    Damn right it does!
    I mean look at the Hasselblad stuff: prototypes, space model, 1600 outfit, for next to nothing (comparatively).
    sigh, I wish I had a few thousand euros to spare...

    How does it work?
    I mean, how do you bid on something?

    Worth a visit if you are in Vienna - was there last autumn. They have 2 shops, one for the new Leicas and another one next door for secondhand cameras, a real Aladin's cave. In addition they have in the back a really good Exhibition/gallery centre. There is a great collection of cameras (even the Hasselblad that was on the Moon - OK I don't know if it is the real one..... )They often have talks and exhibitions of famous photographers (I think Lessing was there to mention one). I was lucky to visit it in peace before opening hours thanks to an acquaintance that is a good friend of the owner. Check the link http://www.westlicht.com/index.php?lang=5, there details of previous exhibitions etc.
    "A photograph is not created by a photographer. What he does is just to open a little window and capture it. The world then writes itself on the film. The act of the photographer is closer to reading than it is to writing. They are the readers of the world."

    All of the Lunar Hasselblads are still up there, free for the taking.
    Just gotta go pick 'em up.
    There were some that were in orbit that were returned to our little blue ball though.
    Heavily sedated for your protection.

    The list for the next auction isn't up yet, they're still taking new entries. But I agree that it's a dangerous place to watch.
