The price was right ($3,350), so I jumped on the offer. They even gave me a fair trade-in on my 7D+grip. Quick upgrade for about $2,500.

    Thank goodness for the small mom/pop shops that still exist.

    Thanks again for the input.

    Dan.
    Sounds like a killer deal--congrats Dan

    Wow. Deal of the year, i'd say.
    I've seen 1D4s go for over $3500 on fleabay (where prices are a lot lower than stores), for worse condition.
    They don't have a second body like that lying around do they?
    An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.

    @ Rick - you guys definitely headed me in the right direction. I think this upgrade is comparable to when I got my first L lens. You were right, it is a massive difference.

    @ Dr.C - will let you know if they find a second one in the back of the store.

    This was definitely my "blind squirrel" day. This baby is pristine. Will be putting it thru some heavy paces this weekend with the kids soccer games and hopefully some birding.
    There is beauty in simplicity.

    1DX | 16-35L II | 24-70L II | 50/1.2L | 70-200/2.8L IS II | 100L Macro | 100-400L II | 300/2.8L IS II | 1.4x III TC | 2x III TC | 580EX II | MT-24EX | lots of stuff
