I would (and have) paid good money for used film cameras and lenses...

In the last few years I've acquired a 1964 Leica M2 ($750) and Mamiya RZ kit ($1500+)...actually by the time I sold off the RZ lenses I didn't want, I ended up getting the camera for free. Also an Ebony 45s ($1500) and Mamiya 7...

I'd do the same tomorrow for a nice Hasselblad and/or Rollei and/or 8x10 setup...

This is a great time to be a buyer of film cameras, esp now that the economy is sinking, a lot of folks may be having a fire sale...
