    Hard to say. There is a f1.8 lens that is more popular. A lot of this type
    of equipment will tend to sell the low prices. The AE prism seems to command
    the best price.

    I managed to pick up a base model 645, with the CDS prism finder, and an
    80mm 2.8 lens (with very slight fungus) for $400. I'd rate the overall
    condition as good, but the pictures I have produced in the few weeks I've
    had it (B&W processed here at home) are outstanding for one used to 35mm. I
    also recently picked up the 150 and 210 lenses, in almost mint condition for
    another $600.

    HTH.

    No. You could do much better, expect to pay between $450 and $700 for a
    complete camera depending on the finder.

    I have one for sale, $700 with the CDs Metering finder and the 80mm f2.8.
    Add $100 for a Waist level :)

    The 2.8 is the standard lens sold with the camera the 1.9 was not. Was
    there a AE prism for this camera? Mainly sold with either a PD, Cds or
    plain prism - meter coupled.

    Not to be confused with the AE prisms sold with the 645 Super.


    Expect to pick one up at about $500-600 mark.

    Not sure what they're worth but I had one a quite while ago with the 80 f2.8
    and the 35mm lens. The 80 f2.8 is an extremely sharp lens, I doubt you would
    be disappointed with it's performance.
