    But he has a 100% positive feedback. :lol:

    If it's legit though I'll laugh. I mean the 18-55 mounts on the D3 just fine, so why not.

    A 18-55mm on a D3x? Even if it was genuine... no, I don't think so. I'd just chuck away the lens and get even a nifty fifty. ;)

    The price sounds fishy ($7500 camera for $4000 on ebay?), but the guy claims the lens is a mistake:

    " The lens is a, Nikon 50mm F/1.4G AF-S Nikkor Lens. The title is a typo. I have added photos and some pro and cons of this lens. I will put up additional information in our next listing. Thank you for bringing it to my attention. "

    Hmmph. Better than using a DX lens on a FF...

    That's clearly the reason that bidding started at 99 cents.

    1.5 days left on the auction and it's up to $4k. I bet by the time the auction ends it's at full retail, if not more knowing the dweebs that infest eBay.

    The guy normally sells wok's and book, with last activity a year ago, odds are his account got hacked. Or he maybe trying to sell it to pay off the credit card he bought it with.

    LOL, I noticed that too. Also most of his positive feedbacks are on purchases and not sales.
