At the risk of taking this too far offtopic, why not? A La Peppina, (or more comparable, a Caravel) arguably does the same thing as the ES2. Why has the price of a vintage gravity fed lever nothing to do with a realistical price target for a mass market ES2?

This is off topic, but one is old the other is new, big difference.

And how many people do we really think would be interested in a gravity fed machine - infact any 'proper espresso' machine that doesn't produce steam? I reckon you can count them as they would be all on this forum! It is never going to be any more than a uber niche product, which means it will never be in anyone's interest to manufacture - unless they can charge a pretty penny for it or that they do it as a real labour of love. I fear that for those who want gravity fed only machine for sub $300 then they will need to keep ebaying for quite a while yet.
