    if you want a 100& manual SLR get a canon f-1 (if you want to stick with canon)

    www.keh.com > * for used stuff


    They always underrate their products, so if it only says good condition, it will come like new.

    I may be selling my rebel G2 soon, but you prolly need yours rather quickly.

    I have one... Nice camera, just picked it up recently to replace the rebel g2.

    Needed something that would go along good with my 1dsmk2. :mamoru:
