For half of the starting price i would sell my mint Kiron 105/2.8 in Pentax-KA mount Shocked Shocked Shocked ... And offer the shipping fees, too ...

And, moreover, the 'A' button on my lens is perfectly working ...

I don't know, but shouldn't we be careful with such a "shame list", no matter how justified it is? There are sellers out there that do not hesitate to sue forums like this one for slander or defamatory statements.

Perhaps you have right... In my opinion this is a shameful seller action, I don't think so he can do anything with this fact if somebody think and say this is shameful.

This is a list of shameful actions, not of shameful sellers Laughing

Shameless might be a better description, after all, that kind ofr asking price would suggest no shame on the seller's part to ask such an exorbitant price.

The bad thing is that it does drive up prices. Not because those items are selling, but because it makes cheaper overpriced items seem cheap.

I mean: let's assume the Kiron usually sells for $250. Now there are several sellers trying to sell one for $1000. You see these in your search results on eBay. If I now put one for sale for $500, my item looks cheap among the "overpriced" ones.
