This one has taken me a while to finally decide to let her go. Up for grabs is my last 5Dc. This camera really started everything for me in many ways. I've had several 5Dc's now and have just really loved the color and RAW files they output. I don't think you will find a less expensive full frame experience out there. If you've seen my photos and by others in the 5Dc thread and around POTN, you know what this camera can still do and is still one of the most highly active full frame cameras out there with a ton of users still.
This is of course a well worn 5D, but she functions flawlessly and doesn't miss a beat. Everything functions as it should, buttons are still good and tight. The body is worn in the usual places you'd expect. There is of course no shutter actuation count, so just assume it's probably on the high side (it was 2nd hand to me). It's had any fixes performed to my knowledge, and again, is still functioning flawless to this day. It comes with the Canon grip, 4 batteries (a mix of Canon and third party), the Canon battery charger and a Sandisk Extreme III 4Gb CF card to get you going fast. There is no original box or other accessories. Everything you see in the images is what is in this bundle. This camera has no problem with modern lighting too, such as high speed sync triggers (including third party ones, like YN622's, R2, etc) and works great with third party lenses without any issues (Sigma, Tamron, etc), also trips third party flashes no problem too (Yongnuo, Flashpoint, etc).
This camera has the Canon Super Precision Matte focus screen installed in it, not the standard one, which allows for precision manual focus via the view finder (focus by depth of field) with fast aperture lenses up to F2.8. So if you're interested in using vintage glass and fast primes that are fast aperture (F1.4 to F2.8) it will let you easily manually focus (and AF) in those ranges which opens a lot of doors for vintage glass use. If you're planning on using slower glass (F4~5.6 or slower) you will probably want to install a standard focus screen or grid focus screen (you can still buy them new for the 5D from B&H). I rarely shoot slow glass, so I've always used the Super Precision ones. The standard screen is not provided in this bundle, just the Super Precision Matte that is installed.

Feedback: I'm all over the feedback thread, all of it positive, take a look if you feel the need
Reason for selling: I moved to mirrorless (Fuji) and after a while I am finally comfortable enough to let my dSLR's go. It's still hard for me to consider this, as I love this camera, but I have to be rational
