    Gone already.

    I suppose the unboxing video will be that much shorter.

  • JG

    What does unboxed mean exactly, returned within 30 days of purchase? Why would it be unboxed if not used? I would rather pay full price and avoid the risk.

    • T.I.M

      If it come with a warranty there is no risk.
      Half of the lenses I bought were used (in like new condition) and the only D800 I have left is also used.
      I don’t know if I’m specially lucky but I NEVER had issues with my used Nikon cameras/lenses.
      Here is a picture I took with the USED Nikon Reflex 500mm f/8 mirror that I got 2 weeks ago ($510 with shipping, new condition).

    The whole concept of “open box” is odd when applied to Nikon products. In my experience, the boxes are not sealed, so it would impossible for anyone to determine that it had been opened by the retailer or anyone else. I went to the web site of a large photographic retailer in Canada, and their site says “What is Open Box? The box has been opened, likely for an in-store demonstration or display. Product may have signs of use but is in perfect working order and comes with the manufacturer’s original warranty. While in most cases original contents of the box such as straps and cables are included, exceptions may occur.”

    So “open box” for a camera really means that it has been used for demo purposes in the store. Therefore, the shutter count would be more than a few frames, and might be in the hundreds. Someone purchasing a “new” camera and noticing a high shutter count might well protest to the dealer, and possibly Nikon as well. So saying it is open box avoids that situation. Of course, there is no way of knowing whether a lens or flash unit that looks pristine has been used for demo purposes in a retail store. Hmmm…

      When I was stationed in the UK for a bit, I needed a new D3 body after teaching my old one how to swim (and failed). The store I went to had only one ‘new’ in stock, but when I opened it, the battery was IN the camera and there were big fat finger and nose prints on the LCD. Still kept insisting it was brand new and never opened. Turns out they used hairdryers to open and re-seal the boxes. I would be a total bitch if I told you who the retailer was, it was Jessops.

  • Meanwhile here in Dubai, Nikon D5 at $5,444.65 Brand new. Too bad no money 🙁

    • T.I.M

      I wonder if the D5 cameras sold at Dubai have X-ray & infra-red features that can take pictures of ladies totally covered.

      • TheInconvenientRuth

        No, they still use a Sony DSC 707 for that.

      • LOL
        I always laugh at people like you who just rely on mainstream media’s info regarding arab countries and places. Not every desert is Saudi.

        We just respect and don’t mind the locals who are covered up here. That’s the way they want to wear.

        • T.I.M

          Do they really have the choice ?

          • Not everyone. It depends where they are from.
            Living here for a couple of years enlightened my understanding of their culture, the Islamic culture.
            Though most are unusual for us, they do have a reason behind everything, some do make sense, some doesn’t.

            We can’t tell the world to be like the Western people does their daily lives. That would be plainly boring. The different culture and practices is the reason why it is still interesting to live.

            I will assume you are from USA, I get it, you love the freedom and see it as a blessing to be spread around the world. But if you go here, women have rights as well. And here, it’s amazing how much respect women get compared to anywhere else I went.

            Don’t stereotype, don’t judge. Know them.

            • T.I.M

              A agree with you but they don’t have the right to kill thousands people all over the world (especially in Europe).
              You like muslim laws and culture, stay in a muslim country.
              It’s that simple.
              We often go visit St Augustine in Florida, today for the first time, I did not feel safe.

            • I didn’t say I like them neither I hate them. And here we go again with the stereotype. Not all muslims are terrorists. Not all non muslims are a hero either.
              The UAE is even allies with the USA. They even assisted on the assault towards ISIS.

              I live here because I work here. That simple.

              “they don’t have the right to kill thousands people all over the world”. That right is reserved for America.

            • T.I.M

              I’m talking about civilians, the guy in Nice killed 85 civilians on July 14th (including 15 of his Muslim brothers).
              Nothing in the world can justify that.

            • EyeBin Yerkinoff

              Don’t throw stones when you live in a glass house.

              US air strike killed nearly 60 civilians, including children, in Syria on last month after the coalition mistook them for Islamic State fighters.
              How many innocent women and children do US drone strikes kill daily?

              “Nothing in the world can justify that.”

        Why ? There is a reason why they are covered up !lol
