    I would’ve bought it if I didn’t have it already.

      How do you like your’s?

      • Fly Moon

        I really like it. However, it has few shortcomings that is not a deal breaker for a camera at that price.

      I bought one from south jersey. The seller call me advice me to buy the usa model because the chinese model do not have wifi. Then he was trying to sale me extended life battery for the camera. I have a feeling that the camera is fake. Any one with simmilar experience?

    I had one for a little bit… touch screen needs work but It’s definitely a plus. Ergonomics much improved over d5300 (deep grip like d750)

  • Would anyone seriously buy a Grey camera from Chinese sellers on ebay?
    I have bought them before and you are asking for trouble.
    Your far better off buy from a reputable seller in your own country.

    • Neopulse

      They’re located in New Jersey, not China

      • Ric

        even worse! 🙂

        • Neopulse

          LOL, you may have a point

      This is a US seller… and you are protected by ebay… However It’s safe to assume if there’s something wrong with the camera down the line… repairing (through the seller’s warranty) it would be a nightmare.

      • Fair enough. Im not from the US, so most of the stuff i see on ebay is from China.
        But still, you get a lot of sample variations with electronics, and it can be a major hassle, and time, trying to get small issues fixed. But if you feel confident, then go for it.

          It’s a gamble I guess…

        I would way rather have a USA Nikon. Over time you are going to need help with your camera. Nikon USA is Great to deal with. Grey market is very iffy.

      I bought my 24-120mm f/4 VR (excellent lens) on Ebay for only $700 (now as low as $550) and I never had issue with it.
      It retail for $1300 at B&H

      For $489 it could be worth the risk.

      Let’s say you own it a year and you knock it off a tripod and need to send it in to be checked out. (even though I know they won’t look at it in America)… it would be around $200 – I know because I knocked my camera over on a tripod about 2 years ago and sent it in and it was around $200 for check it out.

      After a year, the D5500 will be worth a fraction of what it is new, so you’re better off just getting a new camera vs trying to repair it.

      I don’t think there have been any reports of manufacturing issues like with the D750, D800 etc… so it should be relatively safe.

    Man, these recent Gray market deals are low enough to make the jump worthwhile. Recent deals for D810, D750 and now D5500 are top of their respective lines tech. Guess it will be a while before the D5, D820 , and D400 if they ever make this kind of a deal.

  • Danny Hernandez

    Shit! For that price I might as well pick one up for my beater camera.

    • T.I.M

      The one you wife can use ?

      • Danny Hernandez

        Haha yeah. how did you know?

  • Captain Megaton

    I wonder if Nikon will release D3500 soon, and how it would compare.

  • spicynujac

    That’s an amazing deal. Incredible sensor in all the top bodies for <$500. If my D750 wasn't less than a month old, I'd be all over this.
