Hello from the USA & Jamaica

Just wanted to say hello, new user here from the USA & Jamaica (I travel a lot)

Trying to build up a set of Super Takumar Prime lenses, but my GAWD are they
1. hard to find
2. some of them are so pricey!

But I'm keeping hope alive!

Welcome!

Takumars seem to be relatively plentiful on Ebay, the word is that their price has gone up quite a bit from what it used to be, though.

THAT is exactly the problem. More often than not the price on them on ebay will be ridiculous. So I'll try to be patient and wait for a better deal to fall into my lap.

I love the lenses, but I don't love them THAT much

Yup, getting a deal on Ebay requires patience and diligence. I try to look it as a hobby of a kind (an element of gambling is included too ).
