Posted this on NSOP, as well.
My dad, one of the main reasons I got into photography, is considering getting out of it. As much as it bums me out, I also would benefit from it. The items from his kit that I want are a Canon 1D Mark II and a canon 70-200 f/2.8 version one non-IS. The camera is in good condition but needs to be cleaned and looked at by canon. Padding that the mirror hits needs replaced and pentaprism needs cleaned badly. Would also consider a new shutter.
The lens is in about the same shape but might want to have it calibrated. It has a UU date code if that helps at all. Clean exterior but has some wear and nicks and scuffs.
So, this is what I'm thinking, I'll offer $600 on the body and $1,100 for the lens. Is this too high considering I will have to pay for the trips to canon for refurbishing?
