I would concur with Dgaies here. It is really hard to determine who was first in line by looking at the thread posts. It all comes down to the PM order which only the seller knows.

My earlier post in this thread is a perfect example. I do not always post in the sale thread just because I sent a PM. In this case I sent the seller a PM at 5 PM yesterday. I posted in the thread at 9 PM. The only reason I actually posted the "I sent a PM" post was so that I could post a comment about the paypal discussion without taking the thread off topic.

As far as not replying propmtly, please be understanding. We all have families, jobs and so on. I am sure the seller is doing the best he can.

Absolutely true. I work full time and have two children, both under the age of 2. Any time I devote to selling my gear comes at the expense of my family, my job, or my sleep at night. Hence, slow picture posting & slow responses. I'm doing what I can and that's just going to have to be good enough!

I sent him PM first
As stated earlier, this is absolutely not true. I was just about to post a screenshot to prove him wrong, then I suddenly stopped caring and found something else to do.

Well this sure got interesting. That F50 is interesting too. Do I really need that focal length when I have a DA 70 limited? ;-)

Yes, and a 55mm lens to go in between them

Curious about the serial number on your Vivi 80-200 - the first two digits at least.
Could you pass that along?

No problem

I don't mind sharing the S#, but out of respect for the future owner's potential feelings on the subject, we'll leave it at the first four. 7736XXXX

This is an f4.5, not an f4. I believe this is a Kiron, yes?

The neat thing I liked to do with this lens is zoom and focus at the same time while shooting movies with my K-r. It took some practice, but at least it didn't require three hands.

Kobori, just like my impressive 28-105 (7760xxxx). Love the 1-touch for the exact same reason you give, video lens.
Sure wish ya hadn't said "77"..

Is it an "A" type aperture, or full manual? I've had 77xx of both types.

I believe it is full manual. Also, in playing with the aperture, I noticed that it is not as "snappy" as it should be. I have seen much worse, but something isn't perfect with this one. I can't see any oil on the blades, even with a flashlight. I guess it really doesn't matter in full manual, but in this situation...

**PRICE REDUCED***
