FA35/2.0 with 24K gold filter ring
Posted By: Kguru, 09-29-2012, 09:31 AM

It must be there hidden by the hood ! How else do you explain its US$1200 price
(It's not the odd one-off by the way, by a store no less).

Pentax SMC 35mm f2 FA Lens | eBay

Probably another case of mistaken identity with the 31 Ltd, like the DA40 XS a few days ago.

Cool! The ring on mine is made of plastic!

The auction indicates that they (seller has 10) are new in box. Even so, the price is more along the lines of what you would expect for a FA 31 Limited.

It's a store with 44,000 +ve feedbacks, could it have been hijacked?

Here's another item made of doubly solid gold - a set of hollow extension tube for $2,000

That's what you get when you let the computer set your listing prices for you... big sellers have automation to handle almost all of that tedium!

I looked just now it's gone to 94,000 pages = 2,840,000 item listings.
Isn't there an upfront listing fee, just 20c each that's over half a million dollars

I'm surprised it hasn't crashed Ebay already.

Having a look though some of the other Pentax stuff he is selling among other things...... I hope he as cheap annual fees on his warehouse because he'll be stuck with a lot of stuff for a very long time.
