The *ist is a highly specified SLR, but beware that some parts are unavailable. Mine failed and despite it being in pristine condition had to be scrapped.

I would go for an MZ5/MZ3/MZ6 option instead.

Hi Christopher - anything under 100 is a good price. I have sold both of mine on ebay in the last year and got 130 and 140 for them. I have seen them go as low as 65 but rarely in the condition I would want.

An MZ-7 would be cheaper on the wallet

True - or even an MZ6 or 5n

Thanks for your help I ended up buying a MZ-7 with 28-80mm zoom 46.55 and
a Sf7 body for 10.99 I will keep me eye out for a *ist at a resonable price. Just need to buy some decent lenses now.
