Here's a deal for those that like the CCD-sensor cameras:

K200D + 18-55 & 75-300 zooms and cheap mirror lens. The seller draws us in with tempting statements like "well used" and "no serious damage", but 75-300 has a broken mount... which leads you to think that it must have been attached to the camera and dropped (so far as I'm aware, lens mounts don't just fall off).

Yours for a cool GBP 450 (or 571 of your US dollars).

Of course, it comes with a branded Pentax bag, and a 2x tele-converter, so maybe that's where the extra cost is...

Just looking in the photo-video category on Craigslist...

They shut down the personals section, so I guess the pervs have to post elsewhere...but this one kind of screams "stay away unless you want to end up with your skin being worn as a suit".

i might have made an offer on this one, but, alas, it’s missing its puck. (As with other online ads, the listing may disappear eventually)

Someone must have told him to "get the puck outta here"

Clueless internet sellers, now there is something I can relate to.

I recently saw an ad on the ZA classified sites for a Pentax FA 80-320mm - only $350! Wow, where is my wallet? Nah.

Don't even get me started on all the MZ bodies with 28-80 kit lenses that are now collector's items.

Another favorite:

Pentax K1000 with accessories, see (the one and only) picture.

Asking price about $200.

Is it too much trouble to type up a decent description or to add some more pictures?

I saw the worst ad on a local classifieds website today. Someone was selling a Pentax LX + 50mm 1.2 lens (and a few other bits) for €50. The ad had 14 views, and yet the camera and lens were already gone by the time I messaged.

The other day I saw a Zeiss (West) Distagon 24/f4 M42 lens (super rare, only few made for their Icarex cameras) for about the same price. I emailed within an hour or so, but already gone.

It's the worst, I'm telling you.

That is just rude!

But, the only situation worse than that is being the first to message the seller and arranging the deal, only to drive around an hour or so later to find the seller sold the camera to someone else. LOWLIFE!

I had a deal set up for a nice lens last year. I couldn't meet with the seller straight away and we arranged to meet a couple of days letter. The next day I got a text that the lens was scratched and that it could not be sold anymore. Yeah, right...
