Used Camera Equipment Traders

This is a few used photographic equipment traders that I have found online that actually stock some Minolta equipment. Obviously the lists change constantly so I would suggest checking regularly for any new bargains. The authors of these pages would like it known that they have not used any of these businesses personally so they cannot comment on their reliablity or quality [exception: Chris has used Mifsud, Ffordes and MXV often and they are very good]. Please check with others through the rec.photo newsgroups.
