p.1 #1 · Nikon D300S W/Battery Grip + Extra Battery WORTH??


I have a chance to get a D300S with the MB-10 Grip and extra battery. Whats a fair price to pay for it. The shutter actuation is just under 7K. Includes original box and all paper work. Body only. Pics look good. Seller said he babied the D300S.

Thanks

$900 cash. Is that a deal? I was thinking about getting a D700 but I just don't know if I should get the D300s instead. I own a D300 now but I wanted a second body for multi lens.

I'd say $900 for camera, grip and extra battery is a great deal. The D300s body only used sell for around $950 +/-.

I'd go for it.

The thing that is holding me back is that I have a D300 now that i use a lot and I really want to go Full frame. So should I spend $900 for D300S and have two bodies or add $700 to the $900 and buy a used D700?? Maybe keep the D300s and sell the D300. IDK

I have a D700 and had a D300 and they are a great combo as they share the same batteries and grip. You will also have to update your lenses to FX if you get the D700.

Guess your profile is out of date.

You may want to check the 17-50 lens, I'm pretty sure all lenses in this range are DX lenses.

Anyway, if you want FX then go for it as the D700 is a great camera.

Unless your D300 is about to bite the dust. Its a Misstep to going Full frame or the D300 Replacement.

I would say yes, unless you want/need 7fps, dual card slots and video.

There are lots of little improvements on the D300s over the D300. In addition to the rear selector (something I use constantly) is much improved. LiveVew and Virtual Horizon are both extremely useful as well.

It has video and slightly faster FPS rating, too, but personally I don't care about either of those.

$900 cash with the MBD-10 isn't much more than a D300 would be...

this is too funny. a friend just offered me $700 for my d300 with the mbd-10 grip i have one it. . maybe ill just buy the d300s because it has little little little use. i believe the shutter count was under 7k.

Your friend is getting a good deal, too. The MD-10 is worth easily $125 in nice condition and the D300 is worth $650+ in nice cond. I've been watching the B&S board fairly closely lately...
