minolta 700si / 800si

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Photography Singapore : One Thread


I am thinking of getting a 700si or 800si instead of the newer models. There doesn't seem to be much of a used market around. Can anyone tell me approximately how much one in good condition would cost?

thanks, Ji

Hi there

I don't really know how much a 700si would cost but I have a 7xi complete camera system if you are interested. I have a 28-105mm minolta lens, sigma 75-300mm, sigma APO fixed 300mm (f5.6), professional camera bag, 3 boxes of cokin filter system, electronic cable release, several expansion cards for the 7xi etc. The camera is in mint condition and I have recently brought it back to Minolta for a complete service and change of the plastic grip (that alone cost me $168).

The reason why I sent it for service as I had not touched it for some time and wanted to revive my interest. However think I decided to give it up in the end.

If you are interested, I am prepared to let it all go for $500/-. Do drop me a note if you are interested.

Best regards

Hi , be careful of this black shop in singapore. "I HAVE BEEN CHEATED" $390 which cost only $89 for the vitacon lens.

i have bought vitacon 0.45 x wide angle with sony dcr-pc330e video cam and VF-R37K Filter kit in singapore at (song brother) 1 rochor canal road sim lim square #01-59/60. The sale man (name call Stefan gwee) char me for the total price of the three item at SGD$2614 including 5% GST.(TOTAL AMOUNT IS $2490) on 4 jul 2004.

The sony dcr-pc330e video cam in sim lim square shop cost about Sgd$2050 (GST not include ) as i tour around to ask for it price. The sony dcr-pc330e video camcorder itself which (song brother shop) charg me about Sgd$2050 (GST not include). Then VF-R37K Filter kit about SGD$50 GST not include. Which mean the vitacon 0.45 x wide angle cost me about $390 GST not include.

I then found out that the Vitacon 0.45 x wide angle in another shop at sim lim square (Edison electronics 01-43/45) cost only $SGD89 for the same models of the lens.

i have been cheated. i still have the receipt on my hand to prove that these three item cost me SGD$2490 GST NOT include.

As i look carefully for the description on the receipt it is written as (GROBARTING 0.45X WIDE ANGLE VIDEO LENS).
