    I was watching a body only Nex 7 on Ebay, and the price didnt seem to move all day. You know when you think....last minute all hell will break loose. Er, it didn't. I am now the proud winner of said item for £510. Is that good? The seller has 100% positive feedback and says the body is in pristine condition, screen protector and all.....i'm scared now. I like the cutesy C3, but the 7 is, well....the NEX 7. :hail:

    Thanks Claire. Does that seem a reasonable price? we will have to scrap the C3 mummy club, in favour of the NEX 7 yummy-mummy club (if I actually like this copy, arrgh!) :p

    Pulling a Nianys!...I think we need to add that to the TalkNEX lexicon

    Yummy-Mummy, sounds just like us. Looks like we deserve NEX 7's ;)
    I can't tell about the price, not knowing the UK market, but that sounds pretty sweet if it's pristine. Just to brag a bit once lenses are sold mine will end up costing me about 520€, but it's not in perfect condition...

    Congratz! The NEX-7 is imho still the best NEX ever made - and if it's just for the awesome 24 MP sensor, the Tri-Navi and the AF/MF-button.

    Too bad I still have to save up for my next two lenses, so I'm not gonna be able to get a NEX-7 anytime soon ... ;(

    I wouldn't say crazy..."mercurial" might be a better word. TalkNEX wouldn't be the same without you. You are a fearless pioneer and jump in with both feet, hands, head and heart. It's what makes you...you.

    Yay, there are certain personalities that make this board what it is, you, Claire, are definitely one of the few.

    Haha :D


    And congrats Tracy!!!
    Although I "hate" you, cause I can't afford one, lol J/K :p

    I think £510 is a good price (I've been watching ebay.co.uk and looks like around that price is the lowest they sell for)

    Thanks Nick, I'll be interested to see if it's condition is as described, and if the Peaking is better than my original copy.

    Thanks for the kind words all :) Let's say I can be fearless in buying expensive camera equipment, which is VERY much a paradox, because I often agonize for entire minutes over a 1,50€ pack of yogurts while grocery shopping (the Gemini in me, probably...). Having an extensive experience in reselling unwanted stuff does help to be bold.
    Regarding the pillars of this community, I think most of them (us) might have a little more computer time on our hands, which helps us contributing a tad more. Anyway it's cool to be part of the club ;)
    Nick don't worry, the 7 prices are coming down pretty steadily now, and as soon as the new version is announced in a few weeks, they're really gonna crash...

    Youre right Markus, I get my credit card in trouble doing silly things like this recently. Up until this camera (read Nex) fascination ive always been very cautious about buying things.

    I bought my 7 kit used but complete in box in perfect/pristine condiditon truly barely used for about 725 USD not sure how that compares to euros. I just did the conversion, you got a great deal.

    I'm excited to get it now. I've had a good day; I sold my C3 and my mum came to visit, bringing a new laptop! I'm smiling :D
