    Okay, this is getting ridiculous...

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=ADME:B:EOIBUAA:US:11&Item=7607957163

    Okay, it's a ulf lens, but over $4,000 for a "condition 6 out of 10" f/21 uncoated barrel lens? I think this will be remembered as a year of madness on the ebay large format section...

    If so, there seems to be a lot of madmen around - 13 bids. As long as there are people willing to part with their money, he'd be a fool not to ask for as much as the market will bear...

    On the side note: Looks like these are becoming the new aligator-clad gold-plated leicas, no offense to our Chinese brethren.

    The seller can now change his handle from "iluv2golf" to "icanafford2golf".

    After the auction closes, "icanafford2golf" might change to "icanaffordtotipmycaddy". ;-)

    At this rate, it won't be long before Schneider can start promoting the XXLs as "the affordable modern alternative".

    Is this a late April 1 item?

    On the other hand, there are some lenses that are completely ignored; I just bought a 500mm Krauss Tessar for my 11x14 camera for 190 dollars, and a Cooke Ser. IX 480mm lens for only 89 dollars!
    Protars and Dagors are fine lenses, but probably over-priced and over-rated. I have 3 Protars and 3 Dagors, but there are alternatives which are easily comparable; for example, I bought a 24 inch Red Dot Artar for just a little more than 400 dollars.

    Hopefully the Chinese are purchasing these overpriced lenses from some unemployed American factory worker who needs the money...
