I just found this book in my library at my parents' place.
Has it really become a collector's item ? The only copy I found on the net seems to be offered at an outrageous price.

Depends on what you deem to be outrageous, I suppose. One sold a few days ago on ebay for $45, final bid was placed two days before end of auction. I picked one up for $20 a few years ago, just AFTER I found somebody selling B&W reprints for a little more. <sigh> A fool and his money...

The only one I saw was at $85, in a bookshop, which seemed outrageous to me.

You can download it free, on Christian Rollingers Canon FD site, but the site is down at the moment for upgrading.

I looked under Camerabook.com and they had for $85 also. Which I tought it a little on the high side. If you ever check out some of the college book stores, some of their prices are outrageous on college textbooks!

It's not easy to browse a .pdf while you're sitting on the privy...

Reading the Canon T90 performance book on the "thunder box"!, what next the Gutenberg Bible, to Canon FD freaks this is sacrilege !

The great benefit to reading in the bathroom is if/when you run out of paper.
I keep mine stocked with copies of digital camera brochures and Moose Peterson's articles, just in case. :p

We used to sell the T90 performance book in my shop for 25 (about $15 US) new in 1986, since then they must have become quite rare in the last twenty three years, I don't think $86 for a good condition copy is too bad considering.

I think $50 for a mint, collectible-grade copy is just pushing the limit. I think $35 for a nice copy, to have and to hold from this day forth, is a decent price. Give it another 23 years and I may concur with $86 for a good condition copy. But then, something is worth what someone is willing to pay. So who am I to say?
