    I found it on Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/3708236...in/photostream. From the available information I think it's the same person as on LFPI.

    It's kind of cool, but I don't think it's nine hundred dollars worth of "kind of cool".

    The lady of the house has to be a pretty swell sort of person to put up with the annoyance of a photographer.

    And still, no example photos!!! ARGH!

    it seems as if the one on ebay can focus with some sort of homebrew bag bellows.

    I assume one should distinguish between a collector and a user. I personally would find a high speed lens (with all its probable limitations) quite interesting for some applications.

    What is wrong with being handmade in the ROC? (And handmade items from there are getting scarce meanwhile.)

    If collectors would buy this sort of crap... I would quit my day job. I have a 1.9 WA Wolly Oscilloscope lens. Not only is it worth nothing, it takes up room.

    Well, somebody has bid on the camera (and has 26 bids running on other photographic items)! Maybe glue your lens on some random scrap camera body, ask as at least $1999.99, someone might buy!

    I believe that lens if from a photocopier. I think I have one of those lenses, but I have never used it. It makes a nice paperweight.

    I've seen collectors buy some stupid pieces of crap as "collectible odditys"
