If you think the used market is bad for the 5D just be glad you don't have a 1DX2 to unload. Mine is in like new condition and I'm getting offered $2400.

I kept my 1dc and my 1dxii. There is no point really in getting rid of them. Someday you will be like man I liked that camera I wish I still had it. The 1dxmkiii will be a great camera but getting rid of a perfectly working 5d or 1d for a few peanuts is not worth the minimal upgrade. Now if the r5 rumors are true then sell sell sell or maybe not. These are the thought decisions

My (and others) experience has been they provide unrealistic prices and when one sends flawless items to them Adorama downgrades the condition and sends back a quote which is some 30% less than the original one.

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.
I only saw sub $2K prices from gray market sellers. What authorized Canon dealer was selling 5D Mark IV bodies for less than $2K before Christmas? $2,399 plus a lot of freebies seemed to be the lowest I saw.

I’ve never bought a piece of gear with the resell value of it in mind. And the times that we are in now... It’s probably the worst it’s ever been for selling used gear. It‘s phenomenal if you’re buying used gear, but on the flip, it’s one step removed from setting it out on the front lawn and letting people just take it.

Oh I don't know about that. Sure it's not what it used to be be I just sold an L lens which I gently used for 2 years and sold it for what I bought it for. All I had to pay were the Ebay fees. That took it down to a reasonable level of cost vs use. Now, I currently have no lenses I wish to part with so that's even better as there are fewer and fewer positive high ticket selling moments on Ebay and the like any longer with people defrauding so much these days.

That was with a $500 factory rebate that lasted for a week.
What's your point? Look, I'm not interested in a fight. I wrote:

I answered your question and provided you with the actual URLs to the prices. And, now you want to argue about it? Why is it so hard to just admit a mistake? No one is going to think less of you.

Who's fighting? I just made an observation that it was a very short lived temporary promotion.

Most of those URLs are dead links or are redirected to listings for $2499.

Speaking of low prices, The 5Ds is going for $1163 (grey) It's crazy time!
