    Well, if it's negatives you're looking for, I could leave one for Jim Galli. Before he sold me that 16" Goerz Artar, I needed it for just about every other shot I could have taken. I could hardly wait for it to get here. Now that it's here, I have yet to find a need for it. It must be a defective lens .

    Wow...does Cambridge even still exist? Their rep was soooo bad that even though they offered me a really good deal on a light meter some years ago face to face in the store, I was so distrustful I declined the offer and went over to Adorama and bought their 1 degree meter at bust out retail.

    I think they still exist as a mail order business, also as AAA Camera, and I think they are Airwatches on eBay. They probably still have a big warehouse of old stuff. I've actually purchased a couple of things from them--a battery pack for a Canon motor drive that was long out of production, but they had new in the store, and I think I got some Bronica thing from them once.

    Yup, they're airwatches on ebay. I got burned by them there too! They listed a Super Rollex with an opening bid of $49.95, I won it at the opening bid, mailed them a money order, they claimed they never got it, took me a few months to get a refund from the PO. At the time I was fairly convinced they got the MO, and just tore it up, as they didn't want to sell it that cheaply, after hearing who they are, I'm sure of it!

    With as many dubious sellers on e-bay as there seems to be, would it be possible to have a section on APUG devoted to bad e-bay experiences. I appreciate that we'd have to be careful what was said but provided that each experience was factual, it would be difficult to construe it as libellous. Anyway really dubious sellers would be unlikely to want to issue libel proceedings. They usually work on the principle that for every person who "discovers" them there is "the gullible" who like the poor will always be with us.

    If there are e-bay sellers, be they individuals or organisations, where caveat emptor applies in spades it would be nice if APUG members could protect each other.

    There's already a pretty well developed area for that on photo.net in the "neighbor-to-neighbor" section. I'm happy to let them moderate it.
