SMC Pentax M 50 F2 "Boxed" $45.99
Posted By: Brand X, 04-11-2013, 10:21 AM

Sometimes I wonder about the people who put stuff up for auction or sale on eBay. Here is an example. This person has put up an M50 F2 lens and has "Boxed" in the auction title and elsewhere in the auction text. This would imply that the item is in the original box. But take a good look at the pictures. The box is for an A50 F2 lens, not an M.

In the one picture that shows the lens in the box, it doesn't even fit the styrofoam packaging.

Caveat Emptor.

I find that most photo gear is sold by people with little or no knowledge of what they are selling.

The seller now has removed the listing because of error.

I purchased a 300mm F4 Pentax 67 lens on ebay and received a "Boxed" SMC Pentax-M* 300mm F4 lens with case and 77mm Tiffen 81A Made in USA filter with all in great condition so I just kept it and gave him positive feedback. I was planning on using the 300mm 67 lens with my 67-K mount adapter so it worked out much better since the M* lens is half the weight.
