    Autofocus Nikon F2 on ebay

    You gonna jump on it? Probably pretty valuable. Needless to say, ahead of it's time.

    I thought I would do the seller involved a favor and let them know, especially since it is a vintage camera seller who has the current listing. This is the reply I got within just a few minutes of notifying them.

    "Dear lab16,

    I understand.
    Propblem is that item specifics are provided by ebay. It is not from my item description. And by new ebay rules I can;t list item on ebay unless I use item specifics.
    So that is where this error coms from,
    Rokas"

    Appears that once again eBay is making ridiculous rules.

    Recognize the name and see that guy's stuff often. I'm guessing he's also in the underwater salvage/shipwreck recovery business judging from the look of the stuff he often auctions off. Creepy.

    Yeah, now when you list in the photo section you have to choose an item out of the catalog that matches what you're selling. Unfortunately the catalog isn't anywhere close to being complete. It is supposed to help the buyers find what they are looking for, but due to there being so many variations of similar camera gear it is just plain confusing.

    Yeah, high prices for rough-looking gear usually. Never bought from him, but he is prolific so he must get buyers.

    You can bypass the canned description when you list an item. Most of them are laughably inaccurate. It's obvious the writer has no clue. Sounds like they're outsourcing the writing to some third world hell hole to save a few cents. But if it had an SD card slot I'd get it; CF is just too outdated.
