Looking to get an original 5d Seeing what I should look out for when buying a used 5d. anyone know any good places to get good deals other then ebay on the camera looking to spend around 600 if that on the body. What do I need to pay attention to when buying an old camera like this.

I'd go with KEH Camera, 6 month warranty and 14 day return policy can not be beaten on a used camera.

Craigslist and Ebay seems like a huge risk in retrospect.

Shutter goes within 6 months? No big deal send it back but if you bought it from someone on CL or Ebay you're screwed.

I just had a shutter go on me from a camera that I bought off of CL I would not buy a used camera from an individual seller ever again unless I knew them.

Keh is good.

I sold good stuff to keh

I'd buy from keh

I'd buy from craigslist if I got to check it out like GB said.

I bought my 5dc from ebay and had the shutter replaced, mirror reinforced,  and body adjusted and cleaned for $215.  $1000 + $215 ain't bad for the last 3 years  - $400 depreciation in three years -- where else can one get FF for that
