Thanks Trask; I appreciate your candid reply. My reasoning was $700 for the body and $600 for the Rapidwinder. M2 prices have been all over the place and $700 seemed dead center for a very smooth-running camera. But I think an even better idea would be to find the baseplate (which I do have somewhere), then sell them separately. Oh well, no rush. Come springtime I may have found a reason to keep it.
