Summary: Bought this fella in 2014, The first thing I have to say is... Outstanding performance! I didn't expect much since the D2x is about 10 years old already. It is way better than my Nikon D5000 that I bought in 2009-even the D2x felt like going back in time, it is a HUGE upgrade from the D5000. Fast and accurate autofocus.
This camera is an amazing hunk of technological marvelousness!

Summary: This camera is an amazing hunk of technological marvelousness. And it's a lot of fun too. Pick one up and slip on a good lens and enjoy it. There's a lot of life left in this camera and the creative possibilities are endless. I've been using a D300 for several years and still do. Yet I find when shooting with the D2x I pay a lot more attention to what really matters in photography - composition, exposure, subject, etc.
Summary: The Nikon D2X is a professional camera that offers great picture quality and structural build that is better than all but other profession cameras such as the D3 or D4. It is true that it does not have all the latest features such as video and exceptional low light performance, Video wasn't that important to me. Better light sensitivity would be nice, but not that important to me either.
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: 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.
