Well, after a lame attempt by someone trying to pull the Nigerian scam on me, I've relisted the camera.

Unfortunately, I may be out the $25 it cost to list it the first time. Still haven't heard if ebay will credit my account, but they should.

Click on "my ebay" link to see the details. I have a low reserve of $450 for the camera body. Honestly a steal for this nice of an SLR.

What did they do?

They selected Buy It Now and then sent me a fake PayPal email almost 2 days later while not replying to any of my emails. They then unregistered with ebay and asked that I send the camera to an address in Nigeria. They were registered with ebay UK. All of this even though I indicated that I would not ship internationally.

This is why I will only sell to USA and Canada.

Yep, I posted that, but they ignored it. I have now blocked anyone from outside the US from bidding.

Sorry Rush, not good enough of an offer. Maybe $400, but the current minimum I'll take is $450.

There are currently 6 "watchers" on ebay and already 62 page views. I have a feeling it will sell for at least $500.

It pays to put up $19 to be a featured item.

Rush,

Will do...

BU1321,

Thanks for the offer, but it'll be okay without that.

Rush,

There are two bidders. Are you one of them?

a friend of mine had the nigeria scam pulled on him. one thing he did to combat that was to upgrade his account so that if someone selects "buy it now" they are immediately required to enter their payment info. if they don't do it, the item stays listed and you aren't charged anything.

I noticed that psi. That's exactly what I did on this item.

One more thing. My shipping was meant to be $25, not $35. Now that there are bidders I can't change it. The $25 includes priority mail, insurance, and a signature required to protect both the seller and buyer. If I were to sell it to anyone on baylorfans, the shipping could be considerably less. Just FYI.

Rush, your $300 has already been outbid.

Well, the reserve of $450 is almost reached and there's one day left in the auction.

Forgive my ignorance, but what is the "LCD clear plastic piece" that is missing? Does Nikon carry both parts?

I own the D50. I'm happy with it, but, my dad is looking for a body-only.

The clear plastic piece clips in over the LCD. To me it only makes the image harder to see. I like it without it personally.

It's less than $10 here: http://item.express.ebay.com/Cameras-Photo_Digital-Cameras-Accessories_Digital-Camera-Accessories_LCD-Monitor-Screen-Cover-for-Nikon-D100-Digi-Cam-BM-2_W0QQitemZ320041316695QQihZ011QQptdnZDigitalQ20Ca meraQ20AccessoriesQQddnZCamerasQ20Q26Q20PhotoQQadn ZDigitalQ20CamerasQ20Q26Q20AccessoriesQQcmdZExpres sItem

The eyepiece is also called the eyecup. Part # DK-10 and it's about $10 online as well.

Well, it sold for $450...they got a heck of a deal.

I'll be buying a Canon Rebel XTi now...
