    I'm not the seller nor do I know him. I just thought it was interesting. Listed with a starting bid of $50 and got no bids! Now re-listed at the same starting price. I don't need another TLR or I would snatch this up. Would be a great buy if it went for the starting bid or even more. One of you must need a new toy right?:D

    Watching it, it's got six days to go so I'm holding off. I would like a TLR though.

    (Looked at the completed listings--the previous listing had it as "Rollie" and may have been overlooked. Have to check those misspelled items!)

    I've always wanted a Rolleiflex 2,8D (well, at least since I started to love Rollei TLRs :tongue: ). It's the most good looking 2,8 Rollei in my opinion, and would look great together with my 3,5B of the same period. I've had many opportunities to buy one, but I can't afford it just for for its looks, and I have many cameras I haven't tried yet. :rolleyes:

    Rolleyes is a fitting smiley. It's pronounced like "Rolleis". :rolleyes: :D

    This one's off to the races now, at least relative to the previous listing (if I'd just been paying attention yesterday! :sad: ). Still a bargain though (thus far).

    I wouldn't mind have another one, but they cut back the number of hours we're working, so I geuss I'm satisfied with just one.

    I am out of touch with values for these, what would you estimate to be a price range for this?

    They seem to usually wind up somewhere north of $500 on eBay--to preserve domestic tranquility, I have to stay in the "this was a deal I couldn't pass up" range, myself, below the "I got a pretty good price, you should see how high some of these get" tier. :D

    Well it sold for $688. Much to the relief of the seller I'm sure. Too bad I didn't put in a bid the first time around and won it for $50.:sad:

    I like to search for Misspelled equipment on eBay.
    One day I'll be in the right place, at the right time, hopefully ...
