    farthest away it focuses is 6 feet? like a fisheye lens, this is a very very very special purpose lens you'll be waiting years for the correct use for.

    No Paypal, will take Skrill…anyone know what that is ( Skrillex little brother??)?

    Serbia??
    100% FB but only 30 some transactions but his record selling looks good.
    Probably completely legit but I'd be a bit hesitant for that pile of coin until I knew more about the money transfer.
    That is if I actually wanted it, which I don't.
    Which renders my contribution moot.
    :devil:

    Sorry guys

    Interesting attitude by seller when describing scratches on lens "only evident if you stick your nose up".

    First off.. No collector would touch that thing. Hand made POC. And for 900 bucks? In a pay system we have never heard of? Just take the money and flush it down the commode. Saves the postage and the carbon footprint.

    Be careful with that Luftwaffen lens. Many of those are fakes. I do have a prewar Wesphalia 100,000 mark coin. Trade you for a good condition Leica II.

    And still, no example photos!!! ARGH!

    it seems as if the one on ebay can focus with some sort of homebrew bag bellows.

    I assume one should distinguish between a collector and a user. I personally would find a high speed lens (with all its probable limitations) quite interesting for some applications.

    What is wrong with being handmade in the ROC? (And handmade items from there are getting scarce meanwhile.)

    If collectors would buy this sort of crap... I would quit my day job. I have a 1.9 WA Wolly Oscilloscope lens. Not only is it worth nothing, it takes up room.

    Well, somebody has bid on the camera (and has 26 bids running on other photographic items)! Maybe glue your lens on some random scrap camera body, ask as at least $1999.99, someone might buy!

    I believe that lens if from a photocopier. I think I have one of those lenses, but I have never used it. It makes a nice paperweight.

    I've seen collectors buy some stupid pieces of crap as "collectible odditys"
