    Ya'll know I roam the Ebay in search for collectibles. The other day I found a Yashica TLR with the very rare Lumaxar lens on. Sooo... I want it! But the guy doesn't give away any shipping prices and info so I e-mail asking how much to Phoenix, AZ. Immediately after he replies I get back on Ebay to see that the camera was 'snatched' by someone else. It had a Buy It Now feature.

    I feel so dumb!!!


    Aaaaaaaaaaaaargh!!!!!!!!

    That'll teach me a lesson, 'shoot and then ask'...:lol:

    sorry to hear you missed out on that deal mitica...made me think of this camera but more interestingly the accompanying lens which I just saw on ebay today for like $1800 or something:

    Canon 7 with Canon 50mm f.95!! fastest lens ever made...:drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: must be some sweet bokeh with that puppy

    [​IMG]

    found a site where a guy converted the bayonet mount on the canon lens so he could mount it to his Leica M3....sweet.

    hmmm...did a bit of research and found a faster lens: Rodenstock TV-Heligon 0.75 50mm
    still want the canon :mrgreen:

    Just so you don't feel bad. I have a very rare Nikon F-100 I will sell you for only $50 and shipping to AZ. would only be $500!

    Want to hear my ebay story? I just purchased what I thought was a studio view camera for $27. Guy was not willing to ship it due to the weight and wanting local pick-up. I live in Puyallup, camera was in Vancouver, Wa., only 2 1/2 hours away. Drove down with a buddy yesterday to pick it up, waiked in a lo and behold it was not a studio view but a 1920's era copy view camera on a metal track that was 14 feet long and weighed about 2 tons. Took 3 1/2 hours to take apart, left the track due to it's size, and ended up with a view camera that is about 4 foot x 3 foot with a bellows about 6 feet long. Has a good lens and the bellows is in good shape but not what I expected. Lots of cherry wood, about 300 pounds of it.

    I'm happy with it but my back is not. My wife isn't real thrilled either.
