    No one in particular. But seeing that things like the 10D is in shortage, I wondered what if you've just bought one and someone offered high price to buy it off you.

    just like there are silly sellers who price their stuff ridiculously high, there are silly buyers who will buy from silly sellers. only thing is, we probably can't find such a silly buyer in Clubsnap.

    I believe there were some silly buyers buying D60 or D100 at $3888 in Harvey Norman when the 10D is arriving in days.

    Seen a foreigner buying a D60 in AP one week before the 10D launch. Paid $3400+ for it some more.

    That's nothing.

    I paid $3450 for a D100 1 day before the 10D is available for purchase.

    my deepest condolences. but what has happened has happened. time to move on, and time to shoot in remembrance of money that used to be yours.

    Of coz, the rationale being "What good is a cheaper and possibly better (that I don't know) Canon when I can't use my lenses on it?"
