FS: Ebony SV45TE and Alpa 12SWA body / accessories
« on: September 14, 2012, 02:13:29 PM »

I have a bad habit of buying new cameras before I sell my old ones, and it's finally time to clean house. I have several items for sale.

Ebony SV45TE - $2300

Great camera in very good condition. All movements and spirit levels intact and working properly. Includes original gridded Ebony ground glass and ground glass cover. Also has the upgraded leather universal bellows, which are and additional $450 alone. Some normal wear marks here and there but still in great shape.

Alpa 12SWA w/ black handgrips - $3300

Purchased brand new from Jeff Hirsch at Fotocare in NYC. Includes serial number and all original Alpa packaging. In perfect working order and excellent condition with only a couple minor scuffs and normal signs of use.

Alpa Viewfinder - $1200

Also purchased new from Fotocare. In mint or 'as new' condition with absolutely no signs of use. Has a custom Alpa viewfinder mask with marks for shift and rise/fall on a 58mm lens. It's removable of course. All original Alpa packaging included.

Alpa Ground Glass Back - $400

Purchased new from Fotocare as well. Has one very small crack in the far top left corner of the gg itself, but does not affect the image area. Besides that, it's flawless. Original Alpa packaging included.

Yet another round of price reductions:

Sale fell through on the Ebony, so I'll take another $100 off

Ebony SV45TE - $2000
ALPA 12SWA - $3100
ALPA Viewfinder - $1150
GG Back - $325

I feel as though all these prices are more than fair and wish I'd found the same deal when I purchased it myself.

So all that's left is the SWA body and the viewfinder. Recently another member had the same black handled SWA in comparable condition listed at $4290 and just marked the item as SOLD. $3100 is a steal.... A new SWA will set you back $5129 these days.

I bought Ebony SV45TE from Todd and have just received the camera. It is in a pristine condition.
Todd is a nice, honest guy and I highly recommend him.

Received the SWA from Todd in good conditions. Well packed, and item as described. The package had a delay and the tracking information confusing, all faults of USPS. Todd was kind enough to respond even during his vacation overseas. Thanks Todd for the excellent communication and efforts.
