    Re: Expensive fake lens boards !

    I won't put any lens over $150,00 in one of these , 6 pieces glued on , no tongue and groove joints . Some go for $22,0 which is fair but now some are being sold for $99,00 and up to $199,00 !!!

    Re: Expensive fake lens boards !

    No . I'm referring to the ones that even my 8 year old can make . I'm not against capitalism ! I'm all for it ! I'm against the exploitation and false claim of authenticity .
