    I have the Bronica EC, fantastic camera system but awful heavy for me. Tried the SQ-A, had two but both had problems but really like the 6x6 negative.

The S is just a cheaper version of the S2 without a removable back. For what it's worth I've seen several sell through dealers for over twice the price your looking at. If it's in good working condition that is indeed a good price.
    Yeah and I had 2 S2A, 1 S2. The S2 stopped working even though I am gentle to it, it just simply broke, transport gear broke, viewfinder cover defected, speed setting brroke, all at the same time. S2A still works well.
    My S2A is 100 EUR, my EC TL with 50 and 75 Zenzanon, 2 backs are 150 EUR, so 130 for S is just simply expensive.

    I wish I could get an ECTL that cheap here and the states I can't find a good one under $500, S', S2's, and S2A's go for $250-$450. So I was basing prices off that, I have no idea what the market is like in europe.

    At the start of this year, I bought an S2 with the standard Nikkor lens for £225 (US $378).
