Deciding to trade up from my t1i to the 60D.

Anything I should be aware of when I'm trading bodies? Supposedly the guy just bought the 60D and it's too much for him. So I'm offering him my 500D body w/ an Opteka grip +$150 for the 60D body.

Sound fair or should I go lower?

I did a quick few second search and i saw a t1i for go 450 and 480. So lets say your body goes for 500+ the 150, you would be getting a 60D for 650. That seems pretty awesome.

IMO, it seems like it is harder to resell some of the rebels than a XXD body. But that is just observation of the FS forums here and FM.

Is the guy agreeable? If so and it's a good deal, I guess it's fair!

Great deal. as long as there is physically nothing wrong with the 60D, can you can trust this guy? if yes, do it. but his reason for trading down doesn't make sense. Unless he means too much as in financially, both cameras need the same amount of understanding of a DSLR to use. I would argue the 60d is easier to use with dual wheels and more direct buttons. No fiddling through modes to change something. GL!

Thanks, hopefully it goes down. If not, I'll tell him $75 + an 18-55 kit lens

hm interesting trade, lol. i just recently had a t1i w/ zeikos grip w/ 18-55..sold it over this forum for about 500, and then used that to fund a NEW 60D... SO YA, take the deal! another person said it right.. it is alot harder to sell the older canon rebel bodies these days, so if u can, take it!

just make sure the 60D is good and nothing is wrong w/ it!

If the 60D is in great condition, this is an excellent deal.
Brand new 60D body-only cost around $890
t1i+18-55mm = $600 + b.grip $150 = 750.
Just check if the 60D works properly before trading.

Great deal. Better than the canon loyalty program.
