The advance of tech means that old gear is becoming affordable much faster. The original 5D sells for about $550 AUD and the Mark II for a few hundred more. They take images which still hold up now; I still use my 5D II for photos when clients want them. Mattias Burling on YouTube has many videos about the great bargains to be found in digital cameras. And yet film Leicas in good condition still cost thousands.
