49mm Reverse Adapter "Caveat Emptor"
Posted By: Racer X 69, 05-21-2013, 08:15 AM

Here is what looks like a great deal. But look closely. A decent price but the shipping is nuts!

C $50.00 (approx. US $48.64)
49mm Lens Macro Reverse Adapter Ring for Pentax K PK Mount K100D K200D K20D K10D | eBay

This is hard to understand, when there are many other sellers offering the same thing with shipping at under a buck or for free.

And the listing shows 11 sold (at the time of this posting).

I suspect the poster made a mistake with the shipping calculator because the same rate comes up for a bunch of countries. I've seen flawed shipping rates in a range of auctions. Either that or people are buying multiple items from the same source with the extra ones being given free shipping.

I've seen this happen before. Usually asking the seller a question about the shipping gets it corrected.
