    Looks like they have had these marked down under my nose at least, for almost a year. B&H still taking orders but on back order, anyone else thinking of jumping in and grabbing one at the $1500 price point it seems like a steal. Funny thing is I am surprised they still can get stock, I thought they were discontinued.

    Yep they started the fire sale about a year ago and it killed the trade in value of mine.
    I had thought of just keeping it but I knew I wouldn't use it again.

    Yeah I never planned on getting one but I'm thinking at 1500 it would pair great with my MK4. In all honesty I was shopping around debating picking up one of the wide angle tilt shifts from canon and saw the deal.

    I bought mine back in the summer of 17 and when I was researching it everyone said it was just a studio camera. I used it for wildlife and it did just fine, it had limitations with fps and wasn’t the best in low light but paired with a 1DX2 it was a great wildlife combo.

    It’s a great deal at the price they are going for now, I wouldn’t wait to long if you’re really thinking of buying one because they probably won’t be available for much longer.
