The following specifications are from the manufacturer (Nikon). The camera has been with me for four years now. It looks like a new camera. You will have to hold it to believe it.
Just as a thank you note, I have added a Nikon carry bag as well. The bag itself cost me about $90. You may see it in the pictures.
Let me know if you have any questions.
