I have had only good transactions on Ebay.
All these cameras and lenses were obtained there, and everything works perfectly - some items are in mint condition.
but, and you may already be aware of this, after you click on the "film cameras" category and the 13,9998098090 things come up all you have to do is scroll down a little and check "large format" - or whatever - in the "type" filter, which reduces it to the 100odd cameras.
not too much trouble, no?
Do you mean there are APUG people still using eBay? - Tie them to the mast and flog them!!!
