    Generally, if it's too good to be true, then it's too good to be true.

    And, I think that's the case here.

    I wouldn't say it's too good to be true, but I would defiantly take a good hard look at that camera, since it usually runs about $4000 used!

    Call them, ask them where they are located, and if items can be picked up in person. I think I know what the answer will be.

    They're selling the D70 kit lens (a DX lens) with the D3? :confused: Walk away. Walk far, far away from this.

    Edited to add:

    (This was just the first one I grabbed - there are lots more examples)

    lol, i'm not buying a d3 in the near future. I just googled it for ha-has... and it's a shame it's the first link to show up as a search result for "nikon d3"... it's even a sponsored link.

    maybe i'll call them just to give them a hard time. :lol:

    For that price you could sell the D3 and the parts and buy whatever you wanted just from the profit. :D

    I still think it's not a complete rip off. What happens if you don't go for the up-spec package?


    Even the quote Iron posted said: "I did save about $100 dollars a near as I can figure...".

    So he got the camera (although took the bait) and saved money. Hmmm...

    I'm tempted to order it just to find out.

    Definitely a scam. Have a look here for reports by people who bought from them.
