For sale: 2 1Ds Mk II bodies, 24-70mm, 24mm 1.4


This feels a little like listing my first born for sale, but after a recent gear purchase it's time to say a fond farewell to my trusty Canon EOS 1Ds MK II 16.7 MP bodies that have served me well for the last seven years! Purchased at an astounding $7900 each back in 2005, they are in amazing condition despite usual wear and tear (truly, these things are built like tanks and I'm convinced they can endure anything!). The shutters were replaced last year and each has only about 50,000 actuations since. I'm selling each for $1200. 2 batteries and a battery charger come with each, as well as some excellent camera karma.

Next, I'm parting with two lenses I haven't used for the last two years. I feel like in the fashion world if you don't wear something in your closet for a year they say chances are you never will and it's best to purge. I'm adopting that theory here, selling my former go-to lens (again, purchased when I switched from Nikon to Canon in 2005), Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 L series lens (a must have for anyone starting out) for $1000 as well as my first love-at-first-sight prime lens (four years old) Canon 24mm f/1.4 L series lens for $1000. Lenses come with coordinating hoods and a UV filter.

Interested? Know someone who might be? Feel free to pass this blog post along and let me know if you would like any further information or if you would like to scoop these puppies up. Thank you!
