I think the low stock and the higher prices are due to the pandemic. Higher demand with more people shooting film and supply is down because of lockdowns and reduced output from the manufacturers. My local camera shop is having trouble getting new film stock. Getting hold of chemicals for processing film isn't easy either.

Had to add another display cabinet, most of these have been tucked away in storage tubs. I could probably for more inside. I did pick up a Canon EOD 650 but the 50 1.8 needs attention, got a roll of Kodachrome 64 too.

The K1000 may be repairable but it will need a new prism and a bit of a service a bond the battery chamber is completely missing. The LT-1 works but has an iffy power switch, the two OM2sp cameras are working but one of them has an issue where it won't latch properly if wound too fast. The ME Super also works fine. You got any spares JR? I did see a stand covered in cameras but they were all plastic point and shoots.
