    I just sold one Kelpie. The word must be out because I got a mere $650
    for it. I hope you do better with yours but doubt it.

    I was about to advertise it on eBay when a fellow offered me the
    average price brought on eBay in the past month. Just the body at
    31,000 clicks with a dodgy grip (only worked on one battery) I threw
    in for free. worn on the flash shoe, scratched on the tripod mount but
    otherwise GCFA.

    I sent it to Canon in Jan for a service and to have dust removed from
    the viewfinder. It came back with an $80 bill, the same dust in the
    viewfinder and 3 spots on the sensor! It had the click counter reset
    too and wouldn't work on some of my new flash cards when it came back.
    Worked OK in the 2 gig ones.

    Rita was right about the 18 months rule. I sold my other 20D at 17
    months for $1370 and kept this one as a spare. I should have sold it
    then and bought 2, 5Ds. I suppose you are moving to Nikon too eh? An
    unbelievably expensive exercise I now question the value of having
    done.

    At least I am comfortable with Nikon. I never did like the way all my
    Canon's needed a camera specific profile in RAW conversion to ensure
    skin tones were the same from each camera. Nikon has perrrfect skin
    tones out of the box. Nearly as good as the S5 Fuji.

    Good luck with your sale mate. I'd try the Trading Post if I were you.
    It's where I get higher prices than eBay for camera gear ...and paid
    with currency too.

    Nah, 5D. I don't need a speed demon, and the price is right.

    What a pity.
    I sold my 5D in Feb for $1800 Anyway... You won't go astray with one. The
    ability to pull detail 3 stops out of shadows without noise is one of
    their best features. Just beware of using a fast lens wide open for a
    while. DOF is a bugger all with 100 mm FL at F/2.8.

    If you still shoot 35mm, you'll understand the difference between a 20D
    and a 5D in that area. If not, you'll learn real fast!

  15. because if you had half a brain, you would realise that the first post in
    this thread by Atheist Chaplain was in fact by the Usenet troll and
    perpetual impersonator Gordon Lightfoot III and not in fact by me (the real
    Atheist Chaplain ) it pays to check headers when the chronic masturbator
    Gordon Lightfoot III is polluting the gene pool.

  16. I just picked up a 20d on ebay for $550, looks like I got a bargain.
    Might put it in the trading post for $650.
