    Hi All,

    My grandpa asked me to try to sell this equipment for him so he can put the money towards a new digital camera.
    1. Canon EOS 850 body, with manual, original strap, and rubber eyepiece cup - $65
    2. SOLD Canon EOS 620 body, with manual, Canon body cap, and red canvas Canon strap - $125
    3. Canon 35-70 f/3.5-4.5 lens, old style, with stainless steel lens mount and internal focus mechanism, no lens caps. (it's currently on the 850 body) - $50
    4. SOLD (darich)--> Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II (plastic lens mount) with Canon front & rear caps - $50
    5. SOLD (Bobby Ironsights) --> Canon EF 80-200 f/4-5.6 with, Hoya multicoated UV[0] filter, Canon rear cap, and old style Tamron front cap - $75
    6. SOLD (Bobby Ironsights) --> Canon Speedlite 200E flash with original Canon case. - $45
    If anyone buys all of it, I will throw in a nice aluminum case, a set of close up filters, and random (probably old) film.

    If you would like to buy more than one item, I will give a small discount.

    A bit of history

    Both of the camera bodies are from the late 1980s.

    My grandpa is the original owner of the 850. It is the predessor to the Rebel series. It is built more sturdily. It has no built-in flash and no manual modes. It has a steel lens mount. The Rebels actually feel like toys compared to this. The date on the instruction manual says 1987.

    <snip>


    If you Google 'EOS 850' you can find some information on it as well.

    The 35-70 is also a sharp lens, but is only really remarkable because it is an early version with the steel lensmount and the internal focusing.

    I don't have photos of the lenses, flash, and aluminum case, but I can provide them if there is interest.

    Below, are links to the photos of the camera bodies. You can guess what is in each link by the filename.

    The EOS 850 is really a point-and-shoot SLR. If you need a low-priced backup to your 35mm EOS body, look no further. You won't find one in better condition. Alternately, if you would like your significant other to be able to share your EOS lenses but they are just a point-and-shooter, this may be a great gift idea. Just be careful that they don't embarass you.

    The 50mm lens, 80-200mm lens, and 200E Speedlite have been sold.

    The EOS 850 "Point & Shoot" body & lens are still up for sale, as is the EOS 620.

    I don't expect a lot of reponse on the 850 and 35-70 here, unless it is for someone's significant other, who just wants an extremely high quality point & shoot.

    The 620, on the other hand, I'm surprised to see it sticking around so long. It is a pro grade piece without all the frou-frou stuff. Metal body, and there's nothing fragile about it.

    Thanks for looking!

    Jeremy

    the 50mm arrived on Saturday morning and i took a few shots with it yesterday. Nothing particularly tesing or spectacular but i'm sure i'll get something soon.

    Lens seems to be great. it's strange not having a zoom function and having move the camera to increase the size of the subject!!

    many thanks
    David

    OK - be honest, did you ever reach for a zoom ring and feel foolish when there was only a solid lens body? I know I occasionally do that with primes now!

    Thanks for the update & the feedback.

    Is the 35-70mm not an EOS EF mount?
