Summary: I was looking for a digital camera that would accept and work with all the great Nikon lenses I've accumulated over the past 40 years. I've used film in environments ranging from 120 deg. F and 95% humidity to -30 deg. F in, sandstorms, monsoons and from sea-level to 17,000 ft. I wanted a digital that would hold up like my F3 and F4 did. After reading hour upon hour of reviews and tests I boiled it down to what do I need vs. features that while very neat I may never use.
Great value. Thanks to the previous owner's diligent care.

Summary: This is a great camera and a great eBay buy for me. I'm nearly retired, but I wanted a pro Nikon digital camera to take along with my pro Nikon F4s and F5 film cameras during my post-retirement travels. I've used Nikon for over 23 years - 14 of those years professionally. As a photojournalist for a local newspaper, I was introduced to Nikon digital using the D1.
Summary: I had three D1X before D2X... battery life of the D1Xs was terrible, although I loved the results coming out of them, I couldn't trust for my sessions trusting the batteries... which. I also purchased brand new. My purchase from Amazon was as always, very easy and quick. Camera I received was much better than I ever thought for the price... very well maintained, and only 25K original shutter count.
Summary: Needed a backup SLR and I had some old Nikkor lenses, so I decided to try out this refurb D2X. It seemed like a good deal for a one-time flagship. I was surprised to see what good condition it was in for a camera this old. Everything works like new as far as I'm concerned. I just wish it full-frame. But I don't want to spend that kind of money yet. Overall, very happy with this purchase.
Summary: A person may think, why buy older tech, when the new stuff can blow this away with its spec's. Well, its because this is still a very good camera. Lets face it, camera bodies don't hold value, lenses do. So getting a chance to shoot with a great camera at the fraction of the price of new is intriguing to say the least. Been very happy with its performance, great image quality. To sum up, I would do it again!
Summary: Fabulous photographic experience. Sure, my D5100 can take marginally better photos, but the D2X exudes quality and is just plain more fun and rewarding to use and carry around. With its current (low) price, a good D2X offers the most bang for the buck in all of digital photography. Find a good one and buy it, you won't be disappointed.
Summary: Purchased as a backup to another D2X SLR 12.4 that had some circuitry go bad. The internal mirrors were filthy; & the shutter release stuck quite badly. The 1st picture taken during each shoot, returned an "error" message. Once my primary camera came back from repair, I brought this one in to have it cleaned & to have the shutter release action taken care of.
Summary: This camera is GREAT! I had a Nikon d2h and the d2x out perform its predecessor with amazing results! The photos are clear and clean and it is very user-friendly. If you are looking for a true professional DSLR with 12.4 mega-pixels but you don't want to spend a arm or a leg, this is the camera for you! Eventually I will upgrade to a d3x or d4 but for the time being my d2x is good enough for me!
