I don't think its a bad price. However, for another grand, you could pickup a used D4. Not that its a better camera just newer. At the end of the day it doesn't matter what anyone here thinks about the price. The only thing that matters is how much its worth to you and what you are willing to spend.

At $4k, it's a little high, but not ridiculously high. Prior to the tsunai, a new D3s was $5,200.

Do be aware, however, that:
-Unscrupulous sellers can still find ways to reset the shutter count to zero. They then put it on cH for a few minutes, and *poof*, a D3s w/ worn out/sticking buttons has a "low shutter count"...

-Shutter count, albeit relevant to price, means almost nothing as far as wear & tear on the camera. Either it works or it doesn't, and it usually either fails within the first year or goes for several years.

4k is high.

The current used market price range for the D3s is 3 to 3.5k

That seems a little high. I've seen the go from $3500 and sometimes lower.

Maybe a tad high, but not too bad for an 'as new' camera with extra batts. If you value the extremely low clicks you won't find many with that few.

I picked one up off CL for local pick up with 5200 clicks full history of shots and the guy even had the Nikon bag from local B&M store for 2950. Used it at the Fiesta Bowl and worked perfect. It is an amazing body.

What? 2340 clicks on a pro body? Gotta say I am skeptical. How are these shutter count software in terms of accuracy?

Could be a back up camera or bought by a hobbiest who didn't use it much.

I have a D700 I bought new in 2008 and it only has 8K on it.

I bought a D3s with only about 700 clicks on it, so finding one with a low shutter count isnít necessarily unusual.

The guy I bought it from shot jets and for a very limited customer (base) and had a
5DMk3 and used both. Not everyone rattles of 3000 shots in a weekend. My guy never gets on here or really other sites so did not really follow pricing. I know I would never find another that good but they do come up. I would have been expecting to pay around 3300-3500.

I picked one up for 2500 but that was a steal, I'd hesitate to spend over 3500
