I wonder what he meant by thousands of them. He had the Minolta f1.2 and the 2 Pentax lenses including about 34 of the A version. My original speculation is that they came from one or more of the news and paper companies that have downsized or gone out of business. Its not likely that they could easily steal a thousand ultra fast 50s in used condition. Perhaps some company that provide equipment to some of those companies had been warehousing this from trade in lenses as companies upgraded etc.

He was trying to sell them in bulk at $200/each. Someone may be planing on having them cleaned at $55 each and reselling them fro double the total a few at a time.

OrenMc You should call him once more on our behalf and ask if he'd consider listing 20 or 30 of those "thousands" here. The $100 as a reseller is much cheaper than all the Ebay fees. I'm sure there are lots of buyers that would love a decent deal on an A series version of this lens.

Bet he could sell more than 50 here if he offered a fair deal. Maybe even a few group buys for shooters in larger cities than are in social clubs here on PF etc.

Thousands, wow. If he doesn't list em up, the buyer will, who will probably list them nearly one at a time to get the most money
