    For that price getting on a plane would be almost worth it. (looks like 600 RT on Southwest)

    Someone around Denver should be snapping that up. Looks like a better deal than my last CL Hasselblad find (which was quite good).

    I can't see the CL listing (it's been deleted), but there's a "Hasselbald" system selling on there right now.

    That said, I'm pretty proud of myself for finding my own great deal:

    I was looking for a Contax G2 on CL a few weeks ago. Tripped over a massive estate sale listed on CL featuring one at a great price. Well, of course the Contax was gone when I got there, but there was a basically new Hassy 503cx from 1990, a complete kit, for relative chump change, AND a Minolta 200mm f/2.8 APO G lens, also for relative chump change, and a ton of other stuff for, yes, chump change. I bought both items, and should have bought more, but the other stuff was out of my comfort zone knowledge-wise, and my checkbook was groaning.

    I sold the Hassy this week on eBay for a nice profit (I already have a 500c/m that I'm attached to), and the Minolta eBay sale ends tomorrow. Will clear enough to cover many camera expenses to come.
