    Congrats on the D100.

    Back in 2002 when that model was first released it cost $2000 without a lens. Here's hoping the one you got has some good life left in the shutter mechanism. You might want to check and make sure it has the v2.0 firmware upgrade so it can recognize more than 2GB on the larger memory cards. Also, be mindful the flash sync speed only goes up to 1/180.

    It's always nice to have another Nikon shooter on the boards.

    Post some pics when you can.:thumbup:

    7000 actuations is next to nothing for a D100. You're going to have a lot of fun with that one. :)

    For the record, any AF or AF-S Nikon lens will work just fine on your D100 -- whether new or old. Even if it's not AF, it will probably still work just fine, but you (of course) will have to focus manually, and may not get good metering.

    The 18-55 will work but that has been said.

    My D70 is creeping up to the 40,000 actuations and is still running strong, im sure the D100 could easily make it to 100,000 actuations but it is all about how well you take care of the camera. But don't baby it so much that you get afraid to take photos.

    i have had mine for some time now, and even when people say "when are you getting a real digital camera", i just smile and keep on shooting. It does everything i want and need to do at this point.

    enjoy it and take lots of wonderful images.

    7000 actuations on a D100 is a crime in itself. Go out and get shooting.
