But 450 USD is a little bit too much for a DS-515. Also when the included AF-Nikkor 4.0-5.6 70-210 mm is considered.

It got 2 bids and sold; I like to see evidence that interest in these cameras is growing, it's just nice to think that others are interested, and who knows, maybe they will eventually actually be worth a bit. They really should be, once people stop thinking of them just as obsolete cameras and realize that they are extremely rare (seems to me from the serial number database that less than 2000 or so in total across all models were built) early transitional Nikons. At least I can hope so :)

Lets not forget, these things were sold for stupid prices when new, something along $10,000 or more :shock: :shock:

$450 is cheap....

The result of the auction of the initially mentioned E2s: 1139 USD. For those, who read this thread later and cannot find the auction listing: The E2s was described as "in full working order and great cosmetic shape". The complete (or more than complete) accessory was included (2 batteries, 6 memory cards, 2 card readers). And the auction included a Kodak DCS 200.

I think the accessory was the reason for the very high price. The E2/E3 cameras are often sold with incomplete or without accessories.

I think that must be it. I am still impressed by the sale amount. I had thought about bidding myself--it is a particularly complete outfit, and I really liked the original boxes. You can tell these were limited production items--no fancy graphics etc, just plain white boxes with some printed info.

Auction ended in the middle of the night!

I would easily have bid up to $300, but just couldn't stay up that late.

Someone got a great deal.

I still use these cameras in photomicroscopy, especially the DS-565 and E3. Their resolution almost exactly matches that of higher magnification microscope objective/projection eyepiece combos.

The large pixel wells and relative lack of "crispness" is less important than maximum native resolution in this app.

Regarding this last one (no 5200072), the seller wrote: "We are told that only #125 of these cameras were produced."

I asked if they had more info or documentation, but as expected - they didn't.
