    Rodenstock Lens Wrench on ebay

    Once again a word to the wise. This weekend a Rodenstock Lens Wrench was auctioned for $39.50 on eBay.

    If anyone is tepted to bid on the wrench in the future or wants to buy them our Suggested list Price for the wrench is $16.00 and they can be ordered from any camera store. most dealers will probably discount from our list price or, at least, not sell it for 2x+ list price as it was just auctioned for.

    If you want one and have problems finding one let us know and we will help you locate one at a reasonable cost.

    I'm not surprised. Lenses often go on ebay for somewhat higher prices than B&H n ew US warranty. Amazing.

    I'm suprised Bob isn't putting those lens wrenches on E-Bay himself to make a little more money.

    Bogen 3047's often go for more than the new price.

    Another big scam on Ebay is the Toyo 3.x Ground Glass focusing Loupe ($39.95 at B&H Photo retail) which every two weeks gets sold on Ebay for 90% of its retail cost. One is currently being auctioned and with 5 day left 8 people have already gleefully driven the bidding to $41.00 (Duh!@#).

    Its amazing. Put a Toyo Loupe up for auction, and within hours people have already bid what should be the final price for a used product (about $25-- $30 at the most). "Idiot out at first,... Idiot out at 2nd, Double Play!!!"
