    The lens' native habitat is a Xerox machine

    Oh, the same guy who sold some shady lens for just a million bucks. Yes, I do believe he should be institutionalized.

    From his eBay page:

    Contact information
    DallasVLADIMIR@aol.com >>> NO PHONE Calls... IT means NO In-coming Telephone CALLS are ACCEPTED. I'm NOT that TYPE a PERSON, WHO is SPEAKING to TELEPHONES.

    I am dazzled. He is not speaking to telephones. I wonder if he is willing to talk to, lets say, a hairdryer?

    Wait, there is more! For a mere 9 million he can sell you a company name, Typhoon Group.

    If you are even poorer than that, you can get the same lens for about 100k from him

    How about this title he has for an unmarked chrome projector tube? LECA S2 HASSELBLAD H3 68mm F2 645 MEDIUM FORMAT ANTIQUE LENS CINE RARE DOUBLET 221242507397. What a freeking moron.

    There's going to be some very disappointed buyers when they learn they should research a hunk of glass before buying, and not trust a shyster salesman. $1000 for a Taylor xerox lens already sold and several strange parts for $1650. I think this is one of those strange money laundering schemes you sometimes see on Ebay. The ones were $50 items keep selling for $1000. Or maybe there is a market for these strange parts.

    Well we have a saying here in Estonia - "Lollilt tulebki raha ära võtta", what means when translated roughly that you should take money away from a fool...but the seller in this case should be at least considered a burden to the state if you know what i mean.

    Possibly a money laundering scheme...

    Well, I do like that he offers customer support.

    "Hello? Yes, I just bought a POS Soviet aerial lens for one million dollars from you..."

    Hilarity ensues.
