Most you'd pay for a 5Dc?

I would pay around 900 for a great condition 5Dc gripped.

I see them on local craigslists for 700-900 gripped all the time. It varies on condition,
but all are basically in decent to excellent condition.

(I was selling mine for 900, hence the comment. :lol:)

What would you pay?

For 7 year old technology...not very much. Sorry, that is just the fact of the matter.YMMV.

Unfortunately a lens holds its value far better than a dslr. And the way the market is pushing the prices down on the original 5d it looks as though the prices are headed further south by the day.

500, tops.

Great camera, no doubt, but old and of limited value to me. Think it may finally be time to live with my aging cameras until I can get my hands on a 5D3.

I am seeing them posted her for $650ish and they are falling. I may look to get one if they hit $500 or so.

how would paint scuffs and wear marks have any bearing on internal functioning? i've had my relatively pristine 5D2 camera throw many more error codes than my burnished 5Dc.

Paint scuffs shouldn't be a problem, but major dents can be indicative of how the camera was treated. You don't want to get a misaligned AF sensor or something like that...

They've only shown up at that price a handful of times, and usually they're claimed within 5 minutes of posting. I missed one and it had only been posted for 5 minutes :lol:

If you really think you can be on every minute of every day, and refresh every minute, then by all means, wait for it to show up at $650. The realistic average right now is $750.

I wouldn't pay over 750, it's a good camera, but the 5D2 is so much more usable, live view, a screen that does justice to the images being taken. Plus the 5D is approaching 1500 these days.

true. dents would not be cosmetic and would fall under structural defects imo.

About a month and a half ago just before the release of the 5D3 I was looking for a 5d classic and was looking for one around $800. The price has dropped a bit since then and if I were in the market for one now, I'd say about $750 is what I'd pay.I have seen a few for around $650 but those usually are in less than perfect condition and/or go quickly.

I never said that they are all going for that price, just stated that I have seen some in that range. Prior to the release of the MK III, I never saw one anywhere near that price point. My main point was that the prices are falling.

I still think eventually you will see the original 5d going for around $500 by the 1st of next year and the price of the 5D MII settling in the $1300 range by then.

I bought a 5DC on ebay for 750 +22 S&H.
Had a few scratches in the paint, mainly to the left of the left side buttons and on the bottom of the body. LCD also wasnt perfect but meh.
Took a black paint marker to the scratches and polished the LCDs (theyre also cheap and easy to replace). Camera looks pretty damn good.

Wasnt even planning on getting a 5Dc at the time, was saving my money for the Olympus OM-D E-M5 lol, but won the auction so I went with it.

Anyway, I agree with the others, I wouldn't pay more than 900, even if it was 100% cosmetic condition.

This is why I won't sell mine. I'd rather let it collect dust and have the backup insurance than get rid of it for $500.
