    Thanks John ! I think I'll just leave them an appropriate feedback :)

    In the sellers defense, I went back and reviewed their images and sure enough, no body cap in the pictures. But, geez. Surely a camera store has one in stock ?

    I think it is highly unlikely they couldn't scrounge up a body cap, he, he...

    If it was wrapped originally it would have to have been unwrapped to take the auction pictures.

    Anywho, I'm still blown away with the lack of care/respect shown. Somebody is not doing their job with any enthusiasm.

    Ultimately it may have worked in my favor, there were only four bids and one of those was mine :)

    Selling the Vivitar grip it came with should cover the cost of the body cap, he, he...
    ............................

    Took a shot of the sky today and found 10 spots worth worrying about, three applications of the Eyelead and it's ready to play !

    Gotta disagree with you here... irrespective of whether the camera arrived with a body cap, it should have shipped with one. You can buy generic Nikon body caps for <$1.00/each on fleaBay, and as mentioned, what camera store doesn't have a BUCKET of them kicking around? Put one on, THEN wrap it in cling-film and send it, but if something had poked through the wrapping, Don would have had a Nikon-shaped paper-weight!

    This ^^^^^ is the important bit!!!!

    I could go on and on with disrespect of shipped items. .....

    Glad the camera survived and you were able to clean it.

    I was in the navy WAY to long to answer this.

    Don, enjoy the new camera. May it bring you many excellent image opportunities.

    Thanks for the comments and encouragement Everyone :)

    The camera seems to be working properly and I'm having a gas shooting one of my favorite subjects with a 27 year old AF 105mm f/2.8, there is something endearing about the sound of the focus working :)

    1/6", f/5, iso 1250 !

    We are finally out of the deep freeze so I hope to get out and about and play with my AF-P DX 10-20mm VR next.

    Cheers, Don
