    In short, 1dsmk2 is available for me to buy off a local commercial photographer.

    has shot 120,000 actuations - but the shutter was replaced at just below 100,000.

    Any pitfalls to buying this? He get's it professionally services quite regulary (CPS for Sydney Crew) and says there is some wear around the shutter button/tripod mount (expected to be with 120k shots)

    Asking price is $3600? Seems about right?

    I'm going to have a look at it tomorrow, but thought I might see what OTAP think before I ruin christmas.

    3600 aus? thats a really good price.

    its full frame so you may be tempted to renew all of your lenses after you buy it :hs:

    Yeah $3.6kAU :noes:

    Got 24-70, 50 1.4, 70-200 2.8 so almost covered my range.

    Could go for a 17-40 again but 10-22 was nicer on crop body.

    The money does not worry me, it's cheap! But the 120k shots and no doubt lived a hard life in the hands of a pro (he has 3 of these :eek5:)

    They can take a beating though.

    well if its already had the shutter done... thats about all the moving parts. as long as it hasn't sucked water (might be visible in the viewfinder) should be fine apart from maybe a new battery :dunno:

    either the 17-40, 16-35, some 20mmish prime or chop your 10-22 so it fits :hs:

    if you are used to a mkIII or the mkIIn you'll find the ergonomic experience of the 1dsmkII to be a travesty

    mobbarley it comes with 3 batteries :bowdown:

    I hate the 1d2n control system, is it the same? :wtc:

    If all goes to plan, I could have it tomorrow :hsd:

    Best thing is it will be a free upgrade, sell 5D/30D + Grips + 10-22

    Will end up been a free camera.

    This replaces both, I sell both of them and 10-22 and make a profit in the end :bowdown:
