cleaning house *UPDATED*

personallissa-anglin1 Comment

It's time for me to upgrade some equipment and so I'm doing a little house cleaning!

I'll be putting these items up on eBay June 20 (Sunday), but I thought I'd give my blog readers a chance to scoop them up before then, since I'm constantly being asked what type of equipment I recommend, AND I always recommend buying used.

Up for sale is a used Nikon D200. It's been my backup camera, so it hasn't seen near as much action as my main cameras. The shutter actuations read 79,700.

There are some small scratches above the shutter wheel and the cover for the lcd screen has a portion missing. Both of these are purely cosmetic and have nothing to do with the quality of image you will get from the camera.

It comes with the original box, camera strap, and User's Manual, Software discs, and Quick Start Guide. I am not including the EN-EL3e battery or charger or memory cards since I can still use these for my other cameras.

I'm asking 600.00. Here are some pictures-

Below you can see the portion of the lcd screen cover that is broken. The lcd is in perfect condition.

Here you can see the scratches above the shutter wheel.

Also up for sale is my Nikon Nikkor 17-35 wide angle lens. You can read the great reviews on it here. If you're looking to buy a wide angle lens, this is a great choice. It has a low aperture of 2.8, and the focal length is very versatile.

It comes with a custom fit case and front and back caps, plus the lens hood.

Price is 1400.00.





ALSO! Just a reminder- the deadline for my Summer Photo Contest is tomorrow! You have till midnight to send in your entries. I've received quite a few entries so far, and have totally enjoyed getting to see what people come up with. Email your image to



After much deliberation, I've decided to go for it and sell many of my much-loved lenses so that I can completely refresh my gear. Look out- there is some good stuff here!

Tamron 17-50mm 2.8. This was my first lens I purchased for my D200 and it was worth every penny. Great for portraits. It has a tiny scratch on the glass, but that hasn't stopped me from using it since it doesn't appear on the images. 275.00

You can see the scratch in the lower right hand side of the glass (looks like a white dot).

Tokina 12-24 wide angle. I WISH I could duplicate this lens for my full-frame camera- that's how much I like it. Perfect working condition. 450.00

Sigma 30mm. This baby has a low, low 1.4 aperture. I typically like to whip it out at a concert or reception- anywhere I'm getting low or dramatic light. Comes with a canvas carrying case. 275.00

It pains me to offer up this one- my Nikkor 14mm 2.8. When I'm shooting with this one, many people ask me if it is a fisheye lens. It isn't, but it is an ultra-wide angle, and typically gives me that spacial feeling I'm looking for. Beautiful lens. No box with this one. 1100.00.

And last but not least, a D200 grip. This will hold two extra batteries, and it also gives you a vertical shutter button. 100.00. If sold along with the D200 camera, I'll knock it down to 50.00.

Like I said, these will all be listed on eBay on Sunday, so if you are interested, please email me! I'll be happy to answer any questions.
