    Anyone look at camera prices lately!? WOW!!!



    [:O] Have I been living under a rock the past week or what!? The 1D MK IV is $6,000 now on Amazon and the 7D is $2,100! A year ago I paid $1550 for my 7d!


    And I actually thought I might be able to afford a used 1D MK IV at some point soon ...HA! HA! HA! [:'(]


    Due to supply shortage, people that do still have them in stock are sure taking advantage of the situation!


    Hmmm...keep my 7d or trade for a used 1d mk III?

    Denise, if you look closer at Amazon, it's the same price it's always been: $1700.


    If you buy it from "the Portable Guy," you're going to get hosed, and pay much more than it's worth.

    B&H raised the price listed on the 1D IV to its suggested price of $4999. Mine was around $4600 when I bought it.


    But both Adorama and B&H are out of the 1D IV

    I have been watching this for the last month or so, before the earthquake and tsunami, and for some reason the 1D IV has been scarce from reputable dealers. Since the earthquake and tsunami, the 7D and 1D IV have both been very scarce and the 5D II spotty. It seems the prices on all of them has gone back to at least list when they are available.

    the 7D is out of stock. I guess you can't get a new 7D for $1700 anywhere in the US right now. the cheapest price I can find is about $1900 on a ebay store which I trust. I think it's a good time to sell.


    does any body want to buy my 7D?[] since I can't take picture for a while anyway.

    my bad English, I should have said "I don't have time to take picture for a while anyway."


    it's been super busy and it should back to normal in few months, thank you very much for asking that Chris!
