eBay Prosumer Finder (a resource for the used camera buyer)

We are excited to introduce our brand new feature, the eBay Prosumer Finder. This is of the resource variety for the used prosumer camera buyer. It provides ready-made eBay queries for some of the most popular prosumers of the last few years. These are no longer available as brand new, but can be found on eBay.

Why this feature? Because manufacturers shifted into "DSLR-priority" mode, the prices of some of these prosumers have gone up instead of down, so if you want to grab one at a good price you have to do some bargain hunting. Which is where this handy feature comes in: it has ready-made eBay queries for the most popular models. Each link opens in a new window for your convenience in case you are planning to run multiple searches in parallel.

Attention Shoppers! Please note that the queries are pointing to eBay search results. We are not screening the results. They are computer-generated by the eBay search engine. Be sure to do your homework when making eBay purchases.

A brief history of (prosumer) time: Over at the RAWsumer blog we have a list of prosumers/RAWsumers announced between 2002 and 2007. If you want to refresh your prosumer memory.
