    yea i've been looking myself. the most common price i find is about $400

    keh.com and b&h have them if you want to buy from a store and not the bay of e.

    hope that helps

    Unless you need mirror lock-up, skip it, save a few hundred dollars (to buy a nice prime) and get a F100.

    F100? no, i NEED that F5. why? simple: i love the integrated vertical grip, i do lots of vertical shots. and in 20 years, i bet some people will be paying a month's salary for one, just let it happen... :sexywink:

    There are other places but I have found KEH to be a stand up firm! What ever they say it is, it is and a little bit (sometimes a lot) more.

    It would be worth the piece of mind to buy form them rather than someone who may or may not really exist.

    Good luck and enjoy the F5!!

    I was at a camera fleamarket just this Saturday past... they had about 6 of them, all in *visually* great looking condition, all were between $300-$400 Canadian. Now, they could have been empty cases for all I know, I did not even look... I was too busy looking for Nikon flashes... lol

    i doubt people doing that for a F5, now a F6 in the future might do that.
