..Zero actuations...

    I would, but see...I'm getting the 800 for ~1650, even LESS than the cost of a brand spanking new 610...
