That is a good price given there is a "make offer" option.

I'm really tempted on buying that, selling the FA zoom, and getting a DA 40

I have seen a few go for around that price recently. I'm not buying -- just drooling.

Mine was $100 off craigslist. On the down side, the shutter button doesn't work. On the plus side, F 50/1.7! Taking the ist in tomorrow for a looksee, hopefully it can be fixed. Just an amazingly little package with my DA 40, although the current set-up shoting with a cable release is not so convenient.

Look at MZ-S

Keep looking :-). I guess people just hold to their *ist's, it's too cute. I personally didn't *ist that much, sold it and picked up MZ-S instead (and just love it!), but it's larger, very solid, not as round and aimed at "professionals". The shutter is very soft and quiet, I've gotten several 1.5 sec exposures with it (placing my elbows on the table in a dark restaurant) w/o any problems. I would say so far only K-7 more or less matches the MZ-S shutter. AF drive is very fast and decisive. For me it was a huge step up. As to dimensions (in mm), 122 x 84 x 63.5 335gr for *ist vs 136.5 x 95 x 64 520gr for MZ-S

Take a look at Dimitrov's site

So I ponied up $130 to get mine back into full working order - just about at the limit of what I would pay, but using the cable release defeated the whole point of the compact model. So $230 for a ist and an F 50/1.7, not terrible, right?
