Thanks, Jay.

I still need to get my R80 set up (I got the one I was bidding on), but so far I like it. Yeah, the RX80's are easy to get around $850-$950 (new). I'd love to get one of the Japanese reissues, but that's way out of my price range.

The closest PE-R80 that you can get new, is the few specimen of NOS Japanese PER80 reissues. I think they've done Japanese reissues twice (late 90's?) and a few years ago. They typically retail for $2700-$3800 compared to $8-1200 for a Korean RX80 and are not currently being produced. I believe they are Fuji Gen but I could be wrong. The Mats versions are at least as good.


I guess that the current re-issues are made by Terada... quality wise that shouldn't make a difference.

Without knowing the import taxes for your home... but a new PE-R80 re-issue can be found for 140000 Yen in Japan... 2nd hand it will be below 100000 Yen. It might be worth to import.
