Well... I'm starting to give up hope....

I keep reading about people who find these incredible deals on the Canon 5D (full frame camera, but not the 5D Mark II) for less than $1000. But the ebay prices I'm seeing ebay are $1400 and up.

Am I just looking in the wrong places.

I'm planning on buying the 5D Mark II in a year to 18 months, but my current budget is considerably less than the $2600 I'm seeing right now for the Mark II.

Any ideas on where to look for an old 5D?

Those prices you're finding on Ebay look to be about right. keh.com (a reputable vendor of used gear) has prices on the 5D running from around $1169 for a body in bargain condition to $1499 for a body in Like New- condition.

something between $1200 and $1500 is about right for a used 5D on eBay. i got one in like-new condition with about 6k clicks on last fall for $1300, and it was about the best deal i could find at the time. if you're seeing one for under a grand, i'd be VERY leery of the seller, the camera condition, or both!
