Sell both if you don't need 2 bodies/grips and 550 flash.


Nikon D4, Sony RX10, Sony RX100.
Past Gear: (most recently) 5D3, L's, etc.

I'm ready to take that plunge now and I'm getting no love on my FS threads lol.. this is LAME lol.

I'm really going to hate having to resort to eBay to funnel these tools.. ARGH... !

Sign up for Mr Rebates and buy it from Adorama so you can get 3% cash back of $3500. I just save you $105 right there :)

GOOD Call but im in NYC.. so that savings would just get EATEN alive w/Tax.. I need a non-us based store that works with Mr-Rebates. Perhaps Abes of Maine. Just have to deal /their useless up-sell call..

Have you tried craigslist? That's where I have gotten almost all of my gear current and past. Just hold out till it sells or offer a price people can't say no to.

+1 to this. I would start over because going from a crop to a FF you will find it's a whole new world.

Yea.. I'm in NYC our craigslist gets FLOODED with stuff, makes it near impossible for your AD to stay put within the 1st 200 searches for no more then 30 minutes. They SPAM the crap out of their listings ..

I search Canon and get Stoves / Dishwashers and so forth lol...

The 7D Gripped is gone.. now 1/3 the way there..

totally agree with you, i had this per-meditated for a short while, hence why i forced my self to sell my 10-22 for a 17-40 cause it would work w/the Crop and FF 5D classic i had at the time.. but now going w/a 1 body system, it was the right move indeed and one less lens to have to move.

I feel like the 5D3 prices are going to drop a couple hundred bucks in a month or two.

while that may be, I'm not really going to wait around waiting for such a thing. If it does, GREAT. If in need/want of a 2nd body, It could be the perfect time to buy. But from the topics here and reading on my own about it, It's price point while high, doesn't mean it's not worth it at all to me to buy now.

Oh by the way, if anyone is interested in purchasing this beauty, You can do so on

www.abesofmaine.com (external link) , use MrRebates for 2% cash back, you'll get a free 32GB CF Sandisk Card and be sure to use LOYALTY15 at checkout for an extra $15.00 off your purchase.

All in all another savings of about $90.00, if you sell the Memory Card savings of $140.00+.. Sweet deal for those outside of NJ cause then you save the TAX as well..

Downfall? They will call you trying to sell you the world that you supposedly would need to compliment the camera better. The deal is definitely worth the 3 minute phone call, and free next day delivery since I'm in NYC.

What about going to the actual photo section on craigslist? Washers shouldn't show up in there and if they are flag them
