    Since most of the stuff is sold, figured I'd make a smaller and easier to read thread.

    I have switched to Nikon need to sell this stuff, nothing wrong with it at all, just switching.

    Canon 1D MkII N, just over 49k actuations, very, very good shape, only a couple small scuffs on bottom of camera, nothing else visible anywhere. Recently checked and tuned at Canon Professional Services (CPS). No strap, but everything else, box with all unopened accessories, used charger manuals etc from another body already sold. One spare battery. $2000 or make offer, need to sell.

    Canon 1D MkIII, not sure the actuations as I dont know of a reliable program that will read it. Should be under 50k considering how it was used and that its a year and a half newer than my IINs were and they both had 49k on them. Extremely good shape, only a couple small scuffs on bottom of camera, no other marks anywhere. Has original box, manuals all accessories. Recently cleaned and checked at CPS. Recall fixed in January of '08. Camera was puchased in June of '07. $2800 or make offer, need to sell.

    Canon 500 f/4 IS. Great supertele Canon glass. Glass perfect, body in good shape with reasonable amounts of paint wear, especially on tripod foot. Recently serviced by CPS and had a new focus ring and camera mount installed. Functions perfectly. Includes original box, hard case, hood, strap, pleather hood/lens cover and rear cap. SOLD.

    Lens price is slightly more firm than others, but do want to move this gear so I can get the Nikon gear I need. Paypal, please include the 3%, I'll pay shipping. If paying by check or money order, will split shipping and will ship when check clears.

    Please email [email protected] or through my website at www.jimsykes.com.

    Please no IMs.

    When I was talking about a change awhile ago, several people voiced interest in the cameras, like an ass, I've lost their names and dont remember who it was. Here is you chance to get some high end bodies in VERY GOOD condition and hardly used (comparatively) for decent pricing. Please let me know.

    Before the disaster that was the D2H, there were a lot of Nikon users and a lot of Canon users out there. Many left Nikon as they seemed to have their heads up their ass and there was no light at the end of the tunnel (why I left). Now that they've got good product again (not judging one as better than the other), a lot of the original Nikon shooters are heading back from where we came.

    Stuff is still for sale and I'm willing to deal. Also willing to consider trades for high end Nikon equipment.

    I'm going to need to end up trading in this stuff soon where I'll take quite a hit, if you guys are interested and can came close to the asking prices at all, make an offer.

    I wish you had offered this stuff up four months ago. I would have jumped on the mk lll instead of buying a mk lln.

    Have them on both of those. I guess the economy is hitting everyone as I'm pretty surprised there has been very little interest in these from SS. POTN sucks in that you can only post every 4 weeks with no bumping, however, its ten pages down in about three days. There was some interest there at first but its died off now that its dropped way down the list.

    You need to pay at FM now.

    If you know anyone on those boards, you can ask them to help by replying to the thread to bump it. Just a thought...

    The threads dont bump on POTN. Replies dont bring them back to the top, its based solely on the posting time.

    Its a reasonably fair way to do things, I'm not upset at that, it just sucks that it moves so fast things get way down really quickly. They should allow you to repost after two weeks instead of four.

    Ok guys, the MkIIN is the last thing I have and I really need to move it. I will drop it to $1900 as a last ditch effort to get it sold.

    Or I'll throw in a drobo with no drives for $2050 to sweeten the deal if that helps.

    Let me know if you're interested.
