I'm hoping that the seller's mention of "the Pentax Forum" directs a few new folks to our site. Maybe we'll pick up new members. Nice irony.


Still, I have to admire the seller's sales record and positive eBay feedback. Prospective buyers probably ignore the snarl and focus on the items on offer. That's what I do with one of the regular sellers at a local flea market, although he's more grumpy than snarly.

It makes me wonder if it was the actual Stinky Seller or a forum member trolling us. Either way, mildly entertaining.
I think its a combination of both actually.........I may need to drag my Friend Donald Trump into the mix !

19 watchers. I wonder how many of them are in this thread.

And oh, now he wants 4 grand for it. Seems to be taking the Kevin Cmaera approach: if you ask an outrageous enough price, someone will think that the lens must be special enough to be worth it.
Can sellers see the IDs of watchers?

Good to know. Bad enough that I'm a peasant who would actually use that lens if I had the inclination to buy one without also being called a voyeur,

It'd be interesting to see a timeline of the price fluctuations. Is that information available from eb*y?
