FS/FT: 40D, Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8, and Helios MC 44M-4....
« on: September 29, 2010, 03:36:15 PM »
I'm in need of some money right now and I just can't justify keeping all this gear.  I've got another baby on the way in about 2 weeks and work is slow.  I really don't want to sell my camera but I'm just about forced to.

Here's what I have...

40D Bought used from PTON.  Can't remember who. But, it has been refurbished/serviced by Canon.  

Works flawlessly.

Here is what I DO NOT have for the body.

- Original Box
- Any original packaging or literature
- USB Cord

Here is what I DO have that comes with the body....

- White box that came from Canon after refurbishing
- Cap
- Neck Strap
- A/V Cord
- SanDisk Extreme III 4Gb CF Card
- 2 Canon BP-511A Batteries
- Battery Charger
- Possibly a few more accessories, I will have to check and update thread.

Photos taken with my cell phone.  I have a Canon A80 at home, and I will take new photos and update this thread....

There are a few pieces of black tape on the bottom of the body.  You may see them in the pics.  These are not covering any blemished, but are protecting it from a tripod mount or the corners in case of bumps.  There are no marks on this body.  Same goes for the LCD screen.  Flawless.  I will leave the tape on their unless the buyer wants them removed.

TRADE INFO - I will consider a trade for a very close to new slim camera(for the wife since she doesn't like using this).  Or smaller DSLR with a lens or 2.  example - Rebel XT with a 50mm f/1.8 + cash.  Again, if you have trades that involve cash, shoot them at me.

If you wanted to pocket a couple hundred bucks, I'd trade you my 30D with new shutter + $175 for the 40D.

What's the biggest difference I'm going to see dropping down to the 30D.  If I'm going to pocket only that much, I'd like to know.  But, I'd rather sell it.  But, I will think about it.

8.2mp vs your 10.1.  Slightly worse performance at ISO1600. Slightly smaller LCD screen.

Crap, I sold my Tamron so fast on POTN. And at my asking price.  I'm kinda regretting it.  Thinking maybe I should've just sold the 40D and kept the lens.  Oh well.
