Nope, not with free listing on eBay. Of course, even if the guy does find a sucker for one of these, is it worth the cost in reputation?

At lot of those "pie in the sky" listings on "vintage" seem to come from Europe, especially former Warsaw Pact countries. And/or they include shipping charges so high that I might as well fly over to pick it up personally. Perhaps they're basing their prices on how difficult and costly it would have been for an individual to obtain Western gear 30 or 40 years ago.

Hmmm..... This one is domestic. Could be doing a kind of Dutch Auction -- relisting the item at prograssively lower prices until someone bites.

Am I ever so stupid. I just "sold" a lens this morning on the Marketplace with the SuperProgram attached as a rear lens cap (for free). However, I am asking something for the working MX.
