Hope you're not infering that it's me doing that
If it was me, then I'd not bother with one lousy dollar here and there

lol.. no, just saying it's strange.

when i have no doubt that something irregular is happening in eBay, i simply report it.

good luck with your sale, very fine lens.

I don't understand. You think 157.00 is a high price for a 1.2 50mm. The high bidder seam to know what he's looking at and has bid accordingly.

No i don't think its a high price.

But just look at the amount of bids he made, all with 10$ between them. i think it's odd

Without a doubt, it does happen that sellers drive up their prices on their own using another account. Itís not the case here though. One canít be too careful though when buying online.

Looking at lens sales on ebay, you often notice bidders with 0 feedback making the first bids on items, often raising the price a dollar at a time. I think they are just looking to get a steal of a deal, which never pans out of course (hence the lack of winning items and 0 feedback). Experienced bidders generally only make one serious bid near the end.

35mm still available, $130 plus shipping. I've also got a M42 super takumar 135mm f2.5 for another $120, but I'll only sell it bundled with the 35mm.

Looks like a case of battling autobids to me.

Update:
The SMC Takumar 35mm f2 has a 49mm filter thread and seems to have some yellowing. I was under the impression this version was supposed to be clear of this, guess not....

Nothing some time in the sun can't clear up. Hey... that's something all us Canadians need now. Let's hurry up this global warming thing and be rid of these winters. LOL
