    I'm afraid that unless you plan to investigate and police all this seller's
    camera listings, all you've done is delay the inevitable.

    WOW, I just saw the winning bid, i wonder if the buyer requested more photos first? if the outside of the camera looks like that, i wonder what the lens looks like on the inside?
    "Why thats one of those old black and white cameras aint it?"

    Another funny one ... and kinda weird. I emailed the seller on this auction asking him what made this Contax G1 rare because his price seemed high:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=160400241795

    And I'm not kidding, this was his actual and only response to me:

    " DO NOT JUDGE.LEST THU BE JUDGED."


    How do some people get positive feedback?

    Maybe the lens can be used for another body.

    I bought a "near mint" Crown Graphic that was just as much a "barn bind" as that Retina. Mold, rust, dust/dirt, mouse turds, bird poop, spider webs... everything you can imagine. The lens' shutter blades were completely rusted closed and nothing would move... everything completely locked down with corrosion. The purchase was a complete loss. The seller refused to reply to my inquiries. It wasn't worth the fight through eBay arbitration, PayPal arbitration, etc. Once you put hours into wasted time like this you've usually lost more money than you spent buying the junk and it's a tiresome/annoying process anyway. Fortunately I got it pretty cheap because he posted no pics and I bid low. I think I paid less than $100 with shipping. That still hurt.

    Just more proof (as if it was needed) that you can't trust digital photographs ;-)
