F*600 on Kijiji Toronto asking $150?!?
Posted By: WiseOx, 06-29-2011, 07:53 AM

Just spotted it today...posted for sale yesterday. Hope someone on this forum got it.

It's still up on Kijiji...but there is no way this thing is still available. Either they have no idea what they have...or the price was a typo. I've bounced out an email just in case...but pretty sure one of the other 197 people who looked at the ad before me, got it.

Pentax 600mm camera lense for sale - Mississauga / Peel Region Cameras For Sale - Kijiji Mississauga / Peel Region Canada.

Any chance it could be a scam?

Any time I see an item significantly under-priced, it raises my scam alert!

Keep us posted.

Jilted lover/boyfriend/girlfriend/spouse/partner getting revenge?

Does look too good to be true.

@mtansley - My thoughts exactly... I can't see a "GolferGirl" lugging a 15lb lens and tripod anywhere... either that, or some one died and the kids have no clue.

In that case it might be a real deal. Oh the agony of indecision knowing that there are so many people you can trust & so many more you can't!!

Could well be that, anyone in Canada would be nuts not to jump on this one.

I once bought an anime figure from a girl on livejournal who had no idea how much it was worth, it was going for $350 used on ebay, and I got it from her in excellent condition for $150, because it belonged to her bf who broke up with her or something.

So sometimes stuff like this happens.

Met her with cash in hand and check it out. The FA 600/4 was going for ~ $8500 new. The case isn't going to effect IQ. Get a Pelican to put it in.

Dam, for $150 just buy it :O For an extra 2 hours of work, i'd snap on that.

And if it doesn't work take it apart and use the elements to burn stuff!
