View Full Version : priced to sell?
it says priced to sell - 10 minutes to go and not a bid yet!
i think not priced to sell.
canon p (http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=3834750575&ssPageName=STRK:MEWA:IT)
Nearly all of the items from this seller, who operates under several IDs, are overpriced. Note that it's missing the lever for the rewind crank. That makes it an automatic 9 (not the 9.5 the seller gives it).
Also, the seller doesn't show the shutter curtains, which is a must with a focal-plane shutter camera, particularly certain models of Canons.
Isn't the lever just folded down?
Pretty camera but a couple of hundred dollars overpriced.
Damn, you made me look at eBay! ;)
i can't tell about the lever, if i had to guess i'd say it looks like it's there.
I think the rewind crank is there, but folded down, discretely out of sight.
The items sold by this seller usually are terribly overpriced. It always makes me wonder if they ever break even at least... There must be a lot of people who don't know the price for their stuff.
Better shut up... I wasn't too knowledgeable a while ago...
Oh! BTW, the camera didn't sell.
I had a canon 7 w 50mm 1.8 a few years ago.
I fond it to be too heavy and awkward to hold,the 50,which for the whole year I've owned the camera, I only took one roll of film,was not a very sharp lens,so I keep my Canonet GIII and sold the 7 for about $300,did I loose anything? because I read you guys seem so into it(Old Canon RFs).
i have always liked canon cameras even their slrs. they seem to fit my hands well and i've never had a breakdown with one.
the canon p feels great to me and while i have smallish hands i prefer a bigger (not big) and heavier set up. it took me a long time to learn how to shoot with the bessa r and 35 lens because it is too light for me.
the 50/1.8 seems to be very sharp to me. i will learn more about it as i use it more.
maybe your rig was too heavy for you and therefore you may have had a hard time holding it steady, like me and the bessa.
i don't think you lost anything though, a camera has to feel comfortable to you or why bother with it?
The rewind crank is complete, but the price is faaar to high.
Got my Canon-P in a similar good condition together with working "Canon-Meter" and a foggy 1.8/50-lens for USD 350... 8 months ago.
