Upload & Sell: On
The new cameras aren't out yet, you don't really know if they'll be announced at PMA (remember the August announcement?). I think the D700 (the ones in good condition) will hold their value very well. I'm not going to sell mine. Its to good of a camera to get rid of. Why buy used anyway? You don't really save much and you can get someoneelses problems.
Maybe, maybe not. But, with the news about Nikon having resumed DSLR production after all the natural disasters that wrecked havoc in Asia, there's a higher chance of the new cameras being announced at PMA than not, IMHO. We'll see if you'll sell it or not after a few months of drooling over the D800. Except for 1 new Canon 7D (when it came out) and a new D7000, ALL my DSLR purchases were used - starting from an old Canon D60 (not 60D), and I've never ever had trouble with any of those bodies, except the brand new 7D which I had to send to Canon for re-calibration, etc.
I sold my D700 (super mint) in the summer for $1800 and it had about 20,000 clicks, expecting the new D800 to be out early in fall 2011. Since I have been shooting mostly with a D3s, the D700 was a "back-up" body. I have seen some bodies for less than $1800 that but with higher number of clicks. FP
Yeah, $1800 seems to be a good price for the buyer at this time, and $2000 seems to be a good price for the seller.

I could see that happening. D700 owners may not like it, but anytime there's a newer model, the older models take a hit. After all, look at D3 prices.
