Ted, you want to demonstrate that buying a new F6 makes no sense. I understand your point and I'm not forcing mine. Living where I live and taking all the facts into consideration, my conclusion is that it makes more sense to buy new. You disagree and I noted your point. Given your insistence, however, I have to remind you that in this thread I was asking my fellow RFFers where can I buy a new F6, not whether I should buy a new one or a second-hand one.
