I'm wondering if you lower the price slightly, they may go much quicker. There is a market out there who wants a fast 1D body but don't want to go all the way to the 1D X. In the U.S. right now, used are from $4000-$4500 and new $5000-$5100. In UK I'm sure higher. I think you can make a lot with the 1DX being priced where it is and how good the 1D Mark IV is. Good luck to you.
Thanks, I appreciate your feedback.
I haven't actually said how much I am selling them for, I have only said exactly how much I am buying them for and the only reason for that is because I want complete transparency as I will be giving the person that buys one the receipt so they can get the full warranty without any difficulty.
I can understand the doubts of some but this is not my business, I just saw an opportunity. I will be in the UK to cover some pretty major events and will have at least one or two cameras with me. If I leave them in the UK when I return to Asia then fine, I can just get a new one if needed.
Another reason I prefer the UK (apart from the higher price I can sell them for) is I would very much prefer to hand deliver. Like I say, I want total transparency, I would prefer (if at all possible) the person with the money to see them, make sure they work, check the serial number with Canon (which I may be able to do before I even buy them) and be happy with it. I do not want any surprises. This is not going to be a regular busines venture as I am hardly ever in the UK anyway, but I do want the buyer to be 100% happy.
Then on the other hand, if I do not sell any, I don't care, I won't have lost anything apart from the potential for profit. Just seems a shame that I cannot share my good fortune of tumbling on these 1d Mark IVs with someone who might want one at a great price.
