    I bought a Nikon F80 (black body) & 28-80mm lens from Warehouse Express about 4 months ago for £150, I also bought a Nikon EM (circa 1981 going by the serial number) from ebay a couple of weeks ago for the princely sum of £10 :D

    Kodak Retina IIIc in near mint condition from Rock Cameras at Milton Keynes market a few months ago. Wanted one since I handled one in the late '50s!
    Contax 167M & f1.7 Planar from Jessops when they were getting shot of s/h items, about 5 months ago. (Not as reliable as I'd hoped!!)

    EOS30V just over a year ago. Super combo of features. Slide exposure spot on, straight out of the shop (unlike my EOS3 - GRRRR!). Full frame view led to me shelling out for my EOS 5D a short time later, so it was a very expensive buy!

    And then there's the sheet film 5x4 monorail, last March.

    The disease is getting worse, more addictive, and I've run out of storage space.

    Oops! Message to self - Remember to read all the words in the thread title!

    My last NEW film camera was the EOS3 purchased about 6 years ago, and it should never have left the factory in the state sold to me. It suffered from under-exposure (fixable via the controls) and a hunger for 2CR5 batteries - fixed by Canon when I moved to digital 3 years ago. (They also fixed the exposure problem as well, and it's now a great camera - pity I don't use it anymore.)

    Well... I haven't bought it BUT I'm pretty sure Santa's got me a.....

    Science Museum Pinhole kit! (35mm)

    If I get any sort of results, I might then treat myself to a Nikon BF-1a and some tubes.
