Considering a pre-owned 7D
Bought the camera
Turns out he was very reputable and the camera is in great condition except for some scratches where his video rig rubbed against the body...
I got it for 1150 so it is definitely in the current used range.
Also bought a new 430ex II and taking a flash class tonight...
Thanks for the input though, looking forward to shooting and relying on the forum for great info!
