A good price for a fantastic camera. Have bought used from MPB before and have always been impressed with their accurate descriptions and photos of products, as well as fast delivery. I already made the upgrade a while ago from the 5d II and the difference is astounding.

This reduction may be in response to the rumoured 6d II being released in a few months when prices are expected to drop further but anyone who is familiar with camera rumours will know to take this with a pinch of salt!

Couple of other deals on their reduced page but this stood out to me as one of the better ones!

Paid £800 more five years ago for a brand new one.

So?
Another very satisfied MPB buyer here and a good price for the camera, so heat from me.
Hot for a superb Dslr. I just got £1200 part ex for one of mine with 3300 shutter count (£1000 for body + £200 trade in bonus). I owned two for five years (this one was my back up, so it was mint) and deliberated long and hard before getting the 5DIV.
in the grand scheme of things, it's a decent deal "if" you're buying one now anyway, the used prices are weirdly steep, but it is an excellent camera. I'm hardly jumping on it though. A grey 5d3 can be had at 1600. I've had my 7d for 5 years and I estimate I shoot 10,000 pics a year. I'd not say 72,000 was low use, unless it's professional use. whilst with a 5D it's unlikely, some fail at 80k. Plus the UK photography show is in 3 weeks. They were being sold at 1500 there last year after cashback brand new. In my opinion that's why prices are low, every man and his dog in the UK is waiting for that show. Plus grey prices for the 5D4 have gone under 2.5k so I expect a fair few will be upgrading.

Completely agree about used prices being high but in my opinion it's the best prosumer camera on the market at the moment. Having used a mk IV I don't think it's much of an upgrade and definitely not worth the difference in price. I'm one of those waiting for the photography show =) Also I have two mk III's and they're going strong at over 250k shutter each!
6D is a better value I believe with savings of almost half price. Has better dynamic range, but worst focusing system..hmm. I'm waiting for 6D mark II..

The 6d is fine for portrait photographers and casual users but anyone who shoots in low light or at events would massively benefit from the hugely upgraded autofocus system!

In low light situation 6D is a winner. Read..
