Make sure you look through the viewfinder of a P before buying. The P used "reflected" frame lines that may or may not have aged well. Some Ps' are fine, while the viewfinders of others show quite a bit of flare. The Leica M and Canon 7/7s use projected frame lines so don't have this problem.
Take a look at the Canon RF sub-forum on RFF. Lot of discussion about the P there.
I can recommend a seller on the *bay named "jiri_e". He usually has one or two Canon P cameras for sale. He is well known and has a good reputation among Canon rangefinder enthusiasts.
The P's a winner (as are all the Canon Rangefinder bodies IMO). The P is a particularly good Canon LTM body for serious use - super build quality, relatively modern design, good looks, pleasing ergonomics. The ultimate is probably the VI-L, but it's hard to find and pricey.
Sounds all good but only problem is there aren't many available ...
Will keep looking.
Thanks, the seller has 1 P but not in good health.
