I was ready to bid at the end, but it went for $175 more than my limit. I noticed no one was talking about the auction here before it ended. I guess everyone was afraid of jinxing it.

Whats $175 matter when you are spending that much? I would love to use that lens some day.

You gotta draw a line somewhere, and when you're sniping in the last few seconds you don't get a second chance. The winning bid came 9 seconds before the auction ended. By luck, his bid was $175 more than mine and came 1 second before mine, so mine didn't even register. But hell, his bid could have been $10,000 for all anyone knows. I could have been outbid by $9825, no way to tell unless someone contacts the winner. It was an interesting auction, 7 day auction but the first bid didn't come in until less than 4 hours from close.

If I'd won the thing it would be like a Stradivarius in the hands of a (very) rank amateur, so it's no great loss. I had the option of the buy-it-now price, as did everyone.

Did you see the seller's eBay UserID?
