I'm choking here! :( I wonder what that thing can do that a Commercial Ektar can't, at 350.00 or so. With Ektar you get shutter, too.
Old lens prices are just ridiculous nowadays. I'm glad I loaded up when everyone thought they were junk, and sold 'em off cheap. :)

I thought that price was pretty high too, but then I saw that it comes with THE ORIGINAL CAP AND FLANGE.

The flange alone is worth a grand. I think Jim Galli bought one of these for $57 and some change. :D Of course it was missing the caps.

No it had the damn caps but if I sell the lens I'm keeping them.

BTW, comparing this lens to a Commercial Ektar is like when Clinton compared himself to John F. Kennedy.

The last one of those lenses that sold fetched about $2200. This sort of event happens from time to time on Ebay where you get 2 determined bidders with a pocket full of $$$$. I wonder if this will jar a few loose from collectors who never use them but figure the time for profit taking has arrived.

Aw, c'mon Jim, I think the Clinton/Kennedy thing is a bit unfair, don't you? I mean, I wouldn't demean a Holga by comparing it to Clinton. :D

It was Dan Quayle who compared himself to Kennedy and the response from the candidate he was debating responded "I worked with John F. Kennedy and You are no John F. Kennedy".

That was Lloyd Bentsen, US Senator from Illinois I believe. I think the actual quote went something like this - "I knew Jack Kennedy. I worked with Jack Kennedy, and you, sir, are NO JACK KENNEDY!".

I know you better than that Ash. First of all you don't have 5. Second of all you would have started a small trash fire a stall or 2 away and pinched the lens during the commotion. :cool:

Bentson was from Texas. You guys need to get out more.:-)

Ummm . . . don't you mean BENTSEN was from Texas?

Sorry. Couldn't resist.

O.K., so are we in agreement that it was Lloyd Bentsen, former Senator from Texas , who said the line and that he said it in response to Dan Quayle comparing himself to John Kennedy in the course of the vice presidential candidate's debates while Bentsen was running for VP on the Michael Dukakis ticket?

Not that Kennedy comparison... Jim was talking about the Clinton comparison to Kennedy as far as who had the most blondes in the Lincoln beddroom (wives not included).
