TRADES CONSIDERED>>> I'm still using a D4 and another FX Nikon, interested in full or partial trades involving a D800, D800E, 24-70 2.8, 24mm f/1.4 - PM, reply here, or email me at johndhelms@hotmail.com with any questions or concerns.

UPDATE - BATTERY RATINGS
Several people have asked about the ratings of each battery, the camera and batteries are all boxed up and ready to ship out, but I remembered I did test the batteries in October before a week long event and wrote the ratings down. There are six EN-EL4a's and one EN-EL4 (1900mAH).

Rating / Date Tested
0 - 10/2012
0 - 10/2012 EN-EL4 1900mAH
1 - 10/2012
2 - 10/2012
2 - 10/2012
2 - 10/2012
2 - 10/2012

I also cycled all of them through both of my D3s's regularly (I keep a pretty good tab on my batteries with all my flashes and bodies and make sure that they all get about the same amount of use). They were calibrated as needed also.

I know, right?

Good thing it charges two at a time though, and I can't remember the last time I used up an entire battery in a weekend shoot.

Wow, this must be on a lot of people's radar (very cool!) - I've gotten half a dozen PM's/emails so far and wanted to answer a few common questions:

1) Not looking to split up the extra batteries at this point, if it's more than what you need just consider them an extra that you can sell to recoup some $$

2) On the topic of trade credit for a D800, I'd basically compare the D800 package being offered, condition, shutter count, accessories/box/cables/etc, along with any extras and compare that with similar D800's sold here on FM to come up with a value. Also if my D3s sells outright the B&H refirb's are looking pretty good at $2,399 to me.


Hope that helps clarify a little bit, thanks for the interest and let me know if you have any questions!

WOW! Great price with all those batteries. If I had the extra cash I'd buy it. Maybe my Tax money will get here soon.

With Nikon batteries the Dreamliners wouldn't have been grounded!

Have gotten several more emails/PM's of interest and have replied. Thought I would post some more of the common Q&A's here:

1) Since I've just listed it for sale, not interested in lowering the price or splitting up the batteries at this point (and I think this is the only active D3s right now for sale on FM).

2) What other items might I be interested in for trades and how much value would I give? I'm pretty open to creative trades including the following stuff: D800 D800E D7k D7000 D5200 GoPro3 black, Paul Buff Alien Bees B800, Vagabond Mini.
For value, I'd pretty much search the FM for sale forum for similar items and use that to compare with whatever you are offering.

Thanks again to everyone for the interest!

This is crazy. Such a great price. Do members not understand that those batteries often get $70 used?!?! Buy the camera, then sell 5 batteries.

Bump for the seller, I would jump on it myself if it weren't for the fact that I'm switching bodies. Cheers!

Thanks everyone - I'm looking to get this deal finalized in the next day or two and have several on the fence and/or trying to put things together.

SO..... I'm reducing the price $50 bucks from $3850 down to $3800 (I'll still include all the batteries and will still pay for the paypal fees and CONUS shipping).

Also, If we exchanged PM's or emails prior to this morning with rough trade-in values, consider that amount adjusted by $50 bucks as well.

Reply to this post, PM, email or call me with any questions - thanks!

I just bought a d3s a week ago, but this makes me want to buy another..... Hmmmm. Free bump. If this is here at the end of the day, I might have to send a pm. Free bump for an insane deal. Somebody save me and buy this.
