Wow, i just sold an old Hugo Meyer lens I had sitting around for a couple of years. I was hoping to get $150 for it, it sold for... $559! I had two people bid over 500 bucks for it! The winning bidder is in China, and his feedback shows that he's not afraid to buy lenses. I wonder, is the lens worth this much or do you think two "snipers" got caught in their game? I have no symathy, if you are wiling to bid high, you should be willing to pay high too, but has anyone else seen these things sell for this much?

Looks like a gorgeous lens. I had it on my Watch list, myself.
Why the "seller's remorse?" The market has a way of instructing us.

Believe me, I'm a big believer in Hayek, prices tell us a lot...:smile: I guess I was wondering if this is a "real" price as opposed to some weird sniper outcome. Oh well, as long as I get paid, no worries!:smile: Not bad for something laying around the house eh?

I was watching it too. I don't think it's worth that much but if collectors keep getting crazy it will be. Good for you!

ebay lens collectors

i've seen dshk on ebay drop serious money on lenses with regular frequency but it looks like some brave soul outbid him on this one, thats rare. I give up on an auction if i see him bidding.
