I am an ebay junkie.  35mm cameras have gotten even cheaper recently.  The Good Stuff is still expensive ( like the Nikon F2As and the Zeiss Contarex-es ...and the old Voigtlander Prominents ) , but lots of goodies are going dirt cheap.  I see Nikon N80s in mint condition for, like, $59 and up!!  

I see a couple of Russian knock-off Contax rangefinders on ebay this week.  Counterfeit ones...Bucky  I always wanted to get one of those fake Contax rangefinders....but, I understand they are of variable quality depending on when they were made.

Here's a little counterfeit!!   Eek


$110 plus $28 shipping from the Ukraine!   

 

A few years ago I bought a nice Gossen Luna Pro light meter from somebody for $ ONE DOLLAR!!!  [ plus ten dollars postage...Whatever ]

Remember loading film when the black bear was standing up in Yellowstone Park?  And you missed the shot?
