    Well, he's offering "CARL ZEISS S-TESSAR 300MM F5.6" for all of $389. This is an unusable copier lens. Not a good sign.

    I'm pretty sure this is who I won a 50mm EL Nikkor from. The lens showed up with a crack, not a scratch but a crack, in the glass on the edge. It was not described as such. The crack does not affect the use becuase it is right on the edge and I paid less than $30 with shipping so I didn't make an issue about it. Just my 2 cents.
