Adorama has one for $5800 for crazy low hours. https://www.adorama.com/us 1238705.html?sterm=3G1Tv825AxyORsMxU-SAVSQkUkixg-3MEzbZSU0&utm_source=rflaid912994

Only thing is though the internal 4K option is needed for the F5 to be worth the difference. Without it it's only HD internal.

That's the downside to it having so few hours, no paid firmware upgrade!

There is a hack for the f5 to unlock 4k. Sony eventually released a firmware to do that as well. 

The hack is a pain in the ass though!

I started out shooting a feature film (never finished, the director had a minor distraction... his relationship fell apart) with a Sony F5 which lacked 4K! So I had to do the hack. Took me a while, and the big downside is: NO PLAYBACK! That is a heck of a serious downside. (my work around was an SDI recorder, which would automatically trigger a ProRes LT file every time I rolled on the F5, then we could use the Atomos for playback)

That hack however did embarrass Sony enough to release the firmware upgrade, however that is a paid update!
