what a deal with an AF adapter to boot. No mention of a case. the paint condition on mine is probably similar as to what you can see. where mine
doesn't look so good is under the hood.--- extend the hood and that part of the barrel seems off color...

If I were bidding on it, I'd ask about the case.

There's a picture of the case now, along with many close-ups that look like a focus blending algorithm went horribly awry during alignment. Otherwise, be forewarned, the filter drawer looks welded shut and the lens mount is ovoid!

I believe the buy-it-now was probably about 25-30% higher than the opening bid (based on his other items he listed). I'm curious if it will end up selling for more than what the original buy-it-now price was

I see from the images the case is included, although it may be a little mangled from the image with additional packing in it.

It's way over that now.

I'm sure this seller is kicking him or herself for their buy it now prices. There was also a FA*300f4 buy-it-now but someone bid on it and the buy-it-now went away.

Click on the link above. Then click "see other items". Then click the "completed sales" checkbox.

FA31 (made in Japan) - 825 (sold within hours of listing)
A*200 macro-1100 (sold within minutes/hours of listing)
etc...

The FA*300/4.5 had a BIN of $900, which was a pretty decent price. It will be interesting to see if the final bid on that one ends up higher than $900.

There was also an A*85/1.4 that had a BIN of $900 that I was eyeing as the A*200/4 popped up. I went with the latter.

Well looks like the auction is complete at around $3500. Who bought it?

Wasn't me; it looked a bit heavy to handhold and I don't own a proper tripod

I could ask

BTW, the like-new A50/1.2 is slightly above the original buy-it-now price with a few minutes to go.
