That's a great price George. I take it it's a little beat up with lots of actuations? I've been looking for the perfect 1D MkIIn but maybe I should go this route to save some money. Have you owned a 1D Mk IIn in the past
It's coming from KEH, and the condition is rated as "bargain"....which is one level above "ugly". Attached is a photo of the one I bought from them over a year ago that was rated as ugly ( I gave $415 for it, w/o a batt or charger ).
The one I have coming should look better than my old one based on the rating. I have bought three bodies from them as well as a lens and some other stuff, and I feel their rating system is very fair....I have always been pleasantly surprised when the item came.
Now...having said that....understand that I really don't care what this stuff looks like on the outside, as long as it functions correctly. And I'm not one to worry about the number of actuations. To me, it does not mean much....some die early, some seem to go on forever. Honestly, of all the Canon DSLR's that I have had, the only one that I've had to replace a shutter in was my first 20D....it died right out of warranty at about 25K frames. If they die....I get 'em fixed....it's no different than any other machine I buy....whether it's a car, a washing machine, or a camera.
And yes, I still have and use ( and love the way it works ) the camera in the photo attached. If 1D count is correct, it had about 130K actuations on it when I got it....and I guess I've probably added another 30K to 50K. Not sure...I use it more than I do my 1DS ( full frame )....but they both get used quite a bit.
If you buy used, be sure to get the battery charger, or at least count that in the sale price because the are $350. I already had one when I bought the "ugly" one....so i didn't care about it...and at $415, I figured I was getting a good enough deal that I went for it.
These are fabulous cameras....I am just in awe of how well they work and the images I get.
