    I am now the proud owner of what appears to be brand new 1Ds mk II, 100-400is lens, 28-135is lens. None of these items look to have even been used.

    But before you get all worked up....I plan on selling all this stuff. I might keep the new 1Ds and sell my other 1Ds however.

    bingo!

    This shit is literally brand new. Not a mark anywhere. I doubt the camera has more than 300 clicks on it.

    Prices for those who are interested

    1Ds mk II. Complete with everything but the box. $2250 plus PP & shipping fees

    100-400 IS lens. Not a mark anywhere. No box but has the hood, case and strap. $1200 + fees

    28-135 IS lens. Same condition as the other stuff and no box either. $275 + fees

    If it's in good condition, that price isn't high at all for a 1Ds II.

    the ad just says 1ds ie a 1ds i. but he also states its a 21megapixel which would make it a 1ds iii :eek5: in which case, i will go pick up tonight to flip if its not already gone.

    Before you do that you need to mount the biggest lenses you can on each body, then sling them around your neck and on your shoulders, then take a picture. :rofl:

    I just did a JColman myself last night and got a EF 16-35 2.8 II and 70-200 2.8

    Or maybe its not a JColman until you've done it 2 weeks in a row???

    You actually paid money for the 28-135? That is one horrible lens. :bigthumb: on the rest of the shit though.

    I should have put up all my lights too! Oh, and I found out that the camera had 24 clicks on it and most of those were from me shooting test shots!!! This thing is brand spanking new!!!
