I've been trying to buy an enlarger lens from eBay for about a week, now. I notice that there seems to be some "funny stuff" going on and it's pissing me off! First, there is this lens (El-Nikkor 80 mm.) http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=300584616059&ssPageName=ADME:B:EOIBUAA:US:1123 Started out low and ended high but that's not the problem. There seems to be a shill bidder who pushed up the price. He's a new bidder. Never bid on anything else and has a "0" rating. Near the end of the auction, he comes in and bids four times, consecutively, even though he's the highest bidder. Second, this auction (El-Nikkor 80 mm.) http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=270791641224&ssPageName=ADME:B:EOIBUAA:US:1123 Again started out low but, this time, with a high reserve. Ends up going for $65. Okay, not so bad. You win some and you lose some. But, literally, 24 hours later, the same seller posts the same lens for the same price. Okay... Maybe I'm acting a little bit like sour grapes because I didn't get a price as cheap as I want. I would be willing to pay more if the bidding seemed honest but it seems to me like somebody is playing around. What's your opinion? Do you think somebody's tinkering with the bids or am I really acting like sour grapes?
