    I don't think there is an area for selling items. Out of curiosity.... why would one sell such a marvelous camera? Did you upgrade to the mark IV?

    Jeff -
    I got it from a friend of mine -- I love my 7D too much to part with it -- and the boss(wife ) says no to the second body while this is a hobby.
    Know anybody interested -- it has only 51XX clicks on it -- and it is pristine -- like new not a scratch or nick on it!

    The 7D is nice, but the 1D3 has the legs on it in many areas. The only reason I parted with mine is because I stepped up to the 1Ds3.

    Why not try amazon.com or ebay to sell your equipment and use your best shot as a testimonial to the functionality of the camera?

    Although this site doesn't have a sale section there are US based photo forum sites which do allow members to offer sale items.

    Thanks all -- I just thought my old eyes (and brain) were missing the ""for-sale" section.
    I have it advertised on Craigslist and another photo site .
    Thanks again ,
    Mark

    A few bits of advice for selling a valuable item on craigslist...

    1. Don't give out your address...
    2. Don't give out your phone number unless you are absolutely sure that it cannot be connected to your address. Some USA Google (and other search engine) searches for phone numbers will provide the address connected with the number...
    3. Meet in a public and busy place...
    4. Accept only cash - no checks or money orders...
    5. It would be nice to meet near your bank so you can deposit the money immediately...
    6. If possible, try to have another person, preferably a male, accompany you to the sale location...
