Buying a 5D
Oct 20, 2008

A shop near me has a good price on a secondhand 5D and I was just wondering what people's opinions are. Obviously its still a great camera. I have totally outgrown my 400D (www.filedimage.com) and have been excited by the 5D Mark2. However it is totally out of my budget. The 50D is the alternative but im pretty keen to make the step to full frame. I am mainly shooting concerts which the 5D will be a vast improvement for me noise wise. I realise the newer cameras are that much better but price is price. In Australia the Dollar has plummeted which makes the new cameras even more expensive. The new 5D will be 3 times the price of this second hand 5D.

The camera has a 3 month warranty and is very new and looks brand new. Im not too concerned about it being second hand.

Opinions appreciated. I dont think I ahve much choice and really cant go wrong.
