Upload & Sell: Off
The sun finally came out in Richmond, and I grabbed my D700 to take some photos. It is dead. As a doorknob. Nothing comes on any screen, no lights, no shutter, nothing even with turning it on and off, changing lenses, cards etc. Now, I have the Nikon battery pack, and I took it off. Nothing. Tried reversing the batteries. Nothing. I am patiently charging both batteries again as a last resort.
Called KEH, from whom I bought this (LN, 900 shutter count) and they were very nice. It is under their warranty, and they will get it fixed. (Donít have a comparable replacement.) They sent me a RA.
Also spoke to their sales people about an idea I have had. Seems I am not using my Fuji x Pro 1 and 3 primes. What if I just traded them and the D700 to a D800, or D800E? Yes, I can do that, and have some cash left over.
So I wonder. Are my lenses good enough for the D800/D800E (see below)? I am not using the Fuji stuff now, but I might some day, and I am only getting about 50% for very new, very perfect equipment. I am confident KEH will get my D700 repaired, and back to me, if that is the direction I choose...
So... this may be a crossroads. Thoughts?
