    Strange. There positively is some massive shill bidding going on - even the most insane collectors buy their lenses at a fraction of the price and with known pedigree at some high profile auction like Westlicht or Sotheby's.

    Curses... out-bid again.

    I bid up to $38,997.99, but was out-bid by someone, at the last moment !

    One penny more, and that #%^$ lens would be mine - all mine !

    I used to use one of these lenses. The brightness and lack of depth of field has to be seen to be believed. The image would pop in an out of focus very quickly. The experience is not worth what this one "sold" for though.

    Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you do criticize them you'll be
    a mile away and you'll have their shoes.
