Must have been Paul McCartney's A50 1.4.

The guy clearly is working on what I generally describe as the Amazon Marketplace out-of-print bookseller model: mark it up as high as possible, and hope some sucker bites.

I mean, if I could sell a PA 50mm f2 for the price he's asking for I'd head on down to the local camera shop and buy up their entire stock, even with their usual lens markup.

(On the other hand, I'm not certain what's more insulting about his Mount Adapter K listing: the incredibly optimistic pricing, or the fact that he's charging $42 international shipping for a tiny ring of metal.)

The same seller has the same A50/1.4 lens in another auction for $199.00. Not sure what they are trying to prove by selling one for 1K at the same time.

Very strange. Do you really think it is the exact same lens?

Not sure if it's the same A50/1.4 in both ads, as I can’t read the s/n in one. It’s probably different lenses, just selling them for way different prices. The seller was doing the same for some M50’s as well a few weeks back.

Probably trying to make the cheaper of the two look like a steal to the uninformed.
