Default I Just Don't Get It

On a certain web site their is currently an auction for a DA 15 F4. As of now the high bid is about $600-this is for a used lens. I checked with my local dealer and I can buy a new one for $540. Wish I had a bridge for sale!

LOL! I often wonder about some of the bids I see for lenses - on the one hand it could be someone who's clueless about the worth of the lens or on the other hand, it could be a friend bidding it up. That might easily backfire though - aren't there fees to be paid by the seller?

People are strange about auctions. Once they start competitive bidding, they have to keep going beyond the point of reason.
Once an item gets beyond the price I previously decided was reasonable, I don't get it, either.

The final price was $600-I guess there is one born every minute.

Winding down Biro. I still have about 20 to sell. I've invested the sales money in Carl Zeiss Jena lenses. Quite a jump in lens IQ as a result.
