    What did you buy that was junk? Can't you contact the seller and rip him/her a new a$$hole and try to get your money back?

    I may be teaching you both how to suck eggs, but the winter auction held by lpfoto in Stockholm has some nice woodies. Lots of old German folders for you too Ole :smile:

    Yes, they've got some yummie lenses this time. I normally just collect the PDF's when sales are over - just as a reference and to see some unusual cameras or lenses. It's like a very condensed glossified section of eBay, without wanting to sound disrespectful.

    BTW Westlicht in Vienna has a new auction ready as well (nov. 27: www.westlicht-auction.com) - all these people seem very happy to relieve anyone of the X-mas money.

    I like the way LP foto have an extensive Arca 8x10 outfit that they illustrate with a single picture of a Vitax lens :smile:

    Westlicht is always too pricey for me. Nice to gawp though. I've always dreamed of stumbling over a Wild aerial lens going cheap, and it was a bit of a shock to find out they were orange.

    I have this on my ebay allready..:wink:

    I bought a huge camera but one lens was missing when I recieved it..
    an I waited for more than a month...

    had I known it was this troublesome, I'd still have the money for the wet plate..

    it sucks!

    You gambled, you lost, you complain. If you'd won, you'd be boasting now.

    true. (maybe) - I still would have preferred the wet plate, but that's how life goes....
