    Is it from CS member the sale ? You can check out Peninsula Shopping Centre
    Camera Workshop lots of film cameras for sale. You'll be spoiled for choices.

    yes, seller was a CS member, but he sold on ebay. even bring the price down to $180 boday+lens+bag+flash (after many days, flash was sold)

    really cheap right? $200 with lens inclusive. where to find now

    No point crying over spilt milk; there are lots of film cameras out there that are cheap, and you won't be restricted because you already have an army of lenses from one system. Have a look around the Peninsula area, you might find something you like for a bargain.

    And yes, plenty of us still shoot film

    there are many film users here, however, not everyone uses f80

    if you think it is good it will be fine. there are always compromises. who cares what other people think?

    precautions? you just need common sense.
