Too late by 30 minutes, lost one heck of a deal!

I was browsing web sales sites yesterday and saw someone selling what looked like a perfect Pentax 400-600mm Reflex, for a whooping 50$. I've never even SEEN one of those so I jumped on it. Turns out I was 30 minutes too late, which means someone bought it 5 minutes after it was posted.

Darn.

I just hope it went to someone on the forum here.

Saw one of those on KEH the other day for around 485 (USD) and it sold fairly quickly. The same day one sold on ebay for over 600. Someone got a great deal on the one for 50!

I would have bought it for $50 just for the novelty.

Looks like there's one on ebay right now for $458 if you really want one. The three reviews of the lens here on the forums left me entirely disinterested.

I'm like you, I would have bought it just to see how it peforms. It's not everyday you get to play with a lens such as this. Ifreally I wouldn't have liked it, I could have passed it on to someone else...
