I am so bummed about this! I bought a DSLR (Sony Alpha). I had 2 minolta maxxums. One old one, that had a broken LCD screen, but still awesome. And a newer one, in perfect condition. I decided that since I had the DSLR, I didn't need both maxxums. My older camera works fine, so I figured I'd sell the newer one, make a few bucks. I bought it less than a year ago for $27 on ebay, spent $15 for a new battery cover, and $10 for the batteries. Put this on ebay, starting at $16.99. Figured it would go up. Sold today for............$17.49. ! Is this the economy? Or the ever decreasing cost of DSLRs?
