K-1 Secondhand prices.

I noticed today that SRS Micosystems have in the last couple of days reduce the price of secondhand K-1s from 1299 to 999. Perhaps this gives the chance to get a K-1 II for a reduced price by doing upgrade on one of these. I have my daughters wedding to help shoot next month and thought I couldn't afford a second body, I'm not sure now.

That sounds like a good deal. But on the other hand, you'd get warranty + longevity from a brand new unit, which might also be worth it.

Sounds like a no-brainer to me then, regardless of whether or not you go for the upgrade.

With some credit cards, you may be able to double that coverage to 2 years.

Adding the $500 for upgrade will push the price up to within few hundres $s of a brand new K1II.
The price of the body is just the starting point, any good lens for FF will also cost a lot more, something to consider. Thus in total system cost, not much savings

Some credit cards , mainly from Citibank, will even add 2 years warranty, for a total of 3 years. However, generally, these policies are based on the manufacturer's warranty, or any warranty contract you purchase. Not sure if a store warranty would be eligible. Citi will add 2 years up to 7 years if the base warranty or contract is eligible.
