Wow - that's quite a result for the seller. I'm amazed anyone would pay that sort of money for such an old (and totally unsupported) camera. Over 100k shutter actuations too !

With a start price of 315 all he needed was one bid. I guess his excellent sales pitch helped. Like Paul, I'm amazed someone took the bait. Good luck to them both

They sometimes seem to go for even more. https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_o...5&_sacat=31388

Is there a nostalgia asepect I wonder? People wanting to use the old HG / SHG lenses on the bodies designed for them?
