    I love my F5, but I'll let you know how I feel about it after a month or so of shooting my new F6.

    Down to $400!

    About half the price I got my first used one just 2 years ago!

    But heck, I've shot a lot of rolls through that camera!

    I must be looking in the wrong place! It seems that I can't find a mint or near mint F5 for under $800.00.

    At a local camera store, in Calgary? The local camera store I shop at here tries to sell used cameras for close to 80% of their original value, and the last time I brought in a mint SLR as a trade-in, they offered me 1/3 of it's value. It's highway robbery trying to buy/sell used equipment with them. She got a real good deal!

    It was at The Camera Store in Calgary. They have another one there for the same price but not in as good a shape as this one.

    I saw two Canon eos 1n at a garage sale this summer for $300 each.

    Hey Robert,
    Welcome to the F6 club. My guess is that you'll love it.
