Other than our classifieds, where would a good resource be for accurately pricing a used Canon 5D be? Thanks for any input.

You can search e*ay for auctions that alraedy ended.
I recently bought a used 5D and watched the price for a while ... I got mine for slightly more than 900euros. ... US prices may be different. B&H might be a good source as well.

When trying to get a ball park used price, I always go to KEH first, then figure some type of discount off that for buying frpm private party. I figure 75 % of KEH price is a fair deal.

Closing prices on eBay in the last couple of days have been around $1,100.

"Closing prices on eBay in the last couple of days have been around $1,100."

Wow. If those are legitimate and for cameras in good shape that is a tremendous value.

I just got the 5D mkII, so I just sold mine to a friend for $1200 (battery grip included).

Jerry, dont know where you are, nothing in your bio, so I will assume dollars, $1500 for one in very good low click condition and as low as $1000 from some one that wants to move one fast.

thanks again. i'm in TN and that sounds about what i'm seeing everywhere....$1000-$1500. excellent info from everyone.
i'm actually about to purchase a 5DM2 for our studio and retire the 5D. i'm the only one that has used the 5D since it was bought new so i know what it's been through as well. hopefully, our CFO will sell it to me personally for somewhere in the 11-1200 range.
