Notice: I've been having a hard time coming up with prices-- it sometimes gives me a panic attack. I've put a number of items on eBay. I'm getting better though-- If I find completed sale prices on eBay, it helps. Of course I'll consider offers. If you write me I'll let you know when I put items of interest up. Please excuse me if I'm slow responding.

I have photographs of most items, though I haven't put all of them online.

Price references: The best is eBay's completed auctions, but Midwest Photo Exchange | Keh | Adorama are also of interest. Vladimir Antonov's Canon FD eBay Price Guide is usfeul, though prices have dropped somewhat since May 2003.

From Adorama's grading system:
