Only up to $1250 for Canon 5D4? Geez that market has fallen drastically. It's worth more to keep around as a spare backup. So much for C-LOG upgrade adding value.

Adorama is great to do business with for used sales, but be clear you understand the expectations before you ship. They expect a reasonable profit (maybe 30% of the sale?) based on real used prices people will pay.

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.

They'll pay you up to $1250 and turn right around and sell it for $1750.
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 the 5DIV on kijiji in Canada for ~$2k CDN recently (~$1500 USD). Who knows if they're moving, but that seems to be the used market position here right now.

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.

Given the fantastic Christmas sales on 5D IV, when they were going new with Canon warranty for under $2,000, it's no surprise the used price has fallen.

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.

Is there a good classified forum for high end photo gear? I’m tired of 13% eBay/PayPal commissions and sales tax.

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

Perfect. I prefer the quality of a pay site to the headaches of a free site. Astromart is one I use for telescopes.

EOS R5 is its mirrorless replacement, it may drop another $75 on the release day in a few days
