Trade SLCD Rack for Nikon DSLR - 08/26/06 08:12 PM

I've got a medically imposed climbing hiatus for around a year. As much as I like my gear I'd rather have something I can enjoy over that time.

I'm looking for ONLY the following models (current real values): D200 ($1700), D1X (~$500), D100 ($500 w/vert grip), Preference in that order. The camera should be in mint condition and lightly used.

What I have to trade is a fairly complete cam rack. Mostly camalots in the large sizes, aliens and tcu's for the small to mid stuff. I have a few additional Friends and Rock Empires in larger sizes or mid sizes. Some stuff overlaps.

I figure the full value of the rack on Ebay is about $900-1200. With the PITA Ebay factor I'd rather do a straight up trade. I'll work with you on a fair trade for any of the above bodies. I'm also interested in big telephoto glass. f2.8. So a D1X and a fast 200mm would be something that interest me.

Thanks for looking.

This is one of the most unique and innovative FS posts I've ever seen here. Good luck, both in the trade and medically.

yeah that might just happen. more realistically you might want to ask for a coolpix 5200.

So 20 cams for a $500-700 camera (i'm not counting on a D200) isn't realistic? Maybe not. One thing to remember is cams retain value a lot longer then a Dcam.

Or option B just sell the rack for like $2000 on Ebay and buy a brand spanking new D200 with warranty. As I said, pain in the ass between listing and giving Ebay my hard earned dollars. Just hoping someone was sitting around with a model above saying, Geez, love the camera but need a rack. If you haven't looked at Ebay in a while I encourage you to take a look. Used gear for no apparent reason sells for retail and sometimes more. I don't get it either.

20 cams for $2000 would be quite a bit more than retail.

Typical prices for used cams on Ebay are in the $15-30 range, higher for Camalots >size 4.
