One point I think he missed is that this dealer, although probably
not one of the best, is far from the worst. The camera doesn't even
sound like it was refurbished. It sounds "used" (a scratch, worn
label, no Nikon box). But with no complaint about missing items,
such as manual, batteries, etc. it sounds like he got a camera in
good working condition with more than one would expect when buying
from eBay. And also at a very good price ($140 plus S&H), based on
what you found:
