My "New" Canon EOS 1DX

The Canon EOS 1DX for Doug WestThe Canon EOS 1DX for Doug West (not the actual camera I'm getting)
 

With my refund money coming in, it was time to start looking for a used
Canon EOS 1DX. Originally, I was interested in the newer Canon EOS
5DSR, but after using the 1D body for years and doing quite fine with
the images I've already captured, I eliminated that camera.
 

On average, the 1DX is going for $3400-$3500, roughly. Average
shutter count would normally be over 100,000. Every once in awhile,
a 1DX would show up closer to $3000, but that was usually associated
with a higher shutter count and/or the body in bad condition.

Imagine my surprise when I saw one listed for under $3200, with a
brand new shutter, with ONLY 1500 clicks on it!

The first person who owned it, not the one currently selling it, just
decided to get a new shutter when it approached 110,000. There was
nothing wrong with it.

Great news for me! Obviously I jumped on it.
