I knew the guy was 'trolling' when he asked how much the lens was worth. It seems he is still trying to find out by having such a high reserve and then saying 'make an offer.' Don't take the bait!
I didn't notice that it is a best offer auction. There doesn't seem to be anything wrong with that. My advice to the seller would have been to use a normal no reserve auction starting at the lowest price possible. This generates more interest and hard to find lenses usually sell for higher $$$ (or ###) this way.
I didn't know the seller was 'trolling' on this forum until after I had posted the link, Just thought it is an incredible BIN price.
I remember his prior thread. Maybe uncoated wideangle Dagors are bigger collector items than I thought, but my impression was that the small Dagors just aren't that desirable. 150mm lens with 100 degrees of coverage at f/32---sounds nice, but the Protar Vs are a lot cheaper.
140180484789 has anyone ever taken a picture with one of these things? Examples?
I have a 6.5 inch f8 wide angle gold dot dagor in mint condition in its original synchro Compur shutter which is a great performer within its limitations, ideal for backpacking, If I am close to my car and need great coverage and or a wide aperture I use my 165mm Super Angulon, for the Dagor I paid £250 sterling (approx. $500) plus a shutter service approx. $80 I can't comprehend why anyone would pay £5000 or anywhere near for an older uncoated specimen in an inferior shutter even if it is rare I would have thought $150-300 to be more realistic, even at that I would need to be very wealthy to justify the purchase.
