I've been contemplating a Russian medium format lately, mainly because I've never tried one. Found one on an auction site that was here in the states, and a decent price "buy it now, OBO" . Sooo, I sent an offer, a few minutes later I get a counter for LESS than I proffered WTF! Oh, there's a message, "I tried the film advance and broke it, so if you want this you can have if for ..... " Damn man, he had it listed as excellent condition. Anyway, he removed it from the sale. I offered an even lower amount, maybe something simple that even I could remedy. Somehow I don't think he'll sell it to me.
