    Holy crap.

    Someone snap this up before a collector buys it not to use. I want to see the images from this thing.

    farthest away it focuses is 6 feet? like a fisheye lens, this is a very very very special purpose lens you'll be waiting years for the correct use for.

    No Paypal, will take Skrill…anyone know what that is ( Skrillex little brother??)?

    Serbia??
    100% FB but only 30 some transactions but his record selling looks good.
    Probably completely legit but I'd be a bit hesitant for that pile of coin until I knew more about the money transfer.
    That is if I actually wanted it, which I don't.
    Which renders my contribution moot.


    Sorry guys

    Interesting attitude by seller when describing scratches on lens "only evident if you stick your nose up".

    First off.. No collector would touch that thing. Hand made POC. And for 900 bucks? In a pay system we have never heard of? Just take the money and flush it down the commode. Saves the postage and the carbon footprint.

Just t'other day a feller offered me a Leica 900mm f1.1 screw mount Elmar with Lufwaffe marking on it. I think I'll put my dough in that one, not the Graphic doodad. 'Course payment has to be made in World War II German Marks or Iraqi bills with Saddam Hussein on them.
    Be careful with that Luftwaffen lens. Many of those are fakes. I do have a prewar Wesphalia 100,000 mark coin. Trade you for a good condition Leica II.
