How much did you guys (or gals) pay for your D700/D800/D800E?

I'm curious how the prices compare depending on the country, location, date, & seller.

It seems like Nikon cameras hold value better than Canon from what I've seen so far. $-)

    I bought my D800 for $2,800 yesterday. Northern Cali. Bought from B&H so no sales tax. \m/

    Buying it in Denmark, and then getting the sales tax refunded because I export to Greenland (non-EU), the D800 cost me USD2,500. That was the list price, but I got a better deal because I also got the 14-24mm, the 24-70mm, and the 80-400mm to go with it:)

    I know it sounds crazy, but electronics etc. are actually cheaper in Denmark, IF you can get the VAT reimbursed, by exporting to a non-EU country...

    U.S.A, California I paid $3000 + tax I think June of 2012 at Bestbuy. It's been a great Camera. No problems but me. Wife got it for me as a retirement gift. Now if I can only get a $1000 more from her I would have enough for a 80-400mm. If it's what you need and you want it you pay whatever amount it costs or save till you can and maybe the price has dropped by then.

    $1200 on eBay, but at 110,000 actuations I thought it was a good price. I needed a fullframe but cannot afford the D4 and will not get the the D600 so it was a good low cost option.

    D800 $2160 from Nikon, refurbished

    D700 $2100 (new with trade in on an older camera)
    D800 $2300. It was lightly used by someone who felt totally overwhelmed by it. Purchased from a local dealer. Only 320 actions on the shutter. I thought about getting a refurbished unit, but they are going for about $2600 in Canada (might as well go for a new one at that price IMO).
    If I take a good photo it's not my camera's fault.

    Paid $3200 new for the "E" version in Canada last March. None of the dealers were willing to discount further, but one offered to include an extra Nikon battery, a no-name memory card (which I never use), and a 3rd party extended warranty (which is rather worthless). It was the same price at B&H so I bit the bullet.

    I noticed the "E" version is still priced around $3200 today so I'm glad I didn't wait for a price drop.

    I picked up my D800 for full retail. Ordered it in Feb. a week or so after it was announced from Adorama and it showed up in July (of 2012). It was worth the wait and every penny it cost.
