I had a chance to sell my D800 for that price, and it looks like I could sell my D850 for that much too.
But Iím one of those crazy guys that want the damn thing too much and Iíll say no thanks, pass... 😆

It looks like a lot of the early shipments are showing up on ebay...some crazy prices being paid to get the early cameras, lots of sales in excess of $4k!

That really sux, I bought from buydig a few times and I had no problems at all, but I called them on the phone, I even asked if they had a coupon and they took a little off and free next day delivery.

So this was my first "trying" to buy a new gear via Buydig ./ Ebay. Looks like they were selling pre orders and came back saying it was a eBay mistake that they showed as In Stock when it was actually backordered. I am cancelling my order with them

Sorry, I didn't know where that statement was directed. The majority of this thread is elsewhere.
But, yeah, you're right, some folks have more money than.....

Just got word that mine arrives on Friday. I have to say, though, if I had someone offering me close to $5k for mine, it would be hard to turn down. If I were not so hesitant to sell big ticket items on Ebay, I would probably put it on.

Problem with ebay is, if you sell it for $4K, you pay $520 or so in ebay and PayPal fees unless you are a high volume seller. Assuming you bought it for $3300 (no tax) you net less than $200. Plus, it is a camera, use it.

The fees calculator says $365 with top rated discount, $405 standard, on $4k digital camera sale. Certainly a lot more expense for sellers than using FM.

Though the real problem with your story is that *Leica* should've offered to pay for everything with a problem like that.


They did, including shipping when I dealt with them directly. But Samys, who I bought it from, wanted to charge me shipping and insurance. Which makes it seem that they would have taken my money, and then had Leica to pay for it.

Anyway, because of that my D850 will not be bought locally from Samys but from B&H or Adorama.

Except that 10% of your selling price (AND shipping charges) is just eBay fees. You also pay 2.9% (plus $0.30...Because Reasons?) to PayPal (and that's on the full amount including what you'll owe to eBay in fees). I presume your amount was $4050 including shipping...you would pay $522.75 in fees. So assuming $3295 no tax, you net $187.25 profit. Minus maybe $45 for the actual shipping, if you do proper insurance.

Still, $142.25 is 4.32% profit on a couple days turnaround and very little effort. Minus a few tenths if you bought the camera with a credit card. If you can get past the ethical grey area, that's probably better than you could've done putting the money in the stock market.

Given the risks involved in dealing with strangers, shipping damages, scammers and fraud, I would pass on that lucrative opportunity. I did make some money on a PlayStation 3 I believe it was. I was traveling and went into a Best Buy to get a charging cable, and they just put on display their allocation of 3 units. The internet was going nuts on these things, so I bought it and flipped it on eBay. Made a couple hundred at the end of the day and question if it was worth it

Well, I heard from BuyDig this morning:

Good Morning,

This item is NOT IN STOCK, there was a mistake on our part and the listing went live even though the item will not be available until the end of the month (ON OR AROUND 9/30). If you wish to NOT wait, I can cancel the order right away, otherwise as soon as we receive them we will ship out your order.

It was delivery by next Wednesday now on or around 9/30.......I canceled.

I used eBay's official fees calculator and had it in my mind that they were including the paypal fees also, but of course you are correct, I was mistaken. Apologies.
