"Body Only"

When a used camera is listed as such, it's supposed to at the least include all internal components right? I always thought that meant that there's no lense or peripherals included but the camera is fully fuctional.

A friend is in the middle of a PayPal dispute where the seller sent only the shell of the body, with no parts or internal components of a D90 for $650.

When I think of camera body then I think of internals too but just a shell at 650...sounds like the seller is shady.

If i read, or sold anything "Body only" I would think it included the body, an eyepiece(eye cup), fully functioning....sans lens. Yes.

Do what Judge Judy did, check the weight. If he has it listed with a weight of say 1.2lbs, than he falsified the ad. The shell alone is probably no more than 10 oz.

Yea that's what I thought, cause as I recall the D90 retails at just under $1000.

Wow, what a smartass seller.

Yes, "body only" means a complete camera body. The distinction is supposed to indicate that no lens is included.
