    I've been watching Nikon F3HP and Nikon F2A prices for the past 5 years on eBay. Back between 2005-2008, I bought four F3HP bodies in excellent condition for $180~$220. Earlier this year, I bought another one for $190. Prices seem to be consistent for excellent F3 bodies. On the other hand, excellent + or better bodies go for significantly more.

    I also noticed that Nikon FE2 and FM2 bodies are priced pretty much the same as F3HP bodies in similar condition.

    These are my observations. Yours may vary.

    I recently picked up a completely functional Honeywell Spotmatic without a lens for only the cost of shipping ($7).

    My full camera bag weighs over 40lbs/18kg so my photo hikes are very good exercise!

    But with F-1's going for 200 I can't say they're going down. I keep hoping to pick one up for a song but alas, not to be... must be happy with my FTb bodies...

    Portra 400vc is gone? I loved that film shot it very recently. For a while it was the only thing I shot.

    I've been shooting the new Ektar 100 heard a lot of good things about it going to polish off two rolls this weekend I'll let you know how they go.

    I've noticed 35mm prices going up, call it sellers capitalizing on young college kids picking up 35mm. I see ads ALL the time on Craigslist "great student camera" "college course" "great for students" and cameras that were 50 bucks a few years ago are now 100.

    Maybe people are finally realizing that digital sucks 500 bucks on a film camera gets pro grade hardware and double that gets you in the door with digital

    I have one of these in black and mint condition. Now I'm tempted to sell.

    I have noticed a few intresting things going on:-

    Used cameras with a minor issue are being sold for next to nothing,

    What is happening? I think it is a case of cameras being too costly to repair, as a replacement can be bought for about the same as a repair bill. This is driving prices up a bit

    Pentax M series lenses that are going for sometimes twice or what they were 5 years ago, I watched a 85mm f2 go for over $400.00 ???

    and a K 50mm F1.2 go for more on Fleabay

    This is I suspect a Digital body retro lens trend of some sort, also Pentax 50mm 1.4 takumar screw lenses are be being bought in the $150-250 price range

    On the flip side I bought a 20mm F3.5 AI nikon for only $136.00

    I also fixed a Canon AE-1 and a Nikon FE that I paid $20 for.

    Prices have gone up on things I want to buy, but down on things I want to sell.
