    Default Want a new cammera...Ebay is really getting on my bits!!!

    Right I decided I wanted a new Camera....To be exact a Canon 5D mk 1. The Mk2 came out a few months ago but is uber-expensive...and some of the upgrades from Mk1 to Mk2 I wanted to see didn't happen. All the new Mk1's have gone from the shops, so its second hand.

    I've been asking around on a togs forum, and the concensus is that a good quality 5D should go for £750. So I trawl Ebay and so far I have found 43!!! however the prices on Ebay are SOOOOO over inflated I am doing my head in. I saw three that I really wanted, all went for ove £900.....

    Examples:

    £920
    £805
    £810
    £820
    £925 (one I wanted)
    £869
    £797(Had to do family duty and missed this...Would have paid more for the extras)
    £874
    £896
    £930 Another I wanted
    £955 and another
    £720 (poor one)
    £1095
    £915

    Plus a few more....

    This is really starting to tick me off.....Does Ebay ever enter the real world??????

    Have you checked the camera shops in Chester Steve? I've seen them in there in the past but never noticed the prices.

    How does a buyers market boost the price?

    It's a little Difficult ATM

    I rang the shop on Frodsam Street..No Joy. THe other shops have web sites. I have found some in online shops, But they are marked up. I was hoping Ebay would be cheaper than the high street used market

    I've started pricing a new 50D....Bit of a compromise!

    What about here??

    http://www.parkcameras.com/Article/8...Equipment.html

    particularly this one:

    SH-18-0006
    CANON EOS 5D BODY BATTERY, CHARGER, STRAP & BOX

    £749.90


    They have a decent range of used gear, you could even get a 1Dmk2 for the price of a 5D off ebay!!

    No probs, it might be worth calling a few PC worlds aswell as they were selling off the last of there 5D's at £700 brand new!!

    A long shot but could be worth it, a few people on a photography forum were saying that a couple of stores in Manchester still had them and a couple in Yorkshire.

    I've already tried PC world and Currys! I've done a national search

    Don't suppose you have a link?
