Interesting opportunity for someone who needs it. I'm very happy with the FA*85 you mentioned on KEH a while back - it's become my favorite lens.

Hopefully this one's as good. Feedback is slightly worse than many eBay sellers. But it may still be a gem.


It appears it outdoes the newer HD AW 560/5.6, but it weighs twice as much and I notice the PPG now has some nice photos from the HD at f/6.3 and f/7.1, so I imagine either one could be the better choice - depending on the shooter.

For me his feedback is awful; check the negative and neutral comments. Sending him $6k would be a big risk I my books.

I know, I read them. Any potential buyer will have to calculate the risk. I'm a bit uncomfortable with it - that was why I felt I couldn't leave it unmentioned.


It also could potentially be a great lens.

If there's a problem, I realize it could end up being a huge hassle, if not worse. But at least any problem should qualify it as not meeting the description, since it's listed as A++, excellent, and mint. So hopefully eBay would stand behind it under their policy.

It was pointed out on dpreview that the second image in the auction is actually a photo of user goubejp's collection.

If someone points that out to ebay, they'll pull the auction.

I would check with Paypal, make sure that everything is covered, and snap it up Buyer protection these days is actually pretty amazing. I think that the worst case is that you're out the shipping to return it.

I would not send this fool $20 let alone 6k. On Evilbay feedback DOES tell the story both good and bad.
