To save folks the inevitable it’s cheaper at XXX.com, please note, those are grey market cameras that are imports that you can not get repaired by Nikon.
This is about $70 cheaper than anywhere else I was able to find online that had a warranty. (It’s ~$446 everywhere else for this model)
Woot had this a week or two ago, and I bought it then.
This is about to be 2 generations old…
So? I still use my D300 (semi-pro body) as my main Digital SLR, and I find no need to upgrade. The D3200, as an example, has a better image quality overall, but the D300 has better: build, AF performance, speed, buffer size, control system and, arguably (depending on your chosen glass), balance. Upper limit on ISO is a little irritating as well, but the point is, it’s still a great camera body after all these years.
If you’re a good photographer, you don’t need the absolute bleeding edge and the most pixels. You’ll get fantastic results with quality equipment regardless.
I still have my old Nikon FE-2 and an old Canon AE-1 Program. Getting the film developed (or getting darkroom time) can be problematic, but boy, are they fun to shoot with and give great results.
This is a good deal on this amateur/beginner camera body. If you enjoy photography, go for it.
I definitely agree with this. I would also add that this would be a great camera to take if you were going on vacation somewhere. You would be bummed if it got stolen, but not nearly as upset as if you paid $2000 for the latest and greatest. I have an old D80 that I use all the time still, and I am still as happy with it as the day I bought it.
I just bought one. Yesterday I was asked to shoot some photos at work, so last night I when looking for my D700 and lens, I could not find them, after an hour I called a friend and I had left the case in Mexico, so I did 150 miles last night and this morning to get my D700 and get back to work. I was thinking that next time WOOt had one, I would pick it up, so I will now have a second body/lens.
Yes, the 3200 is now a D700, but I can do 98% of the stuff, just not use all the old lens
