This is a feeler to see if I get any interest on this. I have a backup body... Canon 1D Mark 2 that I'm going to sell. According to Photo Mechanic, the shutter count is around 8600 on this one... which I think is about right since I've barely used this body since I upgraded to Ns a year ago. Expected shutter life on these is 250K. The body is about 18 months old. I am planning to upgrade to Mark IIIs and wanted to start moving some gear in preparation. The body is in excellent condition... only showing a little wear on the flash hotshoe and a few scuffs around the tripod mount. Included will be the body and everything that came with it... box, paperwork, strap, charger, etc.

The Mark 2 is very similar to the Mark 2 N which sells used for $3000 now, and new for about $3400. The primary difference is the larger LCD and addition of Picture Styles. Everything else is roughly the same. I don't expect market prices to move much on the Mark 2 and Mark 2 N any time soon, because the Mark III is probably going to come in the door at more like $4-4.5K.

I bought this one at Beach Camera for $3800. I am asking $2150 for it, plus shipping.

(Since this is a "feeler" thread, I reserve the right to change my mind and not sell... although I'm pretty sure I'd like to go ahead and move this now... how's that for indecision! ;) )

I'll try to post some pictures of it when I get a chance.

This is your camera's sister... don't you want to reunite the family? ;) ;) It kills to think about how much the price of these has dropped. It is also a heck of a camera for the price.... and barely broken in yet.

Can't you talk Trish into switching brands!

No reuniting here... if anything I am waiting on seeing what the 1D Mark III does in the market... and also considering buying a new sled which will squash BOTH ideas...LOL

I small studio owner from Georgia is buying it. He and I are in similar situations... trying to make career changes. He had a Mk2 and a 20D and has gone through a repair cycle on the Mk2 and didn't want to have that happen again... so he's going to 2 Mk2s. It is going to a good home, and will be used well.

One of the big bonuses is I forgot I had a 3 year Mack warranty on this, that still has at least a year left on it.
