Am I missing something?
Posted By: jjdgti, 04-27-2015, 07:11 AM

Is this deal is for real?
BN U$5000
Pentax AUTO110 Submini SLR | eBay

I knew some people collect these little cameras, but a mint set with all lenses, box and filters goes for $200.

Nope, you are not missing anything.

Seller is either optimistic, has no clue, is laundering money, or selling something besides the camera. No one would actually pay that price for the camera so you have to wonder what you get in the box for $5,000?

But... Free Shipping!

Seriously though, the seller has zero feedback for items sold. This is his first try.

Maybe it's a misprint. Maybe the BIN price is supposed to be Rubles. That would be just under $100.00 at current rates.

SOme people just have no clue. Check the Craiglsist photo/video section sometime and you will see tons of film kits being offered for several times their vlaue. eBay isn't usually so bad , since seller shave a built in reference point in the sold lisitings for most items.

Of course then again, there are the jokers on eBay like Kevin Cameras who list EVERYTHING waaaaaay too high yet still somehow manage to make sales, I suspect based upon the line of reasoning that "if he's charging that much, his stuff must be better."

The price is not that bad, you must have seen that a roll of film is included in the photos. On second read the film is not included, it is a rip off.

I wished that his price was the price for the A110, I have two bodies and 3 lenses plus winder and flash. I would let them go for the one grand and even accept Canadian dollars. 110 film is back on the market. He also may not ship to Canada so guess he does not care if our museums lack one.

The seller is in Massena, NY. He could just throw it across the border...

Probably a cigarette smuggler

I think that's how my last order from an Amazon Marketplace vendor came to me. At least, it looked like it had been shipped via catapult from Rochester!
