645D for $8500

last night while browsing Frederick MD craiglist I saw a guy selling his mint (never used) 645D for $8500...

I think is a good deal for those who lust for it... good luck!

If you want to thank me you can send me a lens for saving you >$2000

8K5 investment without buying protection is very risky

Here's a link.

The person actually lists their location in Alexandria, which is about an hour south of Frederick (though I suppose that's not relevant if you live outside the area). I only mention it because I saw the same ad in the Washington DC craigslist a few days ago and was curious so I pulled them up. Same ad FWIW.

Too bad I really don't need such a machine. Well, that and I'd have to sell about half my glass just to buy the body

Half? I would have to sell all, and still be a bit short

Needless to say I've spend a little too much time hanging out in the marketplace here over the past 2 years

8k5 would be 8005. 8.5K is 8500.

Yes, I'm a pedant.

not a pedant...

...only wrong.

For example: A Seagate 7K2 series HD runs with 7200 rpm.

I've never seen it done that way. I would translate 7K2 as 7002. 7K, and then +2. How would you represent 7002 in this fashion?

I have been using it many times in the internet era. 7K2 means 7.200 K or 7.2000000 K because zeros at the back of a floating point is omitted. 7002 is 7K002

Silly, just use engineering notation which is well understood with no ambiguity, eg 7.2E3 and 8.5E3.

A good reason to avoid Seagate?

Yes, but many people read "7K" as "Seven Thousand" so appending the 2 on the end makes "7K2" "Seven Thousand Two." We've done this in the computer industry for "Office 2003" as "O2K3" and Windows Server 2008 as "Win2k8".

I don't doubt you meant 8500 by 8K5, it's just really weird, and counter-intuitive.

I think this notation is not official and needs some debates. However, it is easier to read if we put the next number after the floating point. If "7K2" is "Seven Thousand Two" how about "7k12345"? can we read "seven thousands twelve thousands three hundred and forty five"? In my term, we can read "seven point one two three four five thousand". The "." and "k" is compacted to single "k"

or you could just write 7002 or 7.12345 etc... Sounds like it would use a lot less energy in not over thinking it any further and just reverting to the tried and accepted way to write integers...

(I'm all for reinventing wheels dont get me wrong.. but usually I like the new wheel to be both more efficient and universally acceptable - not slightly 'square' on one or two sides )
