p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · I was in Nikon Heaven yesterday


I'm in Japan for work, and a buddy of mine and I went looking for a used camera shop - I thought since the older batteries were withdrawn in Japan that the D300s/D700 might be cheap here (I'm thinking about picking up a D300s). Thought y'all might like this... (sorry for the poor phone pix)







The place was overwhelming - I have some other pix I'll upload. Saw some cool/rare lenses. Strangely, the D700 prices were relatively low (~$1700) where the D300s was $1000-$1100.

I wish some of the stores around this area would stock up like that. Wow!

Was that in Ginza? I went to a shop that looked very similar to that a few years ago... but I know there's plenty of them all around Japan!

Inventory ties up too much money.

All that stuff is probably radioactive.

About as radioactive as Chicago is, surely!

I hope you're kidding... (my joke-meter sucks on the internet)

They do. I skipped that one

Very, very cool place. Wish the D300s prices had been as good as the D700 prices - I might have brought one home...

They had the D800, but not the D800e. Several places had D4's.

All I can say is, being in a camera shop like that is better than having a dose of horse viagra or watching hentai.

If they can have so many used caneras and lenses on display and for sale, why not here, also? I always thought that it was great to see a lens or camera that I once lusted after for sale in a local store used and at an affordable price.

Because we all sit on our butts here and order online.

There are stores like that in the US, just have to look for them.
