A 7D, with a poor choice for an APS-C kit lens that you'd be lucky to sell for $200, wide/tele conversion filters that will take mediocre IQ and make it downright crappy, and few other el-cheapo bits and bobs. 

<sarcasm>What a great deal. Woot.</sarcasm>
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

It has gotta be one of the worst deals ever ... ancient lens, cheap accessories ... just not worth it.

Do you think anyone actually buys these kind of deals? I would hope that even someone who knows nothing about photography would at least check out the items to see if it is worth it or not before dropping $1.7k?

Where there is ignorance there will always be some one ready to exploit it. sigh

There are a number of people who fall for such deals - typically people who "upgrade" directly from a P&S. I know at least two of them from the local photography club.

It was something like 1.7mil before they "fixed" it.

Brilliant, the 28-105!  I've always wanted a slow variable aperture 40-170mm effective film-era lens.

Oh so it was a bit sarcastic in your post, I assumed it was selling for cheap. That's funny it said 1.7 million! Wish you got the screen shot.
