Can you send me an RSS feed of your search daily? Any any live auctions, flea markets, and antique shops you find lenses in? You know, so everybody can get in on the fun...Competition is a good thing. For the seller, not buyers.
Sorry Emil - I (we?) thought you must have "jumped on" one of the objectives mentioned recently like the 6D, or Cooke IIe!
I can see both sides of the issue here. If you are looking to buy a lens and others point it out to potential bidders, it could drive up the price for all those interested (Good for seller, bad for buyer).... On the other hand, sometimes a buyer isnt aware of an auction and even if the item sells for more because its made more public via a forum, that buyer may have otherwised completely missed out on the auction (Good for buyer, good for seller).
Given there are at least two sides to this issue, lets all agree to disagree and get back to discussing some esoteric nugget about one of our favorite SF lenses. Like the fact that a direct decendant of Pinkham & Smith lives 4 miles from me! I need to call him - I believe he has a collection of P&S lenses.

Eastman Kodak Portrait Lens 4.8/305mm (12") just went for EUR 340 + 20% commission.
I had bid 320. I was hoping a kodak lens would not be as popular in a European auction. Just takes one person who wants it a little more than I.
