RC-760+lenses makes £720! EOS*DCS 1 makes £235

This Canon RC-760 outfit with

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... :IT&ih=018

-Canon BC-60N Battery Charger - Has a flat 2 pin plug and has 100V Input
-3 x Rechargeable Batteries
-Canon Speedlite 299T Flash Unit
-SV 11-66mm 1:1.2 Lens
-SV 50-150mm 1:2.8 Lens x 2
-SV 6mm 1:1.8 L Lens
-BW-58G Lens Shade
-BW- 67G Lens Shade
-BS - 58G Lens Shade x 2
-User Manual
-All of the above comes in a lockable hard plastic carry case

It was about £100 with a minute to go & thought I might buy it for under £200, but sold for £720 /about $1400 :shock:

The other one I missed out on was an EOS*DCS-1 which sold for £236 (nearly $500). It was sort of misleading as it was titled EOS-1D, with a Kodak digital back.

A very fine kit, indeed. With all the lenses and everything. Wow.

But £720!?

The last two bidders were obviously very keen to get it, raising the price from £333 to £700 and finally £720.

Would be interesting to know how many of these were made. All I know is that the RC-701 and RC-760 were much more common than Nikon's extremely rare QV-1000C kit.

RC-760 - how many were made?

I asked Canon Japan how many RC-701 and 760's were made/sold. Didn't expect to get a reply, but I did! Well done Canon, even if the answer wasn't very informative (no surprises there):
