On sale: NIKON D700 + AF-S NIKKOR 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VRII

I am a hobbyist photographer (working my way up to pro) and a Nikon D700 owner. Since Nikon recently released two new dSLR models, the D4 and the D800, I am considering upgrading to the new D800.
For this reason, my actual D700 and one of my lenses (the 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VRII) go on sale. As a bonus, I throw in a 16 GB 133x Kingston CF card.
Since you’re reading this, I would normally assume you know what the specifications of the equipment I’m putting up for sale are. If not, check out the links below:
-http://www.nikonusa.com/Nikon-Products/Product/Digital-SLR-Cameras/25444/D700.html, and
This same kit but without the 16 GB card goes on sale in Prague for CZK74,000. My bad was that I initially bought it from eBay US, and I ended up paying much more than that (because of the Czech taxes and customs), but I will not try to make up that money by selling it now over-priced, no.
From this total of CZK74,000 I will discount CZK1,750 from the camera and another CZK1,250 from the lens. Price I will sell for is then CZK71,000.
About camera:
I love photography, and I am a really enthusiastic enthusiast about it :-D. I am always over-protective with my photo-gear, and I always maintain it in its best of shapes.
- camera is in almost-new condition;
- doesn’t have signs of use;
- less than 10,000 actuations;
- always used a protective cover for the rear LCD, to keep it scratch-free;
- kept it and carried it around in a Lowepro camera bag, away from extreme temperatures, direct sun light, moisture or anything as such.
Lens now:
- excellent condition as well;
- also no signs of use;
- no scratches, no dust, and I always used a NC protective filter (which I will not include it in with the lens, since it is part of a three-filter-kit which I do not intend to sell)
PS: in case you want to see some of my work, check this link out. It is a slideshow of a gallery of 18 of my fav pictures. Just click the link and lay back for 50 seconds.
PS2: the Kingston card that I said I will give for free with the camera is sort of faulty. I would advise you to use it same as me: as a backup solution (due to the fact that it might fail on you), and not as your primary card.


man, it is too expensive even to be first hand ... good luck anyway.L

I know.. Nikon equipment doesn't come cheap, true. First hand is EVEN MORE expensive.

...I guess I could go like two or three thousands lower, but not more. I am still waiting for an offer..

According to web sites given above by you, total price would be $2700 + $1050 = $3750. Czech National bank says that $1 = 18.780 CZK. So brand new camera+objective would be $3750 x 18.780 CZK = 70425 CZK. Good luck with your offer. It is a second hand anyway. You should consider to expect around 50.000 CZK - 55.000 CZK. Not anymore.

Again, this is my point of view ..consider as well the d800 (only body) cost 65K .... :) 45 could be Ok

These prices that you spoke about are in the US... here is more expensive, due to import duties.

See how much it sells for in Prague: http://www.fotoskoda.cz/eobchod/nikon-d700-28-300-afs

My point is, I am in Prague as well...

PS: and the D800 doesn't sell for 65k. Not in here at least :(



:) goodluck

Can't believe this! Why Fotoskoda will sell it for CZK10,000 more??


I am speaking about the D800e, not the D800.
