Wow, thanks guys!
Tom, you clearly have a lot of experience on eBay. Thank you for all that information! Although I do think I am too chicken to start with a 1 Euro bid.
About the serial number. Cary, are you saying I need to show it in full on the pics? The reason why makes perfect sense to me, but I also read that showing the whole serial number was risky as people could then register it with Canon and claim it stolen. Any thoughts on this?
Tom #2 , I'm already making an add for the Dutch version of CL. See how that goes first. There are at present a number of 1D3's for sale on that list. The shops who advertise there have price tags well above 800 Euro, they're closer to 1000. Private listings are mostly around 800, so I intend to go a bit lower and be competitive. There's also a few other places I might try, like a Dutch photography forum. Problem is Dutch photography forums are small... Maybe I should put up an add here at POTN too. At least over here people know me.
Register it with Canon now before you sell it. However, there is little risk. You have proof of purchase for the 1D3.
