To all that are interested to know about this guy:

We made a deal on several lenses, and I paid by bank transfer. The seller informed me of every stage and updates, and eventually provided me with tracking number which seems all right. I expect to receive the parcel next week depending on custom processing time. What I want to say is, so far no problem to deal with this guy. Please image if your inbox was flooded by tons of messages, and you were not confident about your English. Could you guarantee to reply to all? I am not in a postion to defend him. What i want you guys to do is just patiently wait until my lenses arrive and being checked. Please don't judge a guy so early!
Well, I hope you do get the stuff you paid for.

This guy just started to sell the same set (well, almost the same anyway) lenses at our local photography forum here in Singapore:

WTSell: Lens - Pentax Pentax A*200,FA*85, 31,43 voigtlander lanthar75 , 90
WTSell: Lens - Pentax Pentax A star400,250-600, zeiss100 macro
WTSell: Lens - Sigma (RicohMount) Sigma 100-300F/4 - Sigma15-30mm

The reason of selling these lenses (quoted letter to letter):

QuoteQuote:
I sell my equipment for switching to another brand, for reasons of work I have chosen to move to a system D800-E.
Do not ask me a thousand photos, this is because the equipment and shall be accompanied by the invoice.
I sold all the material sony .... I was asked for a view 50 pictures, 50 pictures are accurate ... I wanted them to resell.
Maximum reliability in all, shipping included in the price with tracking and international courier service.
Payment by bank transfer, also on account of work.
Very reasonable prices, I do not have to make money, but to sell everything in a hurry, to go to the Nikon system.
Shots taken in 6.400Iso, sorry.
And I think his English has improved a LOT

BTW, he has been de-registered due to potential scam ads/seller.

Thanks for letting us know. It doesn't look good, though it's still possible he was not too succesful in selling the lenses here and is (was) now trying to do so elsewhere with a different story. At least the 28-70, the Sigma 100-300 (K-mount) and the Zeiss 21 are missing from those new offers.

About his English, that still mostly sounds like Google Translator.

Frank, thank you for letting us know. The tracking number he provided to me seems fine:

Date Time Location Tracking Event
24-03-2013 21:30 International Hub Awaiting Customs clearance
24-03-2013 21:29 International Hub Received in destination country
22-03-2013 10:01 Delivery Agent - BANGKOK - PTT Forwarded for export
21-03-2013 15:17 Delivery Agent - THAILAND Collected from customer

It is still too early to judge him for me. I will wait until the parcel arrives, and surely I will keep you guys informed! So far, no problem to deal with this guy.

Hi Guys,

I am in contact with Bancha, I purchased and payed the Zeiss 21 by bank transfer. Payment reception and shipping/tracking number is outstanding.
I verified the information he gaveme through different channels. Everything is ok for me so far, but still there is some risk.
And I reallyl would advise him to use a Paypal account. This would make his business much more easy.
I will keep you updated aswell.

Best^^, Markus

Unfortunately, that means there are now at least three people (including troenaas) who state they have bought and paid for the Zeiss 21. It seems very likely now that this is fraud.

I also paid for the Zeiss 21mm in addition to the Sigma 100-300mm.

And I have reported this issue to the moderators.

The circumstances surrounding the Zeiss 21 is suspicious. Has anyone who paid for gear received it as yet from this seller?
I'm afraid there's little else that can be done if money has been paid via uninsured means and gear doesn't show up as expected.

Sorry to tell you that his sigma 100-300/4 was listed again at our forum, but our system automatically set Sigma lenses as Ricoh mount if it's listed under Ricoh/Pentax sub forum for b&s. There is no Ricoh mount 100-300/4 lens from Sigma anyway.

Now a few guys reported to have paid for the same lens, this just made the whole thing very obvious. Unless the seller got a few copies of the same lens.

Well, at least you know if any of those lenses you've paid for was listed again?
