I remember the first time I saw a the original Sunpak 120J I knew that they had me in mind when they designed it, but it just sold for crazy money second hand on E-Bay.

It included several lenses and a Sony Alpha 100 (in very good condition) extra batteries, charger, CF cards etc so I couldn’t lose on the deal. My son was happy he though he was going to get the A100 but instead I took it to Phototronics (An authorises Sony repair centre) and had them fit a 720nm IF filter.
