[SOLD] Voigtlander SL 180mm / f4 Pentax KA mount

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Voigtlander SL 180mm / f4 Pentax KA mount

Asking Price
USD 550

Item Description
FS: Pentax-mount Voigtlander SL 180mm / f4 lens. Condition is mint, glass is pristine, mechanically sound. I've just listed this item on eBay, item number 250314925701 with Buy It Now, so that it should be possible to take advantage of the Live Search (Microsoft) cash back offer.

Here's how it works: This offer should be eligible for the Live Search (Microsoft) rebate if you use Buy It Now and Paypal. Go to Live Search, and search for anything photographic. If you get an eBay link on the results up at the top in the gray box, click it. You should now see a cashback logo at the top of the eBay search results page. Read the conditions of the offer! Then you can search for any item in eBay that's eligible. This one should be. As of this posting, the offer is 25% off, but it can and does fluctuate. Unfortunately, it appears as though this cash back offer only works if you're in the USA.

that's a nice offer, but I'm sure this breaks marketplace rules.

It technically does, but things are a bit different now with these MS cashback offers - people can save significant money doing it that way. So you have the option of buying it directly here for $600 (fair market price for this lens, BTW) or using the Cashback option if you're in the US.

Sorry, was not aware that this violates the rules. I was thinking that instead of simply listing it here for a fair price, I'd let Microsoft contribute to the buyer and seller. I don't have issues with taking money from Microsoft...

To be honest, I think we should all be doing this right now so everyone can take advantage of the Live.com cashback. Like dkreithen said, it benefits both seller and buyer.

The rules are:

# You may only place links to your own eBay auctions after the auctioned item has been listed in the Marketplace for at least one week
# You may not post links to others' eBay auctions

So if you really want to get technical, as long as the link is to a Buy-It-Now item and not an auction, the seller isn't violating any rules.

Moderators may disagree. . .

P.S. The VL180 is a great lens and so small that there's always room in my bag for it

I've relisted this lens on eBay item number 250318789955 for $550. For a US resident, using the current Microsoft cash back offer of 25% brings the final cost to $412.50 + shipping/insurance. That's a great deal on this hard-to-find, discontinued, and most excellent lens.

That's less than I originally paid for one from cameraquest (+ hood + shipping.)

This is like getting the Voigtlander 125 macro for the original retail price, vs. the
$1100 it goes for now! People! The 180 Lanthar is a great lens!
