It's noticeable that on ebay (the UK site) the less advanced, in relevant terms, Canon EOS bodies such as the 100, 300, 500 etc can be picked up for almost nothing. Usually just one bid for a starting price of anything from 99p to 5. But once a lens is included, then the prices realised are much higher. So it seems there is a demand for the lenses (possibly to use on Canon digital SLR's) but a big glut of unwanted bodies. Also quite a few bargain Minolta & Pentax AF SLR's too, but the Nikon AF SLR's seem to go for a bit more.
