    I may have a chance to pick up an almost new hardly used Canon 5D and was curious what would be a fair price? If this does pan out, it might be a "make me an offer" deal.

    Thanks.

    Already been to both places, KEH only had 1 and B&H had none. I was hoping that someone on this site might have a good hand on the used market for this camera.

    as a " Pro Spec" body most people feel that it may have been hammered . As such they tend to be a little .... cautious... so in reality... not as much as you may think

    Take a look on Ebay and see if there are any on there and what they're going for secondhand.

    I currently buy secondhand digital cameras, due to being on a budget. All of my camera gear (apart from the 1Gb CF card) has come off Ebay, and all of it except the nifty fifty lens is secondhand, and so far no problems at all with it! ;)
     
  7. If it's got less than 5,000 actuations, I'd pay about $2,200 for it.

    I have bought a few 2nd hand digitals on ePay. Paid full price for a D1X new in 2002, then 2 backup bodies one on ePay for $900 and another from an individual for $500. Just be careful, read the sellers history and ask questions. I don't buy from outside the states except Australia and the UK. ( My daughter has had problems with purchases from Hong Kong. )

    @bab - where have you seen this 5D - is it Ebay, online store or somewhere like in the back of the paper in the classifieds?

    Best to get as much info on the camera as you can, like no. of actuations, has it being used professionally, and if you can get any good quality pictures of the camera. Also if you can go and physically see the camera to see for yourself it's condition all's the better!

    Is there some way of finding out how many actuations it has had?
     
  11. Turn the camera on, and on the back hit Info. There will be a little folder icon, and a file icon. The number next to the file icon is the number of shots taken.

    I've had mine since December 2005, and I have about 8,100 actuations, though I haven't really used mine since January 2007. I'm pretty active, my camera is flawless, I don't baby it, but I don't thrash it either.
