Good decision. I recently purchased a D4 with 318K shutter counts. Rated for 40K. Seller was a camera store person. He assured me that the ratings are very conservative and even if it needed shutter repair it was not expensive. I am 71 and figure we (camera and I) are at about the same percentage of useful life left. I have a D500 and Df so this will not be my primary camera. It is in very good physical condition and price was reasonable. I wanted to see what handling a professional camera body was like and to have another FX body. I do not worry about haveing so many cameras at my age because my 13 year old Grandson is a very good photographer and he will one day use all of this. Wishing you good health and great photos.

Well so far apart from a little mist /defused around the very edges of the view finder, I cannot seem to fault I'd my cf card has finally arrived and I shall be testing in earnest,a sample of the results I shall post.
I,m looking to see the diffence in fx over dx which may mainly turn out to be the extra captured area !?

In recent months I had the realisation that three of my school mates had passed away,suddenly life just became too short for I wish I had, on my death bed !
So having previously said I,m sticking with my DX NIKON D7100 and I am,not parting with it !
I have also gone out and dipped my toe finally into the FX pond !

Bought a NIKON D700"old yes, 109'000 clicks yes, built like a tank and heavy,but for the £260 it cost me to get it in my hands,don't think I did too badly ?

Just awaiting my ordered cf card to arrive and I shall be testing,testing,meanwhile every you tube d700 video is being watched in preparation.

Photographs to follow and my views on this ere FX finally.

No worries. I have an 80-200 also and was considering buying a Kenko TC. I knew you had a Kenko (from a previous post) and thought maybe you had used it for this picture. I'm curious to know how it affects image quality on the 80-200.


I will when I have time attach the Kenko and take again from same point

I thought you had the Nikon 80-200 f/2.8? Was this taken with the Kenko teleconverter?


My bad it Is 80-200 f2.8 and no converter it was shot at 200 mm equal approximately 450 mm but cropped to give view you see, quite a bit cropped too,from memory what you see about a third of original frame view.

Thank,you all,itsmobviously NOT just me then that's not doing very well,I feel a bit better knowing that,I didn't want a perfectnas new finish just back to black rather than the steel looking colour under a few very deep scratches ,I will live with it the best I can get it,not so obvious and I drought anyonemwill,inspect,close up,plus I need not worry if there s a bit of rain on bare metal.

You got me curious. I’m a canon shooter and the finish on their lenses is a black wrinkle. Amazon has various black wrinkle spray paints. As to exact shade - who knows. The best I could suggest is spraying some in cup and use a artist brush to touch up the scratches.


Thanks To all for your input,especially Dave for this,might give it a go.Graham

Tried matte black which don't match when dry,gloss is too shiny when dry,just cannot get the Finnish as the rest of the unscratched parts of the barrel.
Any ideas ?

Heavy crop of this taken at 200 mm 35 equivalent 380 mm over a mile away from home. Not to bad ?
