    at various speeds shutter and mirror don't work right most of the time
    push button
    A. normal operation
    B. noise
    C. mirror goes up
    D. mirror goes down
    E. Err blinks
    it's like playing japanese roulette :mad:
    it sounds sick compared to the sweet sounding N8008s, lots of whine

    btw, just got this body, it's other issues internal LCD broke, mirror housing cracked

    Will the seller take it back? Just guessing but the repair costs may be way more than another body would cost. These don't have much resale value, but repairs are high.

    Correction: These are cheaper than I thought. Walk away from it. http://cgi.ebay.com/Nikon-N8008-35m...ViewItemQQptZFilm_Cameras?hash=item518fc9e27f is a N8008 that sold for $31 with a 30 day warranty. Shipping $9. You would waste money sending your broken one back to the seller.

    shipping cost more than everything else :smile:

    auction

    and he forgot to mention mf-21 databack, extra finders, etc.

    haven't found anything wrong with the N8008s

    not bad for $ 10.50 + $ 10.70 shipping priority
