I've bid on ebay unsuccessfully on five different auctions for an 85mm f/1.8 Nikkor. Here were the ending prices: $265 $275 $203.50 (damaged unit) $292.50 $288.50 My high bid was $250. Since the lens can be bought new (gray market) for $319, I didn't think a higher price made any sense. I ran across another auction today, and jumped on the buy-now price of $235. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dl...;item=3872075137&rd=1&ssPageName=WDVW Now I sit back and wait, and see if the pictures were of the actual unit... and if he leaves the UV filter on it. Can't wait .
