For me , I have to be expert to know that japanese garbage than know rollei and leica.


have fun with your portraits with teles in low light, and macros. People always rave about Leica. I borrowed an M3 once. Wasn't amazed. First time I ever used an F, I became obsessed.


Sometimes I wonder if the people that rave about Leica are using it as a secret communication to rave about Aryan Supremacy or something.

Looks like one of everything, which may actually be an interesting collection. I bet there are some $300 cameras in the lot, but there are plenty of $15 and $30 cameras, which would make it hard to consider as an investment. I think you'd have to sell half of them to break even. And that would be hard work.

I think this is a little crazy,

There are a ton, (or more probably:blink:) of cheaper cameras.

Aside from that, it's probably what my house is going to look like in a few years.............

Looks like it was sold for $35k, not bad.....I think..?

It was relisted shortly after the "sale."

What an asinine statement. I still own one Leica with a 50mm, had much more but sold it after Kodachrome, truly did not see the point of what is now *highly* overpriced gear for either digital or black and white.

Wow....I wouldn't even know were to put them all...you'd need to rent a warehouse....a camera repair/refurbish geek could make money on this.

I'll be darned! I thought the starting price of 35k was high. The whole lot sold for 60k.
Even if the top bidder bails out, there's still bids from six separate bidders over 55k.

Knowing eBay, that doesn't necessarily mean they transferred the cash.

M***a and t***m have many auctions so they should be legitimate buyers.
h***h, the winner, has only 3 auctions and might be an "illegitimate" buyer.

Without inspecting the collection in person it is, I think, quite difficult to assess the value. As said, most items as said to be good aesthetically and in good working condition which, if true, might place the average value above $30 per item.

We don't know whether or not the lot was inspected in person...
