    Found someone that lives about 30min away from me that's selling a D100 with 60mm 2.8 D AF lens for $200. I have a D40x and have been wanting to upgrade to something that will AF with more of my lenses, but I'm not in a position to spend a lot of cash.

    Should I buy the D100? :noes:

    *edit* I could probably sell my D40x for more than the price of the D100 w/ lens, but would I be sacrificing much by going with an older model like the D100?

    I don't think its been made for awhile :hs: I believe it was the predecessor to the D200, which came before the D300 (but I could be wrong on that).

    good cam but pretty noisy if you're going to be using anything above 400ISO

    Well shit. The ad was posted sometime in the last 20 minutes and the damn thing sold already. I'm hoping the first buyer falls through so I can at least go try it out and see if I like it :hs:

    that's kind of what I was thinking...the guy said he'd let me know if the first buyer falls through, I kind of want to offer him $225 cash right now if he'll sell it to me :rofl: :o
