Im a crop shooter, recently had the opportunity to use the 5DII ....mindfucblowamazing , the images looked sharper , cleaner ...much better in every which way I can imagine. I used a 1dIII later on ..and while spectacular ... i really loved what i got off the 5dII , I was thinking of putting some money aside as times have been a little tough ...but I now really cant get my mind off the 5dII
5D Mark II can be bought brand new for $2161!
Bought it on Ebay from Cameta Cameras which is a Canon authorized dealer.
This seemed like a good thread to mention this in.
Got one myself. List price $2349 with $188 off for using Bing cashback, free shipping, equals $2161. Bing cashback took about 3 minutes to do. Idiot proof, although I had never heard of it. Basically, you just find the item you want using their search engine, buy the item as a "Buy it now" on Ebay, pay with Paypal, and they give you 8% off your purchase. Hence, $188 back in my Paypal account. Sweet. More info in the links below. Bing is Microsoft's search engine for anyone that is skeptical (as was I).
Brand new in factory sealed box, not gray market, not refurb, etc..
Checked them out on resellerratings.com and spoke with half dozen folks here that have shopped there. Just thought I would pass it on...
