PZ-1p - Going Rates?

I've got a near-mint body I'm looking to get rid of to help fund a purchase for a K10d.

I've tried eBay but didn't find a good indicator what the current going rate is for a classic film body like this.

Any feedback is appreciated.

Hmm, if not more than $100 or so, I guess I'll hold onto it. Honestly though, I haven't touched film in 7-8 years since I went digital and I don't foresee myself going back...

I know it was a diffeerent time in 2003 when I bought my *istD, but I kept my PZ-1 because I didn't feel the selling price even them was worth letting the camera go.

it turned out to be a very good move. I shot both film and digital for 3 additional years, using the 18-35 that came with the *istD on the PZ-1 (the origonal kit lens was the full frame kit lens from the *ist film camera). I wanted really wide, and the crop factor of the ASP-C sensor made ultra wide difficult at the time

Now, even though I have added a sitma 10-20 and a K10D, I still keep the PZ-1 as a back up. It is a truely great body, has similar controls to my 2 DSLRs and it can make use of every lens I own.

Any time I want to shoot film, either B&W or color, I can.
