Used 50D, is it worth it?
« on: April 03, 2012, 05:16:20 PM »
What's a reasonable price to pay for a single owner 50d body with 18k on it, with canon grip, and original battery, charger, and all boxes? 

Is $549 too much?

I don't know about used prices in the US, but converted to our prices here, thats cheap...  especially if its gripped and comes with everything...

Adorama is selling a 40D plus Canon grip for $499.  $50 more for the 50D is not bad.

To be honest, I don't know what a used 50D goes for.  I still own one, it was my primary camera before my 5DII.  It's a totally solid and excellent unit.  Perhaps there are better prices to be found?  I'm not sure.  But with the 5DIII out now, you can bet that the 50D isn't going to be in great demand so I would expect that the price should drop quite nicely.   I think (and this is only my opinion) that you should be able to do better.  Good luck!

I've been trying to sell it for $549 and no go.  I'll keep trying, thanks.
