    I want one too (but I'll never afford one, Bessas only for me).

    Just curious, what's a decent price on a used one?
    $5k gets you a brand new one at B+H, so is something around $3.5-4k just-average or a bargain?

    I keep seeing your ads about wanting to buy a MP. What exactly are you after? Ebay is full of them every day of the year.

    As far as I know the chrome MP is only available with the 0,72x finder magnification.

    I paid about £1700 for mine, if I recall correctly. That was a Black Paint model with a little brassing.

    and be done with it. In a few years the price won't hurt that much at all. :laugh:

    after a well priced MP! ebays MPs are way overpriced. over 3500$ and closer to 4500... (USD of course)

    One between 2500-3000. A little extra for 0.58.

    Bought a used black MP .72 for around $2500 a few years ago but I believe those days are looong gone. I would think you should be expecting to pay >$3000 for one in good condition.

    I bought a really nice used black paint 0.85 one about 6 or so years ago. Still had 1 year of passport warranty on it too. Only had one small nick next to the hotshoe where someone slipped with a viewfinder or flash or something. Otherwise pretty much mint with the plastic still on the bottom plate. Paid $1900 USD from Tamarkin in NY. Corners and edges are starting to brass up nicely otherwise it still looks great. I think 0.85 is only available under a la carte now.
