“All my fellow photographers were saying "buy used", but..but... what if? Besides, you never want to own someone's lemon. But when the bug hit, and I knew I needed an upgrade, I started looking into the Nikon's latest and greatest. Well, honestly, $6000 was out of the question. But Adorama's Used Section online had a Nikon D4 rated E, and I thought, well with a 30 day return, a 90 day limited warranty, how bad could it be?
I am now a proud owner of a Nikon D4, the first 200 images just blew me away, the quality, the texture, the clarity, the speed, the ISO capabilities and still have clarity! WOW! I would have to put this thing under a microscope to even find a scratch, if there is one I don't see it.
My doubting days of buying used is laid to rest.
As for Customer Service, I initially planned on trading in my Nikon D800e, and I almost did, until the wife took an interest in Photography so we kept the old camera as well. They were most understanding, and truly encouraging in the decision making process.

“I guess I got lucky with 3rd party knock offs, purchased elsewhere, at least they lasted a year. Now they won't hold a charge. Charger says they're charged, but camera indicates batteries drained. Time for upgrade to real McCoys!”
“I initially had reservations of ordering sight unseen or online, especially with a sizable investment. But once my Martin 000-42 was received all my fears were relieved. Maurys did a fantastic job, their response time to my orders were beyond reproach. I most strongly recommend this merchant to others.”
