Guys.....

could do with your advice I have a 1Ds MKII that i'm going to sell, it doesn't have the Canon box but comes with cables, cd's, extra Canon battery, charger, strap, manual etc & has only 21,180 clicks on it, it's in superb condition............do you know a price point i should sell at? It's a UK camera but my friend is coming over from AZ on 12th January & returning home on the 21st Jan, he could ship it for me FedEX ground insured from AZ What do you think i should ask as most on here seem to have the box as well? Cheers

Martin

Martin:

If you look at various places like Fixation and MPB you will see the selling price for Ds2 is in the 800-900 region.
Aperture in London have one with 55k on it for 690 .

It comes down to how fast you want to sell it. A lot of 1ds2 on sale here. But look at the ad age to gain market desire. Don't forget the 5d2 has come down in price too.

My friend is a pro wedding photog & hated the 5d II, he said that the 1ds MKII & 5d MKII are like chalk & cheese, saying that, he adores his 5D MK3

I'll put it up for $950 inc shipping within the 48, sounds fare to me.

Martin: If I had the cash I'd be so tempted to save you and your friend the hassle .
I bet if you stuck it on gumtree for a local only (face to face) sale you'd clear 750 without much trouble (which I make in the region of $1200)

Goog luck
