Thanks to those dumping 5D for 5D2, I got a great deal

this thread shows what gadgets can do to the gadget fanatics

selling a camera (full frame, beautiful) for 700 hundred bucks is the most ridiculous thing Ive seen lately.

it shows that the "gadget" aspect of photography is more important than the photographs
good for the photographers able to cut a very good deal thanks to that.

so the gadget-fever is a good thing for some, after all

I just bought one (for me) just to have it and the person who sold it to me was jumping up and down with the shiny new model

you know what? I bought it for a price very close to yours and honestly I don't feel bad at all about it: the previous owner never put a flash on the shoe, took maybe 3K shots and never really came out of the room because he was too busy testing the gear... typical. He even wanted me to look at the 200 shots of the same target he took to check the focus
