    My guess is the seller is a scammer.

    I remember someone recently reported a scammer selling Linhof gear on E-Bay. Bumping the bid amount up $1,000,000 causes E-Bay to investigate so someone took it upon themselves to bid that much to get the attention of E-Bay.

    Ahhhhh, that's a great idea. But....what if it wasn't a scam. Oh no, then I'll be a mil in the hole.

    Ah... Greg, you must be right. I love Linhof, but sheesh, if I had a million to spend on a camera, why would I want or need one. Thanks, Michael.

    There's a discussion of this over at lfphoto.info on the Q&A forum. The seller is a scammer, and the bidders are bidding over 1 mil to attract the attention of eBay, which tends to be lax about following up on scam alerts. The pictures are from an auction by Adorama a few months ago, and the purchaser of that camera has been contacted just to be sure that they are not reselling it with Adorama's pictures.

    Here's the thread:

    The $5,655.00 that Adorama sold it for might as well be a million $ to me.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.
