Angry 5D at eBay UK

Hi everyone,

I am planning on upgrading (yes still! ) from a 350D to a used 5D.

There is no used camera market here in Oman or anywhere nearby so I resorting to getting the camera from eBay.

I have been looking at some listing at both US and the UK eBay sites and there seems to be a big price difference.

From the US site, a body only with all the accessories (charger, battery, CDs, manual, strap) can be gotten at an average price of GBP 800. While on the UK site, GBP 500 can get you the same things...

Any explanation to this? Am I safe to go to the UK site?

Would anyone mind to have a look at these UK listings and tell me if they are ok?

They only show current bids. I would expect the price to go up more as closing time gets nearer.

Re: 5D at eBay UK

Ok, besides the cheaper price was saying... should I "trust" these or should I stay away? I mean, I don't know if I should just go for it or would someone suggest to "stay away"???

Re: 5D at eBay UK

I guess they're probably OK to deal with but I'd want to know how many actuations as well as condition - and if a private sale, the reason for selling

Re: 5D at eBay UK

I might be flying to London in mid July... would getting a second hand 5D there be "better" by anyway?

Well, at least you might get to see it before buying - as to whether it'll be a better time to buy......... no idea!
