What are people thoughts on this matter? I am quite upset about it. I always sell my gear and reinvest that money to buy new one but this 5R is going to be quite a financial loss.

Buy photography gear to use, not for what it's resale value might be in one, two or more years.

True enough, God Speaks, where 'ya been?

I only paid $299 for my 5R also in January, body only. It was a tied-down demo. on a shelf at Future Shop but somebody had liberated the lens. So I got it half-price.

So just like anything else, shop price and you won't be sorry.

Yup, many people buy 'slightly used' cars for the same reason.
