I found a package for a Nikon D40 that was bought in November and hardly used. Here is what comes in this kit.

The lens model is: Nikon DX, AF-S nikkor 55-200mm 1:4-5.6G ED

The other lens is: Nikon DX, AF-S NIKOR 18-55mm 1:3 - 5.6G II

Like i said, i will include the case, the extra battery and all the boxes and paperwork.

I Can get this for $450.

What do you think?

Thanks,
Frank

Not a bad pricek but what kind of guarantee do you have?? You could pick up a used D40 with the 18-55 for $349 from B&H, and add a used 55-200 for $129. It's $30 more, but will come with some guarantee, which I think is important when buying used equipment. I'm not a huge fan of buying used bodies...bodies depreciate in value, and are more prone to problems over time. Lenses hold their value well, and can be used longer into the future.

I don't know if this will help, but there was some discussion in the SlickDeals forum when this package was available new in early April. http://forums.slickdeals.net/showthr...&t=1279209

I just found out that the 200mm lens is VR.

Here's a listing for a used D40 kit:

If you browse through the used lenses, you'll see a 55-200mm for $129

They've got a VR version for more.
