Thread: D700 price cut?

  1. #41

    Default Re: D700 price cut?

    So what is the best street price of the D700? I asked a popular shop and was told just slightly above $3K. Just wondering if it will drop any further before I pull the trigger.

    The way I see it, you are already waiting, no harm waiting till 22 March then make a better informed decision. The price will not likely go up for the D700, so odds are, it maintains or drops. IF the price of D800 is too high for most people, then they will get the D700. If the price is low, then most will not bother with D700 and go straight to D800. So why the agony?

    It's decision making, no agony. Why wait till 22nd March? Does Nikon adjust the price only when the new body is launched?

    Maybe, maybe not. Maybe it's not even Nikon itself adjusting the price. Some shops may wanna push thr sales of older products before no one wants it anymore. Though this shouldn't happen for D700, but D3x is a hohohoho.... old timer with overpriced price tag.l

    Well, that does not count as price drop then? In that case, you shouldn't say that price has dropped. That would send some people on an unnecessary wild goose chase.

    Even so, the price across the border is much cheaper than that, brand new, btw...

    you shouldn't spread such baseless information in ClubSnap. it is very misleading.

    if you think that it is funny and worth a laugh as members here go on your 'enjoy chasing goose', pls go elsewhere and take your brand of humour with you.


    please share only as relevant and accurate an information with members here as possible.

    no hard feelings.


    just that we should all strive towards a better informed and helpful forum instead of misleading other members with half-truths and false information.

    all CSers have a part to play to make this forum more informative and educational for all members.

    This kind of reply, this kind of bogus messages. I'd seen many coming from very few individual. One after another, but nvr together in the same period. I've not been here long enough to know before 2010, but I had seen the same tone, same habit under 4 different names. Once I seen his first few post I will ignore Liao. Let's get back to topic.

    I doubt sg will face a drop in D700 price until D800 is readily available in the market. If u need one now, u try try ur luck in BnS or 2nd hand store. If u have contacts, JB sources might have but very limited. I miss a deal last weekend but lucky durian drop on me (metaphorically). A bro sold me his 3yr old D700 at a unbelievable price.
