A 1D II isn't a Compaq 286 running DOS. It's a very well-made camera which still produces good images. Resale value is in the tank but it's still useful. That's why he might want to consider keeping it.

Ain't it just grand, I too have a 1DsII and III, if I decided to sell them I doubt it would be worth the effort.

Now try and buy a really good condition Rolleiflex 3.5f or even worse a 2.8f and you pay a fortune.

I've just paid £1500 for a Linhof 5x7 Technika with extras, it's still cheaper than buying a 5DIII and it will still be worth the price I paid for it when the 5DIII is junk you can't sell.

Still my Canons put the food on the table the other stuff is just fun, even top end cameras these days are best thought of as disposable products.
