Thanks Chris,
I am extremely skiddish of e-bay, especially when it comes to dropping a couple or three grand. ZGC keeps looking better by the minute...especially for my piece of mind. Anyone reading this remember 1. don't be cheap 2. Reputable sellers are EVERYTHING. 3. Good, solid equipment will eventually pay for itself 4. Go to the Watchdog for honest straightforward information!!!!!

To say nothing of the fact that you have to pick from whatever people are selling at the time, which is very likely not to include your particular special set of specifications, since you are looking for something special. I went the eBay route and found a used XL1 to avoid taking the depreciation hit on new equipment, and I really didn't know at the time how much usage I'd be getting out of it, this being a new service I was offering through my department and there was no history. Now I know that it keeps me pretty busy and has caused me to travel quite a bit for the company. Which means I could have bought a more expensive (as in brand new) cam, but that's 20/20 hindsight.
