The camera looks to be mint, but $700.00 seems way too high.

Bidding fever maybe?

Price seems way too high if the reserve hasn't been met yet.

It is a very nice camera, but I agree, that is a bit much.

Maybe the cutsie, folksy way the seller wrote the ad without really saying anything, and not guaranteeing a return, and berating the buyers that they better buy insurance, somehow convinced some desperate buyers they had to pay 3 times the going rate. Sheeze, I sold a mint looking IVSB the past year here, that had pinholes, for about $150.
