Some forums have a buy/sell area as well. The problem with that is that it partially goes on trust, and since he is knew people wouldn't know him.

If he wants to get rid of that 1Ds for about 2K, I'd be interested. :lol: :lol:

eBay will give your item a much wider audience than is available on most forums. Good, enlarged pictures and an accurate detailed description of your camera will help you to get the best price for your item.

I agree, ebay shows them to a very wide audience. My thought was that a 1Ds is a rather specialized piece of equipement. If your price was reasonable, then posting in a forum or two with dedicated buy/sell areas might get it sold faster (fewer, but more serious offers and none of the bidding aspect. Just name a price and see if there are takers.)

If you care more for getting the best price you can, then ebay is probably better. On a forum, the people will (probaby) know what a reasonable price is and not touch something which is overpriced even a little bit.

The obvious choice is to go to adorama.com or bhphoto.com and look at their prices. You can probably find it for less, if you hunt some, but their prices are good for reputable stores.

But before that you should sell me the 1Ds for 2K... its a very good deal ( For me, that is. It goes for around 8K.)

I would ask why a person who has cameras of this quality doesn't know the pricet. That seems odd to me... those are some of the most expensive 35mm digital SLR cameras being made.
