    Worked with someone in Ukraine to have a K88 built by Hartblei (The original). Sent payment and after a few months started kicking myself for being stupid. Person no longer answered e-mails, wife considered killing me, the hartblei became unreachable, they changed hands, then 6 months after purchase it showed up. It has worked flawlessly for the last 9 years.

    I have been pretty lucky with camera equipment. I have not been so lucky with art off ebay. Bought a "#1 of 30 limited silk screen on cotton haida moon." that turned out to be a freaking bandana complete with sweat stains. Seller refused a refund even though they offered it. I contacted ebay and they never did anything. Only negative feedback ever left.

    My worst experience was the Mamiya C220 I bought on eBay a few months back. It leaked light like crazy and is waiting patiently at Carol Flutat's for repair. KEH's prices have become so good that I don't think I'll be using eBay anymore. I just received an RB67 from them in great shape for $360 after shipping. Probably not the cheapest price I can find but it is a good balance between price and peace of mind.

    The only person I've bought from here on APUG was Jim Galli. I don't think he's here anymore but he was a heck of a nice guy who always gave me a fair price.

    Hmm. The Rolleiflex I just picked up on eBay could end up as either the best deal I've ever gotten, or one of the worst. All depends on the repair quote...

    Oh you're breaking my heart! That was the one I wanted, but they were rare as hens teeth, when I was needing a WA, and the price - less than I paid for my 65mm. Will have to keep my eyes peeled for one of these again. . . . .

    Jim still visits regularly - the lens mine seems to be inexhaustible.
