View Full Version : Where to buy a 2nd hand Canon 5D or 5DII

Hi all, I was just wondering if anyone knows of a website that deals with used camera equipment. I really want a 5D but the price of a new one is prohibitive so I've decided to go down the second hand path. Any direction would be appreciated :D

As much as I dont really like supproting them I bought a second hand 5D at Paxtons in Sydney in June. I have also seen them at FotoReisel from time to time. Usually priced between $1500-1900 (expect to pay more than ebay but with more peace of mind).

It was expensivish (even after I talked them down $500) but they gave me a 12mth refund warranty and it was in perfect condition and one of the last ones made. Make sure you know about the serial number to manufacture year. I had given up finding one in good order until then and was about to buy the mark II but am happy with the classic.

Renae, one of the site advertisers here is http://www.cameramarket.com.au/ . Have a wander around there.
