Default ok i need some opinions please

Ok i am looking for a new camera body to backup my existing setup which is a 5d mark 2, i have been offered a deal using up my 4 spare lastolite background cloths and my Canon 100mm f2.8 Macro lens boxed like new plus 550 for a 1 D mark 3 which has 85000 activations in good condition plus a spare battery.

what does everyone think ?? good deal ?

What's the value of the gear plus cash your trading and see if that's in line with the used market. I know in my neck of the woods a used 1D MKiii ranges between 2000-2400 Canadian.

The best backup for a 5D Mk II is a 5D Mk II...

Although the 1D3 is an excellent body, it is a whole different beast than a 5D Mk II, for one can you spare the resolution (21MP against 10MP is a BIG difference...), for two do you really need the 1D3's speed ?

...Price seems OK...

...€0.02...

Kindest regards!

no i dont need the speed of a 1 d mark 3 (10fps) i am sure there arent all that many that does, 5 d mark 2 as a backup , yes i would love that but no chance of stretching that far , i am not that well off i am afraid.

thanks for the input though i guess i will just have to think some more.
