Check this out:
My message to seller:
I am local. Could I preview the camera kit, please?"
His message to me:
"Sorry, I do not allow previews."
Oh well. The guy must be a weirdo or something to ask that much and then not let someone five miles from him come see the darned thing. Darned shame. I really wanted to see what the 980 is like in person, and try to talk him down if I liked it.
Honestly, however, I don't need all that kit. I just need the camera, a lens board, and a 6x9 back for now.
