[rollei_list] : Camera show decline

Lance, I know what you mean - the shows are definitely on the downslide.  My 
attitude is " I'll go to as many as I can, until they are no more".   I 
still have trouble understanding why someone would prefer buying blind from 
an eBay auction versus seeing & handling the goods.  Of course Camera shops 
with used gear are/ have gone the way of the dodo as well.
