    Like New Nikon D70s DSLR
    Nikon Nikkor 18-70mm 1:3.5-4.5G ED Lens
    1GB Lexar Pro & 2GB Sandisk Ultra II CF Cards
    OEM Battery & Charger
    Lowepro Red Micro Trekker 200 Bag
    Assortment of 67mm Filters for 18-70mm Lens

    $550..

    I checked it out, its practically new, used like 3 times probably. I don't know much about high end cameras. Should it come with some sort of certificate/warranty/paperwork? What is it worth and should I look at anything else before I buy it? Thanks

    The d70s is about 3 years old. For $550, it isn't bad considering what you're getting with it.

    Its your call, I'd look for a used D80, they I'm sure you could find one for not a whole lot more, and its a much newer camera.

    Thats not a bad deal, but its not a steal either.

    the reservations people have are based strictly on the age of the technology on the camera.

    It's not a bad price, and not a bad camera. Just a little out-dated.

    For the price, it's not a bad deal at all.

    thanks for the responses, i dont need anything too fancy, just for my own fun so i won't need super high MP and stuff. im sure this camera has enough techno goodies to keep a noob like me satisfied for a while.
