    Trading Equipment

    Hi apug
    Firstly, I know that APUG does not condone trading outside of it's buy and sell forums and I'm not going to ask to trade people here.

    Secondly, where can someone, like myself, look to trade for a nice interchangeable lens rangefinder? It seems that northern Ohio has nothing for camera trading, but everyone sure wants to sell me all their stuff for 300% mark-up.

    I'm looking for basically anything but a Leica (considering that Leica bodies cost heads above what other comparable bodies cost). Leica-mount lenses are okay, though, because lenses *can* be cheaper than bodies. If I can find a Leica for a steal, though, I would grab it in a heartbeat.

    I am looking for a camera to use as a general carry-around camera or street-camera and a Rangefinder seems to be exactly what I want. Right now, I will be using a Minolta X700 and the wonderful 45mm f/2.

    I'm looking for something in the range of:
    Zeiss Ikon ZM, Voigtlander Bessa R line-up, Konica Hexar RF, Minolta CLE, Canon line-up, Nikon line-up, and probably many others that I don't know of off the top of my head.

    More bells and whistles (like metering at ISO 3200, framelines for different lenses, high flash sync, really sexy looking, etc) are appreciated.

    So where should I be looking?

    Why don't you become a subscriber, and look for a trade here on APUG?

    No-- APUG, subscribe, and visit the classifieds. BTW, you only need to subscribe to post ads, not for accessing them to respond.

    ....and by the way subscribing helps support what you have considered worthy of 76 posts plus what ever number you have read. That is to say nothing about the articles and galleries and great new friends at least I have made. I think it is worth it, but your mileage may vary.
