    Boy, that's a low price. You'd have to be in Limbo to get under it. Last I asked - for a friend - the BO was still $3400.
    CC, Image editing OK.

    You will love it! It is just a fine piece of equipment to work with...so many things to do with it. I'm surprised with the price though, especially grey market.

    I bought mine at JB Hi Fi Hornsby for $1,750.00, an 85mm F1:1.8mm for $285.00 and a 580 EXII for $450.00 all with genuine Australian Canon warranty. My daughter is negotiating a price for some equipment there at the moment and the camera is still $1,750,00. I am presuming yours came with a lens at that price?

    I actually use my 17mm-40mm L a lot of the time as a standard all rounder...I notice you have one too.

    BTW a good starting lens is the 50mm F1:1.4...well priced and good all round lens especially until you can afford an L series. Regards Don

    This made me GSP! That's the very place that told me as I said above. Hmm! I gotta go and ask them again. Must've been longer than I thought.

    There's a girl there, I think her name is Emily...tell her Don sent you and let her know that I told you how much she can afford to let it go for...Regards Don

    PS, I can actually go with you if you want to negotiate!

    Don... I'd have clicked the Thanks button, but as I'm doing it 4 someone else I didn't want to give the wrng impression. I can only say that if I were in the market for a new DSLR this'd be "tentpegging", not to mention tempting. (As it is, I'm in the market for a cash injection.) I can't but reflect on the difference in price over such an seemingly short time.
    PS. Thanks for your offer of going up there with me, but I'm sure they know me well enough there.

    Given worldwide pricing of $AU2400-3000 from reputable places that sell them as cheaply as you will get them, such as Camera Warehouse, DWI and B&H Photo, I'd say that anyone selling a 5D11 for $1750 at JB HiFi will get sacked when discovered. JB would have to be losing money at that price and they're not in business to do that.

    $2400 is a very sharp price for a 5D11 at the moment. britinozz has done well. I had a 400D and then a 40D before I got mine and, as great as the 40D was, the 5D is a much better machine in every way that counts. You won't be sad you did it!

    Oh my dear lord. When I bought my 5DII in the first weeks of its release I paid $4600 for the body, at Ted's. Best purchase I ever made.

    If you can swing it at $1750, you should buy two of them.

    Lenses: EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM, EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM, EF 50mm f/1.4 USM
    Strobist: 2 x Speedlite 580EXII, 4 x Yongnuo RF-603 Radio Tranceivers, Yongnuo ST-E2 IR Transmitter
    3 x Manfrotto Light Stands, 2 x Softboxes, 2 x Bounce Brollies

    Cheers

    Avoid shooting with a 12 gauge shotgun. Use a Canon instead.

    Canon 5D, Canon 7D, 50mm 1.4, 18-55mm, Tamron 17-50mm f2.8 VC, Sigma 70-200mm f2.8, 580EX Speedlight. Facebook

    Well, I told my mate in the country about this and now he's interested again. We had a yap about the 7D as well, and he asked how the image quality compares with the 5d. I said I didn't know and I'd ask, so I'm asking.
    Thanks, Am.
    PS: Tryptich's post just above seems to lean precipitously towards the 5D.
    PPS: If any other pros or cons come to mind please oblige.

    Hi AM, tried to leave you a personal message with phone contact but message says your mailbox is too full and won't except any messages. If you can fix that I will be able to PM you. Regards Don

    Hi AM...tried to leave a PM for you with contact details but got the following message so couldn't leave one...

    "ameerat42 has exceeded their stored personal messages quota and cannot accept further messages until they clear some space."

    If you fix it I will try and resend.

    Regards Don
