While I hate to see the grief that has come to Circuit City, it certainly presents a lot of opportunties for bargains.
I have had for years a Minolta Maxxum 35mm with four very nice lenses. when I went digital, I got a Canon Rebel (thanks to a good friend in San Francisco named Manu) which has served me very well. I have thought about getting a Minolta, then Sony when they bought Minolta, but they were always more expensive then I thought made sense just for a home for my lenses, flash, remote etc. Then Circuit City went bust.
Well now all that equipment has a home. Thanks to Anita!
