If I was just starting out in photography, I would likely be swayed with that price to join the Nikon camp. To bad Canon doesn't have a cheaper option other than the 6d.

Oddly why so many refurbs? Was there ever a fix for this cameras sensor issue being overly dirty?

Looks like Nikon pushed all these returns out the door as refurbished.
at a very low price. I doubt if all the shutters were repalced (still not a sure fix); at most they probably only cleaned the sensors. If it was only a question of cleanng the sensor once in a while; this would not be an issue. From my research it seems you can clean the sensor and go out for a shoot and come back with oil spotted sensor images that same day. Too bad; the dynamic range on this unit is amazing.

Canon isn't doing much better with the very pricey 1D-X. Lots of problems with them as well.

Just to re-iterate, purchase this camera with caution. It is known to have the dirty oil on sensor issue after some use. From what I've read (because I was initially very interested in this camera), you can send it back in to Nikon but it's not a permanent solution, just a clean. Would love to be proven wrong, though.

Even with the price, I'd stick with my Canon. Just because I know how Canon treats their refurbs and the experience my cousin had to go through when he had an issue with his 85mm lens.

dirty sensor is a real issue and annoying as hell as witnessed by my brother which I advised to buy a Canon before :)


Fuji XE-1, Zeiss ikon, Hasselblad; I love shooting film as a conceptual idea :)
