    Second hand D800E

    Looking at a second hand D800E. The asking price is $1800 Canadian. It has 27000 clicks on it approx. Is that reasonable. Seems close to me, but maybe a little high. I have a D7200 and D500. I do mostly wildlife. I do get the chance to do some "wildlife portrait" shots. Would like to try full frame. I probably wouldn't print above 13x19. What do you think? Thanks

    Remember that you will
    Have to get full frame lenses too. The DX lenses used on your present cameras will not work correctly on a full frame camera

    Thanks Don. I only have 2 dx lenses. The 18-55mm and a 35mm 1.8. But I have a 85mm 1.8, a 70-200mm 2.8 and the 150-600mm... What do you think about the price?

    Personally I would buy a new D750

    I think the price might be pretty close. CAD 1800 is something like USD 1300~1400 and for a low mileage D800E that is not terribly bad. Are the strap, charger, battery, body cap, instructions manual, and box included?

    Some merchants make you pay extra for the used accessories (I won't name any names but you might want to surf the web). For example one merchant sells "camera body & battery" only, and charges $25 for the used strap and $90 for the used charger that both came with the camera originally. So, when comparing prices make sure you compare apples to apples.
    9 Nikon single-digit pro bodies from D1H to D5.
    12 Nikon three-digit consumer bodies from D100 and up.
    56 Nikkor prime lenses from AIS 8/2.8 to AFS 400/2.8VR
    4 Nikkor zoom lenses: 14-24/2.8, 17-35/2.8, 28-70/2.8, 70-200/2.8VR
    My fastest lens is f/1.2 (x3) and slowest f/2.8

    It seems like a reasonable price if you get the basic accessories, but it would be worthwhile looking at a Refurbished 750. I bought a used D700 with low shutter count last year. I got it at a good price and I wanted to see what FX was like. I really enjoy the Full Frame. It has ended up being the camera I use most and now I am saving for the 850... I figure I will have the money about the same time they stop being on Back Order...

    I still use my 7200 but mostly with my Nikon 200-500 f/5.6 or occasionally my 70-200 if I go to one of my nieces or nephews sporting events.

    Did you get the D800e? It is still a great camera ad 27,000 clicks is not even broken in. I have 300,000 on mine and it still works as new. It has a pro grade and has been used in a lot of rough conditions that lighter weight cameras might not have survived.

    Hello spb_stan. No I didn't buy it. Thanks for asking. I see a D810 for sale as well but I have to figure out why I want or need it. What is your opinion of a D800E vs D810? Both are slow cameras in terms of frame rates, But I have a D500 for the faster stuff but I don't need a full frame but would like to try one..

    Have you looked at the D750?

    Yes I have looked at the D750 Don. I did some reading and they actually say the D7200 is sharper.. I have both a D7200 and D500. I know the D750 would be slightly better in low light. I'll keep thinking and looking at the options. Thanks Don for you reply.
