D800 Body Sigma 24-70

Nikon D800 body and Sigma 24-70 f2.8 lens

I’m selling my D800 body to make room (and some cash!) to buy a D850. Apart from lust, the main reason I want to change is so both my Nikons have similar characteristics – for instance, the button to change ISO will be in the same place. At my age, the less I have to think about when I’m taking photos, the better the result. I’m also considering upgrading my 24-70 lens for similar reasons, although this time the limiting factor will be my ability to see what is in focus – I will want to trust the camera and lens to hit focus accurately and fast, every time, and while this is a great lens optically, switching to manual focus for fine tuning is a bit clunky.

Neither of these problems is insurmountable, so I won’t be entertaining low-ball offers!

Nikon D800 body has been sold

This body gets used when I want to have plenty of pixels to play with, either to make a large high-res image, or because I’m taking action shots and I won’t know exactly which parts of the image the action will be in. Shoot first and ask questions later! For example, small birds which aren’t predictable in their movements. As a result, the shutter count is a very low 6,599 (it’s good for 200,000!) This is an excellent full-frame camera that makes images up to 7,360 x 4,912 pixels in size. Just about any Nikon F mount lens will work on it, and the large screen makes checking your images a breeze, especially when you zoom in to see the tiniest details. Video or still images can be previewed on the back screen – especially useful for tripod shots. This is one of the last models which still has a pop-up flash, which creates a surprising amount of light, and can act as a master for Advanced Wireless Lighting with auxiliary Nikon flash units.

Full specs on the Nikon site.

The camera is in excellent shape – no scratches, no wear marks, and no issues mechanically. Box and all original accessories are included. The strap and battery charger cable are unused. I’m asking $1,300 CDN. In person, cash transaction only, in or near Oakville, ON.

Sigma 24-70 mm  DG EX f2.8 Zoom lens

This is not the current Sigma model, but it is a fine lens, built in Japan, that maintains a maximum f2.8 throughout the zoom range and allows for wonderful selective focus shots with beautiful bokeh in the out-of-focus parts. Some wear on the rubber zoom and focus rings, no problems optically and mechanically. I’m asking $450 CDN, when purchased in conjunction with the D800. In person cash transaction only, in or near Oakville, ON.
