While it will vary by market, locally we can get gray market 5DS with a 12 mth Guarantee for between 5% and 10% more than a used one without any guarantee . In some cases this 5DS price is less than a 4 yo 5DSr with 100k+ activations.

Whiles the DSr is sharper than the DS due to the reversal of the aliasing filter for most enthusiasts it doesn't matter.

Given for a large number of enthusiasts, their landscape work will (or should be at 50mpx) be largely off a tripod in good light, is is hard to sell the benefits of the R5 and its AF and blinding burst rates, at four and a quarter times the price.

If that's the case, not a bad deal.  I was just checking B&H and the 5DS was $3499 and I know I can get a used one with very low shots (they all seem to have very low actuations) for around $1000.  I suppose $1100 USD would be a good deal for a new one with guarantee.
