I reckon this is a classic case for Judge Judy - I would LOVE to see her adjudicate on this one :)

I hear what you are saying, but, frankly, I think you have misinterpreted what I said. Anyway, pleasing to hear you comment on this forum, but, my comments regarding price stand. It might be a rare item but that does not mean you can ask a silly price for it and expect a buyer (I sense expectation with the long list of terms and conditions and expression of what seems to be tainted experiences). We can all look on and watch with popcorn to see if you get a buyer or not and I certainly won't lose any sleep over it.

And can I also say that you have to be prepared for the criticism that has flowed from your ebay listing. All the best with your listing and as a departing comment may I suggest you offer MUCH better product photos. No one will buy that lens for the price you are asking with the grainy images provided. An image tells a thousand words and your product photos aren't encouraging a would be buyer.

I;ll take your comment to mean that 'current' lenses won't survive the test of time & manual lenses, designed to last for ever, will either be unusable (on new image capture devices) or unobtainium or both.

Interesting thought. What is the future of all this legacy glass. It obviously has a immediate future, but, what about 40 years from now??? Lenses produced NOW will be just as 'collectable' minus their inherent electronic weaknesses.

Will our lens colelctions go the way of stamps? Worthless?

Im unsure this response was required. If you feel a little vulnerable about what you have done then perhaps talk about that. Unfortunately, it is hard to do this in a internet chat room where body language is absent.

To dispell your anxiety may I suggest you 'retract' the offer made before your bluff is called. Just a safe thought in my books.

Cheers

Would need to halve it again before I got even remotely interested. Totally overpriced. Just because it is rare it doesn't make it 'name your price'.

I am in your camp if that helps. At the end of the day, buyers always take risk in buying second hand gear. Sellers who 'profit' can only do so on reputation - it is within their interests to sell good gear - it is these guys who are taking on the risk of a dodgy second hand piece. So, it would be fair to say that profiteers are providing a service with people unwilling to take the risk essentially paying for that service - otherwise it becomes a lottery doesn't it!!!

In regards the item offered on ebay - that is ridiculously priced and not realistic. Sorry, I would MUCH rather buy a Pentax FA*/A* 85mm 1.4 or Pentax A* 135mm 1.8 and get change!
