p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · A D600 is 2000 bucks with 24-85; what does that make a used D700?


Thinking of upgrading to full frame.

Amazon and others have a d600 for $2000 with 24-85 kit lens.

I don't have any particular need for a 24-85, but would not reject it if free,,,,

Given this, what would you expect to pay for a used D700, especially since d-3s are around at $1500-1800?

I'm thinking that makes a D700 about $1200 or so....soon....

Agree? Disagree? WHY?

Edit to fix $ typo. It's what happens when i try to step up to two fingers....

That D600 + 24-85 will be back to 2500 come sunday when instant rebate expires (and yes it does expire this time). So I guess thanks makes a D700 about $1700 come sunday, so better find a willing seller quick.

Can you confirm they are actually going to end??

Also, to the OP, you may think that's where d700's sould be, but the market says otherwise...d700's i've run across are $1,350-1,750, most above $1,500....likewise, most d3's i've seen are between $1,700 and $2,400, most above $2k...what you WANT to pay and what people are asking are 2 different things...HOWEVER, i do believe prices are going to drop after sunday on the d600, prob staying where they are...that COULD affect d700/d3 prices, but it may not...

The D600 is a great camera and the current pricing is a super deal IMHO. I would not hesitate to buy one if your in the market for a new DSLR.

There is a typo in your second sentence. Price is $1,999

Regardless, the mistake people make when trying to guess the market price of the D700 is they are looking at the D800 and D600 as comparables and then simply adjust price accordingly. Then they are confused when $1,100 prices have not happened in mass quantities. It's not that simple an equation. Sure there will be a few people jumping ship and dumping the D700 for cheap, but those prices are not truly indicative of the market. They are outliers. The missing factor is the perceived value current owners still place on their D700 systems. Most current owners who would have jumped ship would have already, when they felt they could get $1,800 for their body. So, for now they are fairly content holding on to their bodies and aren't willing to sell cheap. Their D700 bodies are doing all that they need. Those that switch now are doing it at a slow rate, dribbling bodies into the marketplace. There is no mass "dump." So expect a slow, gradual price decline. Like lots of technology it's similar to the computer industry. When there were rapid changes, everyone was constantly upgrading. Now, unless there's an urgent need to upgrade a system, people hang on. The incremental change isn't worth it to them.

If Nikon and Canon didn't move enough inventory over Xmas, IMHO they didn't due to concerns about the fiscal cliff, you can expect prices to remain low or decline even further next year. This will also depress the market in used cameras. This could also lead to a dealer revolt against the price fixing policies of Nikon and Canon and rip the market wide open!

The price of used cameras is, in a small way, fascinating. I'm not holding my breath here, but when you look at what you can get vs. what is available used, newer used items seem very high for what you get.

1. The camera is used, so part of its life is over.
2. No warranty. Nikon warranties do not transfer.
3. What would a dealer pay for the camera? Certainly less than new wholesale....

How would you do the math?

Some people dont really care about warranties...for instance, Nikon warranty service is terrible, so why even bother sending it to them anyway!! :-)

I've seen D700's selling for around $1200 for a while now, and some have sold for under $1000 locally in the last few weeks.

Buyers going to FX are expecting D700's to be discounted due to old technology, but any mass dump occured in two phases - first when the D800's finally started shipping and then again once the D600 was available. Like ckcarr said, we'll most likely see a slow, gradual price decline from here on out. One can examine the resale values of the 5Dc as a good reference point.

How many D700 bodies do you own?

Regardless of the kit price the D600 new is still $2000, refurbished they're $1669. When I see a D700 with 60K on the shutter listed at anything north of $1200 I just chuckle.

That's just from one seller, that's not the amazon price.

The deal is over.

It might come back later, but it's over for now.

^^^ K6A7... oh I agree I wouldn't pay asking prices for used D700, I was just using the OP's logic that with D600 at $500 off the D700 was only worth 1200, now with d600 up 500 the D700 goes up in price.

The D600 new for 1600 or less (factoring value of kit lens) was a great deal. But at 2000 I don't think many lower shutter count (say < 10K) D700's will be available for 1200.

Then they will continue to sit unsold like half a dozen are now. I know how expensive they were as I was one of the first people to get one and at the time they were as good as you could get without going to the very expensive pro body but the technology is near six years old now which is huge when it comes to bodies. If I needed a second FX body I would go with the D600 with zero on the shutter.

I am glad I am patient when I buy camera bodies. In October, I was thinking of buying a used D700 on here that had 100K clicks for $1200 .. yikes..

So i posted a WTB ad on craigslist. A guy responded saying he had a Nikon D700, Nikon MBD10 grip, the MC-30 timed remote, Kata Beetle bag (looks brand new!) and an extra Nikon battery, all for $1500. The D700 has 12K clicks. I have added maybe 400 since October.

So after I sold the grip and remote, I paid about $1250 for this set-up, and still have the bag (which I might sell). So atleast when the D700 goes down to $1200 range regularly (maybe this time next year?), I won't "lose" any money on it when I upgrade

Now both the D700 and D600 used prices can go back up again. And the 24-85mm VR.

There are several D600 bodies for sale for under $1700. At this point I think it would be foolish to pay more than $1200 for a D700.
