    Dang, when did the Canadian dollar become so much stronger than the US Dollar?
    Guess I haven't been paying attention.

    No kidding Jeff! I've got a few things as well. Makes me wonder if it was a prank. I am pretty sure he'll never see payment for this.

    All it takes to sell anything at any price is one idiot.

    The fractured grammar/spelling probably helped the scam along. Would be fun to see if the deal actually goes through!

    The reason this lens is one I looked at is that many years ago, back in 1974, I had a Leica M3 with the same lens. I had bought it for myself on my 16th birthday. I loved it so much, an amazing thing to own and use. So my "best friend" of 5 years asks me if he could borrow it for the weekend. I said yes. A year later, I get it back, only after writing a letter to his parents since he would not answer calls, etc. When his dad brings it over, the lens on it isn't my lovely 35mm but a crappy 50 mm collapsible. They denied that the lens was different! Nice, eh?

    Ouch! Letting friends borrow things is always risky. I've been on the borrower end and the very first trip out with a Fuji GW690 III I dropped it off the edge of the Grand Canyon. It was still fine with almost zero scratches, but nevertheless.....

    The M3 from the same seller sold for even more, without the lens (apparently to the same bidder, with a feedback score of 465):
