I was noticing according to the poll on the PFRE Camera Page that the 5DMKII is still the PFRE readers camera of choice. The only other DSLRs that are even half as popular as the 5DMKII are the D3 & D700 I probably should have made a separate line for each one.
Also, there doesn’t appear to be a massive rush to upgrade to D800s and 5DMKIIIs. This got me thinking about what the used 5DMKII market is like. Amazon shows:
- New 5DMKIIs are $2079 on Amazon
- There are plenty of used 5DMKIIs for between $1699 and $1995.
- Refurbished 5DMKIIs are available for as low as $1900.
Given how popular and versatile the 5DMKII is as a real estate DSLR it make make sense to go with a new or used 5D.
While I’m on the subject, I’d like to encourage folks to take the poll on the Camera page if you haven’t already.
