Cure your LBA with one single auction

This auction should just about clear up even the worst case of LBA. You could join every frigging lens "club" on this entire forum.

Pentax Camera and Lens Collection on Auction - ( item 200285184631 end time 16-Dec-08 19:03:10 EST)

I'm not associated with this auction in any way. If it were me, I'd part it out rather than hope for a fat-wallet buyer.

Interesting that the seller won't accept returns.

He does offer each lens in individual auctions.

although I would not mind the 200 F2.5, and some of the wide angle lenses I already have 5 of these lenses, and think the package price of 10K US is a little high.

also some of the lenses he lists don't exist. I have a K 105 F2.8 and it it THE ONLY 105mm K mount lens ever.

People need to ask a few questions.

Best is to split this up. And then buy a new lens every second month. This way you can draw your personal roadmap, and enjoy every new lens to the full.

I just purchased and got a lens, and another one is on its way. I am very glad that it has not arrived yet. Else I would have had to split my attention between the two new lenses. Now I can fully enjoy the first one, and when the second one arrives, enjoy the second one!

This seller is leaving no rooms for negotiation. It is very hard to sell like that.
