Money to spend

You may laugh, but I think I've just sold my 10D for 700 ... so for 7 or 800 quid, what you think I should look for ?

Is a 1dMk2 still out of budget ? 20 or even a 30D ?

Good price if you get that for your 10D.

I'm sure that with your motorsport pics you'd really benefit from the lightening fast focusing system on the 1D MK2, but the cheapest I've seen them is the Canon Source refurbished ones for around 1200-1300 quid body only.

I'm sure you'd love the 20D, but the 30D has to be worth looking at in your situation if you can't stetch to the 1D. The larger screen on the 30D is a huge help when you're reviewing pics (sounds better than chimping) and with the spot metering, better buffering and other improvements, it's a more substantial upgrade for you than the 20D.

I'm tempted with this deal

But I'm a virgin to Ebay!

Don't forget that you have no UK Guarantee with that and also that unlike some others who will pick up any import duty (should you get stung) that supplier doesn't.

Is there duty on the Isle of man?

Great price and with the grip too!

Well the vendor there is a reputable trader with nearly 100% positive feedback. It's from HK so KIV you may cop for the import duty. You can often avoid the duty if you can get the vendor to mark 'Gift' on the package. I'd normally not advise buying an import camera as you don't get the Canon warranty, although these people are providing their own 12 months warranty. In the event of a problem, there's just the expense of shipping back to consider.

I've had no problems buying stuff off eBay, you just have to be careful who you buy from, and these people look OK. Your call Kris, but another option is the 9 months 0% credit from Warehouse Express. You get a full UK warranty and if you do have a problem WE get the camera picked up by courier.

I've been keeping my eye on them and the reserve seems to have been upped to 1500, still a decent enough deal mind you.

Good price for the 10D Liberalis I think you'd notice a big difference going to the 30D, or higher.
