Looking at the results, most people either bought a new 35mm less than 3 years ago, or more than 14 years ago. I guess that this last result is due to people moving to larger formats, and not using/needing their 35mm gear so much. But I'm just guessing...
My last purchase was a Minolta Maxxum 7, bought at B&H, USA, shipped to Portugal, payed customs, and still I was able to save almost 200 when compared to local price. Great camera (better than the Nikon F80 or the Canon EOS50 - yes, it's just cheap provocation...).
