B&H is now out of those 8 used D700.
Earlier today I saw the 1 of 8 in inventory had dropped to 1 of 2.
Now the link is dead.
Hopefully you got one while they had several to choose from ?

I looked at your link to b&h and they are down to 4 D700's now. Like I said, they get scarfed up fast.
Because of my 1 1/2 yr old grandson who moves very fast, I need a camera that AF's very fast. I also don't like having to go into the menus to change things because of this.

Nikon gets $1999 when instock on their D700 refurbs


Right now D700 refurbs from them are "out of stock"

That's $250 more than the B&H D700 in "9+" cost me three weeks ago.
Same warranty from B&H as from Nikon, 90 days.

After brand new D700 went out of stock I tracked down a couple refurb D700, like in early Oct 2012, and was told by both vendors their D700 refurbs were pretty rough looking.

When did you get your 56 click D700 refurb from Nikon ?

When instock Adorama gets $2199 for D700 refurbs:

If I did not already have a D300, the D7K is what I would get. My only fear is that is what Nikon is thinking too ... which would be a mistake because there are those for which the D7K is not ultimately what they want.

I'm a recent Nikon convert over from Canon. A few weeks ago I purchased a used practically brand new D700 (only 183 clicks) from Camera West in California. At the time they a handful of used D700s; one had 4900 clicks. So, if you're interested in a used D700 they still have a few listed on their website.

Before I purchased my current D700 I went for a refurbished D700 from the Nikon Store. The camera I received had nearly 38000 clicks and the body had visible wear plus I had to pay taxes and shipping. BTW - the final cost totaled $2100 so not exactly cheap for D700 with high shutter count. Needless to say, I sent that camera back.

So just beware that it may be a crap shoot in terms of shutter count and condition of camera (at least for me) if you buy refurb D700 from the Nikon Store. Other folks, like Trenchmonkey, had a way better experience.

While others seem to knock the older technology of the D700 I find this camera very amazing and well suited to my needs. Certainly worthy of consideration in my opinion.

I am with a lot of folks here.... the D7000 is an awesome upgrade from the D80. If you want to experience full frame - D700 is legend, and you can get one for a fraction of the price it originally sold for now. the D7000 is probably the best bang for the buck right now of any Nikon bodies out there - they are so cheap.

Sure the D600 is nice ... but do you really need a D600? Although I should be the last to talk, as I have a D800.
