I have both EOS 3 and EOS 1V. Both are professional grade and produce beautiful photographs. I bought the EOS 3 used from B & H for about $300.00 with condition 9 on the listing. What I received was an absolutely mint, rarely used camera with state of the art autofocus and metering. I think it is the best deal I have ever made and continue to cherish this amazing camera. I think you will find that a lot of original owners of these last generation film cameras used them for a very short time, then switched to digital. If you can find one, it may be the best money you ever spent, even if it is $300.00.
