All is said in the title. Someone with a 100% positive feedback is selling a heavy tele lens pretending it is a Helios-44-2. That might look funny as it is. But what is impressive indeed is the price the seller aspires to get for a humble Helios. Or for an ordinary tele (a 200mm?), whithout even giving a picture of its front. Is not it a new word in digital marketing?

Indeed and the price is several times above market average quotation.

In any case I think this man is probably old and understanding nothing of lenses, maybe somebody gave him a grossly exaggerated opinion about the lens value and he believed it.

Somebody should contact him and tell him though .... then we can enjoy some fun answer or see the lens down to 40 euros ...

Ha-ha, the guy insists. I presume someone of you wrote to him. So, he changed the title. It's no more "Helios" but just an "Objektiv". And he cut the price to... 144,95 euros. So, it is not a mistake of him. He has a plan!
