Fortunately a lot of the folks buying new cameras don't think this way. That means a variety of cameras constantly resupplying the used market.

Bad for them, good for us.:D

I picked up my 1Ds2 at the PO this morning. Life is good.:D

I can't see myself buying a brand new body ever again. There is no value in it.

Dont think I ever will either. Bought a new 40D less than a year ago for $1150... now its worth jack..


Gear- Why do you care? If my image is good it's good, if it sucks it sucks. It's most likely my own fault.

Heck, even buying used you lose, just not as bad. Bought my 1D MkIIn in October for like $2,200 with 15k actuations. Already down $200! Ohh well, I love the camera and I don't fear taking it out and using it like I did with my XTi.

Same here! That is one thing that I miss about the film days. A body maintained its value for a little while and weren't obsolete every year or so.

Oh well - - Hello used market! :lol:

i dont think the 1d bodies loose too much, it always hype when a new camera is released with more MP. However the other things that really count never change that much, and the "real life" usage such as delivering for print, or shooting action, the 1dsmk2 and 1dmk2 will hold for many years until they change the way paper is printed :)

Give it about three weeks if this stimulus bill gets passed. Those with stocks will be looking for a quick buck...

Are you kidding? 1D bodies depreciate substantially! Consider that the 1Ds MKIII was $8000 when it was first released, it's street price is currently $1500 less than that, and I've seen them on the used market for around $4800. That's a pretty big drop if you ask me.

How many RAW images are you guys getting per gig with files that size?


Gear- Why do you care? If my image is good it's good, if it sucks it sucks. It's most likely my own fault.
