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

Maybe gearheads are a good thing for people like me

I agree, there are some really strange people but my friend just like to be over-prepared and I reap the benefits everytime there is an upgrade.

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

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