Just love eBay sellers. Post your non-sense answers or desciptions here.

Inquired about a FF lens for my K-1 that is relatively rare in K mount. 99% of the listings are the usual Canikon listings. One did not specify mount type so I inquired. Here is the response verbatim:

"This lens is constructed to fit all models of Canon and Nikon cameras, regardless of camera model or type of sensor."

I specifically asked is it a Canon, Nikon, or Pentax mount. No, it is not a T-mount of an Adaptall mount......

I would also expect full commitment to just one group from each lens element...

More seriously, there's this thread with a similar topic The worst of Craigslist/Shopgoodwill/eBay etc. -

Yes, theme of thread seems to me the same as Boris' earlier thread.

I inquired about a lens which was listed as "as is", "nonfunctional" but nothing more. The pictures looked good so I sent a question saying that I was interested in the lens but wanted to know more about in what way the lens was "nonfunctional". His response was " read my description. "
