D70 + 18-70mm lens

I found a D70 with 18-70mm Nikkor lens for $500 on Craigslist this morning. I emailed the guy, offered him $430, heard back quickly and called him. Including a bag, battery, 2GB Ultra II CF card, some chargers and he threw in a USB CF reader.

The lens was scratched so I offered just $200 for the body. He asked how much for the whole deal including the scratched lens. $375. Deal.

I’m happy with the deal. According to Exif data from a pic I took, the D70 has about 7700 shutter actuations on it. Not bad — according to a D40 pic from about a month ago, my D40 has 18752 shutter actuations — and I’ve only had it since February this year (2007).
