    ebay Item number:
    111026752693

    Here is a very beautiful GX where the seller is brave enough to start with a low bid and no reserve.. letting the bidders decide the value.

    Very interesting... what is even more interesting is that that seller just sold that very camera yesterday, and re-listed it today (eBay item #111018703439). Sold for $2550.

    (I was tipped off in the description of the relisting: "PS this item is re-listed due to problem with shipping addresses")

    edit: also just noticed the shipping price went up by $10 on the new listing as well.

    I had the same dream and managed to make it happen pretty late in life; I bought a good clean 2.8E for about $800 that I use and enjoy a lot. There are options as it was mentioned above. Just keep an open mind and be patient. Cheers,

    Well at least if it was relisted that quickly you know it wasn't because the buyer was disappointed with the camera when he received it. 45.00 for shipping with insurance isn't out of line..

    Rolleiflex 2.8GX

    It's always suspect when something high end like this gets quickly relisted. Often can be a case where a seller shilled the price up using a shell bidder just to see where the prices were heading....

    Hi I have two TLRs from Rollei an old one from the beginning 50. is and a GX f2.8. Booth are good cameras the old one has no lightmeter in it. But needs also no batteries!
    I payed for my 1991 GX which was used from an amateur 2-3x a year 1800 USD. But I have it from here in Switzerland and I think you get it even cheaper from germany! My cheap old one has a self timer, its nice for some family shoots so all can be on the pic, it is with the Tessar f3.5!
    If you have time you will find a much cheaper one in my opinion!

    Cheers Armin
    Good light and nice shadows!
