I'm in the market for a DSLR camera (Canon 7D), even though I've got the money there to buy one new, thought I'd buy one second hand and spend the money saved on a tripod and another lens. It turns out that I can't do this! People are buying these cameras used for more than than you can buy them new. This is on Ebay, they can be bought for even less direct from online retailers (UK ones too).
This is happening on other places where you buy second hand as well...if I tried to sell my bike on here for more than the new price, I'd be laughed at, onceinalifetime would say his usual bit and the pitchforks would be out!
So has anyone any idea what is causing this phenomenon? Are a lot of people too stupid to even do an internet search?
