    Quite a pointless post, but let me humour you.

    In no particlar order:
    1) Buy already, realise you don't need such an expensive camera, money better off used elsewhere, so sell off quick b4 price drop.
    2) Cash flow problem, so sell off.
    3) GF/Wife/Mother/Dog give you grief on spending so much money on a camera, you succumb to the pressure and sell it off
    4) Sell to upgrade to 1Ds MkIII
    5) Sell to upgrade to medium format
    6) Join the other side (whiche ever side lah - whichever tickles your fancy)
    7) Give up hobby due to work commitments
    8) Give up hobby having found another hobby
    9) Give up hobby having given up on hobbies altogether
    10) Too few focus points
    11) Too few FPS
    12) Too few cross sensors
    13) No 100% VF
    14) No full weather sealing
    15) No built in flash
    16) 21 MP! Too few, Sony/Nikon has squeezed a bit more in.
    17) 21 MP! Too many! Buay tahan processing the files, still using P3...
    18) Black dot issue
    19) Too heavy, don't bring out a lot
    20) Not perfect

    The list goes on. Anyone else, please feel free to add on.

    25) 'Cause it can't drive me to work
    26) 'Cause it can't do so many things

    The Buy&Sell is no means for judging whether a certain piece of equipment is good or bad.

    i bought from a professional who bought an extra for a job... it was a decision for him to keep either 2x5D2 or 5D2+A900.

    he decided to keep A900 for its pros.

    there are many pros and many cons for 5D2, a lot has to do with personal preferences.

    I know.

    They sell it so that those who can't afford to buy it at a full price can now afford at second hand.

    It's call "charity".
