USD 15,995.95 for 645Z + 3 lenses + a custom case.
A good deal for medium format digital.

Has anyone noticed the impact damaged 645Zs on ebay lately? last one went for a bit over 1500 USD. Precision charges 800 to repair. For a bit over 2300 USD (provided the damage could be repaired in the 800 dollar estimate) one could have a 645z!

The repairs could be a lot more than 800 if the damage is much more - maybe the sensor will need to be replaced too!

Given Precision's reported incompetence you'd be lucky to get it back, working right, after 2-3 trips there.

Indeed.. that is the risk involved. Perhaps door number 1 has an all expenses paid cruise around the world behind it. Or.. perhaps it has a lifetime supply of Spam.

And you will probably be an old, retired ex-photographer after they send it for the third time by foot to a Japanese repair facility.
