He's asking a paltry $150, which is patently crazy for such a proven, pro-grade, beautiful, functional and never-say-die camera. Double it to $300. These bodies go for about $560 here in Australia, more again with power drive booster E1.

Canon really turned a lot of photographers off with that silly, gimmicky 45-point centrally-clustered focus point selection design. It's the main reason I never moved from the workhorse EOS 1N, which I have now had for more than 20 years.
