    Before turning to Keh and eBay, I thought I'd ask here. I'm looking for a Canon New F-1 in good condition, preferably with the AE finder. It should (obviously) work perfectly, cosmetics are less important, though a good looking one would be nice. I know that this camera is demanding collector prices, so I am willing to pay accordingly (can't afford ridiculous prices though).
    I'm not a collector, I use my cameras to shoot, not to look at behind glass. I live in Belgium, Europe.

    Thanks for looking!

    Hi Walter,

    I have just spent this morning looking around for ways to seel my beloved Canon gear. I have two F1n AE bodies in very good condition. (one has slight brassing) on the backplate). I also have a waist level finder and a basic FN finder, and PE & PL focussing screens.

    I also have an FN winder, and FD (not old SSC) Canon prime lenses - 15, 17, 50 (1.4) 24, 28, 35, 85 (1.8), 135 (1.8) 200 (f4) and300 (5.6) lenses with filters.

    I used to be a very prolific amatuer, and had my cameras serviced regualrly, but stopped whewn I lodst my job related darkroom (redundancy).

    I live in the UK, and can be contacted by e-mail - andrew@andrewperry.plus.com

    Regards, Ol' Andy

    I don't have a Canon F1 n, but if you're interested in an AE motor drive FN with high power Ni Cad pack, charger and a dummy battery, I have one for sale. It has low miles on it.

    Still looking for one. I can't buy at KEH because their PayPal system is broken and they won't do anything about it :sad:
