15mm on ebay

Just a heads up for everyone here. It appears someone is selling a 15mm lens on ebay.co.uk without realising what it is. Auction number is 150407770381: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=150407838288. I can't afford something like this, but it would be a shame to see it go to a dealer rather than someone who will use it. (it appears it comes with some other lenses which would be good in their own right and a MX body. Obviously, caveat emptor, as a collection like this with someone saying "I don't know anything about cameras" has to raise some suspicion)

Oh dear, seller relisted as a buy it now for GBP 200, and its gone already, along with what looks like a 200mm Takumar, 50mm 1.2 etc etc....OMG! Maybe GBP 600 of his Dad's life time camera collection sold off just like that.

Auction is back on, listing is 150407838288: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=150407838288. Still no details on the lenses, but this is serious fuel for someone with LBA.

I will stick with my ME and 28/50/135. Reminds me of the story about a French farmer once refusing to try nice wine, he said he would not do it as he could never go back to his normal stuff. I saw someting about Cartier Bresson only using a 50mm...

found it, but I don't know if it's worth the risk.
If there was the list of the lenses at least. But still, it only takes few mins to google things and any sound person would put the price slightly more adequately IMO

I would guess that the serial number on the 15mm could be checked with Pentax...if only a few were made.

I wonder whether its one of these:
K 15/3.5 AL
I particularly like the fact a Jessops TC is thrown in for free

There are some other lenses on the camera bodies not listed. I bet one is a fast 50mm...that would be a sweet collection.

The K15/3.5 for sale is most likely the third version, as the seller listed it as:

SMC pentax 1:3.5 15mm

The first two version (including the AL) did not have mm listed on the lens and would have been listed as:

SMC PENTAX 1:3.5/15

Looks like postage in the UK only.

Someone please snap this up ... interesting to see what it goes for in the end.

Am i the only one that cant see any glass inside the 28/2.8. Probably it's just the SMC in action .

What is the thing under the hotshoe (at the left side of camera), a cap or 40/2.8?
