    Those designs have only been around for three or four years and are all good sellers so I'd be very surprised if they were up for refresh already.

    That advice comes straight from Nikon USA's ultra-paranoid CYA product liability legal department.

    You can buy it new (gray market) for $120, so $100 is top dollar for used - unless it is absolutley mint with caps and hood I'd not go that high.
