You are most likely right about eBay prices. But I have bought enough on eBay to know that it's a gamble. In this case I preferred to pay the "dealer-tax" and get one that I know will be OK. It is a 25 year old camera after all.

Even something as "simple" as a light meter can give problem when you can't inspect it beforehand. First Weston meter I bought was completely dead. Seller returned money and let me keep meter. Second one did meter something but not in any meaningful way. Third one (Sekonic) was a charm.
