    That will be a fringe benefit. Mainly selling off everything to up the savings account. We're trying to buy a house this year. The Fuji stuff gives some of the best bang for the dollar for image quality.

    X-Pro or one of the others? Every now and then I think about selling the D200 and lenses to get an X-Pro. They seem like really cool little cameras.

    DO IT. They are amazing and they just dropped the price on the X-Pro1 and the X-E1 by $200 each and bundled lenses are $200-$300 off.


    The Fuji sensor will make the D200 seem like a camera phone.

    Moar D3 pics:

    Note: I had a strip of black gaff tape over the Nikon and D3 logos - upon removal it took off a small chip of white enamel on the Nikon logo. :rolleyes:
    This is literally the only cosmetic issue - no other scuffs, dents or dings.

    Also for sale:

    Nikon ED Nikkor AF-S 80-200mm f/2.8 D lens

    This is the silent motor AF-S version of the 80-200mm, not the screw drive AF-D version. The focusing is quick and precise.

    Only flaw: a tiny mark on the front element, off to one side (not center). It's so small I never noticed it till long after I bought it. Zero effect on picture quality and with the filter in place it's very hard to see. (I tried to get a pic, couldn't get it to show up)

    A few other typical light scuffs on the barrel from being in and out of a camera bag.

    Comes with:
    HB-17 hood
    Kiwi LP-86 Arca compatible tripod plate
    Case
    Nikon L37c 77mm filter
    Caps
    Manual
    Unfilled warranty card
    Original box

    $900 obo

    Oh, I do, but my photo budget for the year is all spent... and I have other things on the list ahead of a pro body anyway. Looks to be in beautiful shape, though.

    Shame to see you have to dump such a nice kit, though I can't blame you. Similar thoughts have run through my head recently. Thought about selling my crap for an OM-D cause truthfully the SLR set up is overkill most of the time. To be honest I've been carrying my GoPro around most places to shoot pictures and video. There's something undeniably gratifying about it.

    I would take a long hard look at Fuji if you are considering the OM-D. Fuji is killing it. Excellent image quality and they have been very responsive with customer feedback. (regular firmware updates, etc) AND they just dropped the price and are doing lens bundle discounts this month.

    But yeah, if we weren't concentrating on inflating the savings account, I'd love to hang onto the D3. It's a fantastic machine.

    BTW - the 28-70mm is SOLD.
