View Full Version : (SOLD) Less of me. . . .More of Her - Nikor D5100 + Accessories For Sale = $800.00

05-30-2012, 09:13 AM
So...long story short....my wife resigned from her pastoral job 2 days after the meet. Had nothing to do with the meet. She loves working with kids, but could not see eye to eye with male leadership...in the church, who would rather her sit idly by and keep her mouth shut. Had one fella tell me I needed to "Shepard my wife better". Whatever. She's Spanish and I'm not getting my ass kicked for anyone...hehe, j/k

So....in a nutshell....the Macbook she was using for her Masters Degree, had to be given back to the church. I will use whatever money I get from this sale...to put a big smile on her face, with a Macbook. Anyway...that's my plan. I am very proud of her, with MS, for all that she does, and want to reward/embrace her efforts with this.

In another turn of events....my camera sits there many days, and is something I haven't learned to use in 8 months. Do I really need it? No. Do I love taking pictures? Sure.

We'll see how it goes.

Marcus, Casey, Seth, William, anyone else want to chime in on a fair price, please PM me. Starting price is in the thread title.

Make me an offer via PM.

Thanks for looking guys.

I'm spoiled with my BMW, house, wife/kids, and you guys. Time to hook her up!

I believe this an excellent opportunity for someone to get into photography. I really love the camera, and will eventually pick it up again, when the wife starts working again, next school year (Teaching 5th grade). Everything on the receipt is included (D5100, kit lens, 70-300mm zoom lense, tripod, Sony Memory stick, and Nikon remote), plus a $200.00 Lowepro camera bag (not on receipt)

Sorry for rambling.....;o/


1. Nikon D5100

2. Nikon 18mm-55mm kit lens

3. Nikon 70mm-300 Nikon zoom lense

4. Nikon remote

5. QSX Tripod

6. Lowepro camera bag


The day I bought it. Bag pictured is not included.

This is the bag...included with the sale.

Good luck with this sale.

Hats off to you for not "shepherding your wife better". :facepalm people.

Hope this goes quickly so you can hook her up!

05-30-2012, 09:31 AM
My mom is Cuban, and I cannot imagine anyone "shepherding" her....on the other hand, as long as it was not me, I would like to see them try.

Are you keeping the camera package all together, or would you sell the body without the lenses?

Best of luck!

05-30-2012, 09:54 AM
Well...I was hoping to get rid of it all, as the lenses won't do me much good otherwise. I am open to idea's though. Spose if the offer was right on the body...I would let it go.

They could be used as monoculars. <---- apparently that is indeed a word.

You're paying me more than what I asked. When do you leave? It sure would be nice if you had it..for your trip..but more than likely, you wouldn't be able to have a camera anyways.

Lemme know Chuck.

Yeah Dane....can't have a camera inside a sub, but you know that...:) That's why I texted you...:) You do so much for everyone and after reading your story....I wanted to make you that offer :thumbsup

05-30-2012, 03:05 PM
Dane..............What can I say, you do the awesome stuff for your family and ours! Thank You!

05-30-2012, 05:59 PM
Awesome deal, wish I were on earlier because I would have jumped on this.

05-30-2012, 06:11 PM

My heart kind of jumped reading this thread.

05-31-2012, 04:25 PM
Good deal, Charlie. I would have picked up the camera bag from you separately, DW. I am always looking for bags to carry my gear. Regardless, good sale.

05-31-2012, 04:32 PM
thanks Boss! :) I'm happy that I got to this first :thumbsup Looking forward to getting this kit from Dane when I get back from my trip :biggrin

Since I don't have a camera bag, this is a huge bonus for me...:biggrin

I think a road trip is in order.....:) Which car should I bring this time Dane???
