    Used Canon EOS 5D 12.8 Megapixel with Lens! - $1300

    This camera was bought on 4/16/2006 and has been used to take 7,823 photo's. Its serial number = 0920703XXX. The camera is in complete working order and has never given me any problems. The sensor is clean and there are no major cosmetic blemishes, other then a slight wearing of the coating on the flash terminal. In the image of the back of the camera, what appears to be a scuff mark on the lcd screen is actually oil from my finger.

    The lens was purchased on 11/31/2006, and has been used a few times. It's serial number = 2160XXX. I only used it for night shooting, and the 50mm was limiting for me. It is in perfect working order, with no major blemishes. the glass is clean and without blemish. The box has had its bar codes taken off for the initial canon reinbursement deal. It comes with a 58mm hoya brand uv filter, and a 58mm opteka infrared filter.

    The reason I'm packaging this camera with the 50mm lens is because I can't find the lens mount cover for the camera body.


    Total Package includes:
    - canon eos 5d camera body
    - camera body box
    - canon 50mm f/1.4 lens (with front and rear lens caps)
    - lens box
    - 58mm hoya uv filter
    - 58mm opteka infrared filter
    - 3 canon bp511a batteries
    - 2 1gb sandisk compact flash cards
    - canon strap
    - audio visual cable
    - usb cord
    The package comes with original paper work

    After i sent him an email, I noticed that this ad was in every major city

    This is his email responce:

    Hello

    I still have the camera.
    My name is Robert Ferguson and I am now in Manchester, United Kingdom.
    I hope you are still interested and we can make the deal happen right away.
    Obviously we need a safe way to complete this deal that will allow us to make sure we receive what we are after.
    I have found a way for us to complete the deal fast (3 days) and easy. The solution is a worldwide delivery company called TNT. TNT is similar to Fedex, DHL or UPS and they will provide assistance in hadling the payment and delivery of the camera.
    With this procedure you will be able to check the Camera before I receive the payment.


    Let me know what you think.

    Thank you,
    Robert

    Manchester is the scam capitol of the UK. I'd say 70% of UK scammers are based there.

    Definately avoid. It's just not real.

    Love the thumbs up in the reflection of the screen though. Attention to detail! Haha
