Right now in the RFF classifieds - $1700 asking price for a M6 (sold), and $2000 for a M7. Why?
Asking prices are just that...
M6 Classic prices hovered in the $1000 range, plus or minus, for many years, going back to the early 2000s. I bought and sold many. The TTL was about $200 higher.
It's only recently there has been a spike.
And I bought a ZI off this site for $800 or so, back in 2008, or thereabouts. Boxed, limited edition!
How about the black Contax T3 I sold for $700, they are now going for $1500+.
