    Difference b/t RB67 and Pro-S designated RB67

    What is the difference b/t RB67 and Pro-S designated RB67.

    I have a chance to buy a pro-s for $600 w/ 90mm lens, non-metered prism, 2 120 backs, 2 darkslides, a 77mm Red filter and a lens hood.

    With some careful buying from e**y, I bought the same items, excluding the filter, for about $400. Condition and any offered warranty could make a big difference price.

    Hit return too fast. :-) Have you noticed the RB kit that someone is selling on APUG? I would seem to be a better deal......

    Here it is: http://www.apug.org/classifieds/show...hp?product=209

    The listing does not say ProS, but if you look at the photo of the side up close, at least the body is. I might want to make sure that it has a ProS back as well. It has two lenses and a prism. Pretty nice set up.

    Tx Paul.

    I keep telling my friend hes not going to get 600 for it. Maybe 500 since its in immaculate condition (10-20 rolls put through, and that might be pushing it), but I've seen the exact same kit(even w.o the lens) on ebay for $400-500.

    Well - not so fast: a pristine ProS is very likely to fetch that much. And it would be worth every penny to a person who cares about the cosmetic condition of his gear (and many people do). The one here on APUG is an exceptional deal (as in: I woud be buying it right now if I had the cash!). Most of the ones that go for that much on eB@y are not as nice, usually not ProS's and often come with a 220 back (a dirty trick I noticed with a lot of them that advertise "2 backs!", 220 film is not the easiest film to get your hands on...).
    Your friend may very well get his asking price due to the condition - but for someone looking to get a "user" in good mechanical condition, yes, there are better deals out there. But few if any as good as the one on our classifieds.

    And one more thing: buy one - you'll love it!

    check out www.keh.com. I'm much more comfortable buying from them than from people on ebay.

    Two monthe ago I bought proS starter kit (body, 120 magazine, WLF and 127/3.8) for about 500EUR. Keep in mind I am in Europe, where proces are higher than is USA, and another reason for buying at that price is I know previous user/seller and I know man who maintained that equipment. And it comes in great working and cosmetic condition. Want to say I was ready to pay more for reliable source, instead to try luck on net, and maybe to be in need to pay for additional CLA or even repairing.
