I'm just hoping mine doesn't look like it went through 6 super bowls a bunch of NBA Finals and a tour of Iraq.

But on the other hand, if it did survive all that, it should last forever

True, but I don't like using stuff with all the paint scratched off on it.

I saw some of the $3000 priced used units at B&H had 300,000 to 500,000 shutter clicks on them 😅

These are workhorses for a reason. I shudder to think what my shutter count on one camera would be if I used it for everything and not spread the shutter count across a stupid amount of cameras.

I donít think Nikon is in the business of rebuilding and selling previously used cameras, are they? Of various stages of use? Do they do that? My guess is that these D5s were a specific lot that had a production fault, a bad part, so they were all repaired before they ever left the factory. They can make some of us pretty happy and write off their loss. I expect the D5 that I ordered to arrive here looking brand new without signs of use. Each one will have been completely gone through, repaired, checked and calibrated and everything made to be perfect. They will be packed in a white box, but otherwise we wonít be able to tell them apart from new in a gold box.

I was expecting it to ship from Melville Long Island, apparently it's coming from Columbus Ohio, did not know Nikon had facilities over there.

Listed as Nikon E commerce, but just looks like a distribution warehouse in Lockbourne Oh. The originating address is for a DHL company and freight forwarding business. So who knows where they really came from.

So my D5 arrived. Scuffed up on the bottom and around the vertical controls just a little bit. I try to avoid scuffs on used gear, but it's not too bad. Doesn't look abused. Grips look and feel alright, controls feel crisp, LCDs all looks great, viewfinder is clean, and the body itself is dust free. The card slots and card cover door are a little mushier than my D3s or D2x, but I'm sure they'll be fine. According to Photosynthesis, it's a later S/N (3006xxx from a 3000-3008xxx range). Zero clicks, and with latest firmware.

I think it's a keeper.

George, did you get one too?

Zero clicks possibly means new shutter?

Delivery scheduled for tomorrow.

That's my guess. Not much in the way of the normal wear and tear that I've seen on other used flagships, just a few scuffs at the bottom. I'm happy with a mostly mint body and a fresh shutter at this price. Good luck on getting a winner!

I got one. Looks brand new I don't see any marks anywhere...waiting on my XQD cards to show up to fire an actuation and see. It does have the latest firmware on it. Looking at MPB used prices for cameras with low 10's of thousands of actuations I think I got a deal. Those are at $3400, lower for significantly more actuations and signs of wear.

Thanks Nikon. I don't need it but will use it for a while now to pick up some lens. Come on USPS lady fill up my mail box lol.

Body pristine, no marks, no wear. Viewfinder clear and mirror clear. Only thing that even has an indication of used is the battery. Going to pick up a couple anyway.

UGH I had forgotten one can't simply plug in a Nikon into a Mac any more (though my D3 let me). Anyhow had to download NX and then that installs what I needed anyhow if there's another way just to see the disks on the desktop someone please let me know.

Using preview it said the image number is 1 in a couple spots under Nikon Shutter Count had a 1 and also on the Exif tab Image number was 1.

If there's a way to skip NX to import someone please let me know...on a Mac and thanks.

Finally got mine in and it's in tip top shape, excellent.
Edit. Checked the shutter count. 200K I'm assuming they swapped the shutter out though. Because this doesn't look like a 200k shutter count camera.

My D5 is here. The camera body appears new, and I can find no signs of any marks on it or blemishes. The shutter count was at 0, itís got a few more than that on it now. My glitch? The charger came with some sort of cord/plug unit for Europe somewhere. Useless for the USA. Itís a good thing I have another charger that can handle the battery.
