The resale value of 1Ds 3...

Is still amazingly high!

Ebay currently shows:

Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III 21.1 MP Digital SLR Camera - Black (Body Only)
Buy used: $6,650.00
5 new from: $9,920.00
1 refurbished from: $6,150.00
16 used from: $5,675.00
Next auction ends: $4,950.00 | 1d 4h 50m

I checked completed auctions and there are two that sold for @ $5800.

Isn't it amazing that the discontinued camera is commanding such a high resale value, and that new copies are going for more than retail?

Really strange, considering the "new and improved" model should be here in a month at a price point not substantially higher than the used prices.

I think this can be viewed as a statement against Canon's 1D X--either against the actual specs or against the "vaporware" aspect of the rollout. We're 5 months after the announcement and 1 month before the supposed release, and they still won't show photos, won't let people take photos at demos, etc.
