Guys, a friend of mine wants to sell his 1D, asking for around USD550, with good looking body, estimated shutter actuations 70.000, the downside being the box, all paperwork, and original strap are absent. A charger and an original battery is included, but the battery is leaking so it needs to be replaced ASAP.
Is that a good deal considering the body itself is in good condition? How much will it cost for an original battery?
I use a 50D now, do you recommend adding this body to my arsenal? I'm thinking of mainly using it with my 85mm.
Thanks for your insights.
