    Found a deal on CL for a used 5Dmki for $1350 with Canon grip.
    If we assume everything is in near perfect condition, is $1350 a good price?
    Assume ~10K clicks.

    I know I can get a used 5D body for about $1000-1150, but those have heavily been used and have a higher shutter count.
    Is it worth it to pay more for the cleaner body + grip? And regardless, I was going to buy a grip in the future anyways so that would have cost money.

    Sounds like you are trying to justify buying it to yourself already. It may be worth it for you.

    As for the price, that's a normal going price for a gripped 5D. Maybe even a tad on the high side.

    looks to me like he is just looking for the best "deal" financially...

    1350, is just about what i've seen for a 5d with the grip and a couple batteries.

    It is on the high side, but I don't mind paying a little more for the clean body.
