depends on the price
Not if you buy mine
paying full price would be dumb... but its not stupid at all. Not everyone wants or can afford a 40D, 50D, or a 5D/5D mkII.
he wants 540 total from me.
good looking body, ~6000 clicks, all new accessories (cables, strap, battery, etc.)
i was going to get one locally for 525, but that guy is flaking because he cant find a 40d seller.
540 seems about right to me (for the market). But I would probably wait it out and see how far the prices drop on the 40d since the 50d was just announced.
yea, thats sort of what i mean. The thing is, 20d bodys still go for 375-450, so worst case scenario, a year or so from now if i want to upgrade ill be out ~100-150.
Also, i never watched the markets the last time a new body was released, but id imagine it will take at least a couple months for the price to drop in any significant way. Or am i wrong on that?
From what I've seen the prices drop under market value for a couple weeks and then slowly come back up to market value. Depends on the camera though and how big of an update it is.
There is definitely a floor for prices though and the 20D is pretty close to hitting it.
to buy today? yes that would be stupid. Today is national Canon 5dmk2 day. please refrain from discussing any other camera bodies today . we are all professionals here.
ask again tomarrow
Jump on it.
I'd wait and let the 40D prices drop.
