Hey peeps! I'm thinking about picking up a 5d mk III used to save a few coins instead of buying new. So I was wondering if there's anything in particular one should check/look out for while inspecting a possible purchase? Such as that light leak issue etc.

Thanks in advance for any tips on the matter!

Check it out for anything like normal such as dust or dirt on the sensor. Make sure all the functions work. The wheels and buttons feel correct.

The light leak is a non-issue unless you shoot with the lens cap on. :p
