    Ted's in the city have the occasional piece of pro-gear. Have a nice
    canon 35-350L at the moment. Often have 2nd hand pro and semi-pro
    bodies. Not many canon lens, but plenty of nikon ones.

    Visit Kayell at Woolloongabba. They usually have some Nikon, Rollei,
    Cambo and other pro stuff.

    Most second hand pro stuff is offloaded for a good reason. It is nearing the
    end of its life.

    Certainly possible, but not necessarily so.

    A pro photographer relies on his or her equipment to make his or her living
    and so wants gear that works. Being able to depreciate equipment, and claim
    GST, means that in real terms it is cheaper for the pro to update than the
    amateur. Over the last few years, as digital has become more popular, many
    film cameras have basically become redundant from the professional
    photographers point of view. This means that there may be some bargains out
    there in secondhand pro gear. The other factor to keep in mind is build
    quality of pro gear. It is designed and built to last longer, and perform
    better than amateur level equipment. This is why it is more expensive to
    purchase initially.
