They seem bent on cornering the market by garnering all the available stock which is great for them and sucky for we who can only afford to wish. Time to bid farewell to analog firesale bargains. They seem to be history.
    I think people are reading way to much into this...

    If you are willing to ship internationally you can get a lot more money for your gear on ebay than selling to KEH or any other used gear retailer.

    I think a lot more people are going that route and that leaves less available for KEH.

    Let's also keep in mind that the bix exodus out of MF film gear by professionals occurred 4-5 years ago and that swell of inventory had to work its way out of the market sooner or later.

    I've always found KEH's inventory to get a bit depleted towards the end of the holiday season, anyhow.

    Looks like your signature line is correct.

    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    They were here in Milwaukee at a camera store and in Chicago at the swap meet on the same weekend and were mainly buying..Evan
