    Canon T90 Performance book

    << I'm not sure this is the right forum, feel free to move it as appropriate >>

    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...

    Whatever that's supposed to mean.

    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...

    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.
