Are you thinking about upgrading to the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III? Adorama would like to make that financially easier by buying your Canon EOS-1D X Mark II or Canon EOS 5D Mark IV bodies.
The Adorama process for buying your gear couldn't be easier, it's three simple steps.
- Get a quick quote
- Receive a prepaid shipping label
- Cash, trade-up, store credit or direct deposit, the choice is yours.
Adorama will give up to $2500 USD for your Canon EOS-1D X Mark II (condition dependent) and up to $1250 USD for your Canon EOS 5D Mark IV (condition dependent).

But they will pay shipping, inspect, give a quote, and pay shipping back if you decline. (Don't be unethical just to let your camera enjoy a trip to NYC! ;-)
Also, if you decline, they may "sharpen the pencil" a bit and raise the price. They did that with my Nikon Z6.
I think you just discovered the concept of "retailing."
You could put it on Ebay where buyers can buy one now for $1499 (plenty sell for $1400 or less), and pay 13% commission as the buyer pays their 8% sales tax. And you'd have an hour of photographing, describing, packing and shipping. And answering dumb quyesitons and worrying ablout flaky or fraudulent returns. Hmmm...
$1250 seems to be more than you might net on Ebay.
I've seen them selling recently for as low as $1350 on forums.
If I'm tempted enough by the coming R5 or high resolution model, I'd probably consider selling my 5D IV, but on the other hand I'd also like to not be in trouble with my partner for the next 6 months.
On the other hand, the Adorama offer on the 1Dx II is about $1,000 less than what they have been selling for on eBay. It's like trading in a used car vs. selling it. What price are you willing to pay to a seller not to have the hassle of selling it yourself? To me, $1,000 seems a bit steep, especially since I doubt the value of the Mark II is going to drop that much with the release of Mark III.
Fred Miranda by and sell forums. It's a old photo community where gear flies back and forth daily. Quite a few gear heads on there that sell lenses veryy often, keeping wanted lenses and other gear in circulation in the community.
Literally everyone should be using it. Your welcome :)
Note that's it's 25 per year to access. That's it
Is the rumored 2/13 announcement also the release date for R5?
