Anyone suggest best price for a MRC1?

Hi guys, need to get a MRC1 in next week or so, best price I can find on earth is about $650.00 Australian.

They do crop up from time to time, both here and at B&H, used for about $500US or so. Have you looked on eBay?

Hey Adam
Yep, a Chinese wholesaler on EBay is the best price so far.
I know warranty will be sketchy, but it's about $300 less than retail in these parts.
Almost bought a z7p (missed out by an hour) just to get a mrk1 with the plan of keeping the cam I liked best out of that and my z5.
Looks like eBay it is.....

The phrase "Chinese Wholesaler" strikes me as a red flag. If the unit is counterfeit and doesn't work, then it isn't a bargain.

Lol, yeah I know. The only saving grace is that he's sold a fair few and has very good feedback and is a power seller.
