Used Canon 5D, should I this late?
Feb 27, 2012

I used to own a 5D (2006) and sold it during hard times. Now I have an opportunity to buy one for $800, and I am considering selling my 40D to fund it, making the final price more like $350.

Is there anything I should be concerned about buying a camera six years old? The low price has me itching (cheaper than buying a super-wide angle for APS-C, and I already have the 17-40) but wonder... thanks!

An adequate tool in the hand of an expert is better than an excellent one in the hand of a novice. Expertise is the child of experience and comes of age with time.

Happy to share what I know. I learned a lot of it here.
