Ummmm, you do not need $3,000. Just go to Ebay.
Speaking of Ebay, I bought a 128mb cf card for my D30 on there. It was only $50 compared to buying it (Lexar brand) in a local store for $100. It arrived in a mailing bag inside of a ziplok baggie. Looked new. Yes, it does work. but I'm thinking to myself, with this one and all the other cf cards for sale on ebay, where do these people get this stuff? I'm thinking someone may have shoplifted them out of WalMart or something. How can you find yourself with an "extra" cf card that you need to sell?
Kinda makes ya wonder.
But as for the camera, I bought it off a fella who does photographic work and bought a D60 because he needs the extra quality. You can definitely get good deals on ebay.
