Keith - I notice you were the only bidder which gives a clue about the price
/ demand. The seller offers a 10 day money back guarantee if not as
described. but since you bought it 11-20 the time may have run out. You
could threaten Hollowood Camera with a bad feedback and perhaps they would
make an $100 adjustment for the repair of the viewer.
I have sold a number of items on eBay and always look at the completed sales before listing to see if it is worthwhile. Every so often I buy a camera outside of eBay thinking I got a good deal only to find that eBay has competitive prices.
If you really wanted to get into the Rollei you night want to consider a T, like Bob Shell has. The Rollei Magic has some of the features of Rollei but in my opinion is not "main stream" but more of a novelty because of the automatic feature. There are 2 models of the Magic, if you have the "2" or the latest you can use it without the automatic feature if the meter goes out. I think most Rollei Magic owners on this list also own "regular" Rolleiflexs and most seem happy with their working Magics.
Don't feel too bad about this deal ... many of us have had similar situations. Since I have been on this list I have received much guidance in buying Rollei stuff.
