Sadly, he doesn't ship to South Africa, otherwise I could have made him an offer.

There are all sorts of reasons for selling kit. The one stated below doesn't make much sense...

Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 ED AS IF UMC Lens for Sony E-Mount

Selling sue to it not fitting into the warehousing I recently bought so I will have to look at an alternative wide angle.

I'd like to know more about Sue, and is she worth the asking price ?

The SMC PENTAX A 100mm f/2.8 macro has really gone up in value in recent times, but this one can be yours for only $1010!

Used smc PENTAX-A macro 100mm/F2.8 Lens Store EXC++ | eBay

The seller is quite poetic.

Body has no scratches.
There is usually abrasion by the use.
But no big damage such as dent.
It is totally in good condition.

Glass is very clear only in a very small dust.
(But of course it does not affect the photos.)
It has no fungus.
There is no haze on inside of the lens.

Sounds like a poor attempt at a haiku, perhaps it was lost in translation

BiN? No. But at the minimum bid it's a bargain. It had a better lens than most P&S and active IR focusing rather than passive zone AF.

I love it when sellers make up new terms. This is a sun clip.

In the wonderful parallel universe inhabited by ebay sellers, lenses have amazing capabilities. If you have one of these:



You can take this sort of picture.



Yeah right.

Mushroom farms always add value to a lens.

For £99 this could be yours :

Alas, as you can see, this one is very much not in the condition it left the factory!

The lens has taken a pretty serious bash at some point... it clearly isn't going to win any beauty contests... nor take a filter. The lens is also affected by fungus.

As if that wasn't enough, the lens is stiff to focus between 1 metre and infinity. .... So if you were regularly looking to very precisely focus in this area, it would be a pain
Never mind, who needs to focus between 1 metre and infinity?

'Highly reviewed on Pentax Forums - eBay won't allow me to put the link here, alas!'

Not in that state, it ain't !
