Hello chap,

What do you mean with "seems like a way dear"? I think you mean, too expensive?

Greetings!

Take care that EU prices are always higher then US prices new...
Example: The 1DmarkIII costs here 3550 euro new, its aprox. 5487 US dollars.
But indeed, i find the shuttercount high... But is it high for a cam like this?

Overpriced I would say, even if new prices are higher in the EU how does that matter for used prices...

Yikes, just a question between friends:(

It really depends, I mean, how much is a 5D used in the EU, the 1DmkII in mint shape should be just a little less than that....$1200 is not a good benchmark, what a deal, wow:) I see em here from $1500 -1700....Truth told, the mkII is exceptional, it is as solid as they make em, AF, IQ, build....excellent...r​ight now they're a steal in my opinion

I surfed around locally, and on the used gear sites, the 1dMKII cams are all around 1500 euro here....

New it was costing 3300 euro here, thats about 5100 usd.

At those prices, would it not make sense to buy in US and import? (I have no idea what kind of tariffs/taxes/etc are tacked on, so if that's a stupid suggestion, sorry)

As far as shutter count, I wouldn't worry about that.
