Hello all!

I'm not selling yet I just want your opinion. I have a 5D that I am looking to sell and the varying prices that people are trying to get online is just crazy. Mine will go with battery grip, 2 batteries, 3 CF cards, boxes, maunals, software, original strap, do you think about £600 is asking too much? It is in great condition with little cosmetic wear so maybe people selling the body only for £370 means they are well used?!
I've been sticking my head in the sand when it comes to depreciation and now it's out...

Cheers.

That is an incredibly low price! I recently bought a new one, on a pretty good deal, and with only one battery, for around £1250. The 5D is timeless (though I'm assuming you're talking about the 5D mk II?).

In reply to Caspar: Nope just the MK1.

In reply to IPPurewater: Fixation stock is all commission based sales of previous pro equipment, often battered and bruised and stupidly high shutter counts. Prices listed are ex VAT.

I've been selling 5D's quite happily for £500. £600 sounds about right for grip etc.

My D5000 is only £120? Ouch.

If anybody wants a bargain, then snap their arm off for this bit of kit as I have no complaints what so ever with mine.

In reply to apd: I sold mine with similar kit to yours and the 28-135 lens for £550, seemed a fair price.

In reply to apd: Thanks everyone, that eases my mind a little, really hate inflated prices of gear!
