I've read this a few times now where people mention a new sealed D7000.
Mine came in the Denon box, with the plastic cover slid over it, but nothing was sealed. Is this how others' were packaged, or did I get an open box? (Note; I bought them new from an authorized dealer)
Yes. Several years ago, when I got mine new, they were in a plastic 'bag', slipped over the Denon box, and taped closed.
