Id be pretty suspicious of second hand D7000's already. I havent seen any come through any of the UKs reputable dealers (not that I check much)

If you wait another 6 months or so, you may start seeing refurbished web-only offers - or the odd demo on sale.

The point is Lalo, the D7000 is too new to be on the used markets. Nobody is going to have shot 150,000 shots with one. The chances if you have seen one is that it is either a refurb, or ex demo, or stolen model etc

Have a check done by Nikon, I bet the store shouldnt be hasitative on giving you the serial number. Or ask the store for the history of the cam. Second hand (used) D7000 seems too early to be trustworthy. Refurbished sounds more possible.

Agreed, I don't know why anybody would already be selling it. It's a brand new camera! As Wout said, ask the store for the details. The serial number, the camera's history, etc. For now, the shutter actuations shouldn't matter. It wouldn't be more than a couple thousand.
