I feel sorry for Nikon owners.
It doesn't matter what model they buy, even when first released, as a few months down the track, Nikon will bring out a new and improved version of it making your current model obsolete and now worth substantially less than it cost you. Remember the D600 then the 610?
Canon does hang onto models much longer, and hence they have better re-sale value later on as say, after 3 years, your Canon may be just superseded, but if you had an equivalent Nikon, it would be 3 models old and practically worthless.
I'm not saying that Nikon cameras are no good, in fact, they are very good indeed, but constant model updates is not how you keep up the perceived and resale value of products.
It also makes it more difficult regarding spare parts too, as many models mean lots of parts and distributors only have so much space and money for parts.
I feel sorry for people who buy cameras based on how much they can sell them for.
If your camera is in good enough condition to be sold as "mint" or "near mint" condition then you obviously haven't used it very much.
dilbert, i am one of those who like to keep my camera near mint, including my test camera (not for resale value, but i have been trained to use stuff that way since i was a kid). i have been used dslr not too long ago, about a little more than 2 years and half, but all of them are not near mint, but MINT. and i am, here in this topic, to let you have a chance to prove that your images are better than my images. and i will prove you wrong...
