Here is one sold on the Bay for US$700! http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=110133342168

I have just ordered one from my local camera shop for about 40% of that price, they said it would come from Japan.

Is there something I dont know? Is there more than one of these type devices? The functionality specified was to use auto focus with manual lenses.

I think it's proving that ebay some times should be called idiotbay instead. Not only this item (which I'm about to order new from Scandinavian Photo for equiv 255 USD) is sold over the retail price, I've also seen the FA 50 mm 1.4 sell for substantially more than what I paid for a new one from Cyberphoto. People don't do their homework and get carried away whenbidding. Just buy your converter new with confidence and do as May West, cry all the way to the bank.

They they accept mail orders from outside the EU too, and then you won't even have topay the VAT!Mail them and ask what their price without VAT (25%) but including shipping would be. Their webpage is in Swedish, but there's no problem to mail them in English.
