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

Untouched for months and needed to upgrade to 5d2?

There are really strange people, as you say your frind bought the 5d to use it only 1 or 2 times and then leave it in the box and now sell it for much less the used market value to buy a 5d2? The entire story sounds strange and I don't think represents a general trend as you titled you first post.

I got an used 5d too, I'm happy with it but I respect the upgraders, first because they gave me the opportunity to switch FF at affordable cost and then because if they used the camera for some time had their satisfaction from it and have the money to get something better, why not? The increased resolution for more cropping/tele reach, the better lcd, the faster operation and who knows what else surely give a better shooting experience. If they have the money why they should limit themselves? The guy who sold me the 5d is happy with 5d2, I'm happy with 5d, it's a win/win situation, there's nothing wrong with it.

Maybe it's just your friend wasting money but Iwouldn't say anyone is doing the same
