Hello all, I have been taking photographs for about 4 years now, mostly landscapes when I go hiking. I have been using an Olympus 750 and I am now looking to upgrade to an SLR. A co-worker of mine has been practicing photography for some years now and has quite a bit of experience under his belt. He has offered to sell me his Nikon D100 and a 24-120mm lens to go along with it.
First of all, I am curious what I should expect to pay for a camera that is about 3 years old. I know he has taken good care of it and would not sell me anything that is broken.
2nd, would this be a good camera to start off with as compared to maybe a D50? I am pretty savy with learning electronics and I figure I could shoot in RAW format and then edit my mistakes if I dont have a complete grasp on the exposure.
3rd, any other comments or recommendations you all have for me would be greatly appriciated.
