I think I'm going to go for an EOS 3 instead. I will only be shooting indoor portraits, and don't need the fast AF and weatherbuild extras. Shutter durability for the 3 is 100K and the 1V is 200K I believe, but I suppose I won't be taking 100K shots with this
There is one for sale locally that sounds nice, i'd be happy to pay for it and pick it up for you if you work out a deal with the seller. You can then pay me the cost plus shipping.
I've bid on one on ebay already but it's mint condition as well. If I don't win, I will gladly take you up on your offer. I guess I should have posted this before I bid. By the way, THANK YOU.
