I had a laugh this morning. These were listed one after another this morning. Thought I'd share:

And as far as shooting video goes, it seems like it would be near impossible to mount this sucker!

Anamorphic prices are confusing and frustrating. Pretty hard to put a value onto something unless you know every single lens. I've learned from experience... Bought a huge cheap projection lens, but still way to expensive for what it is (absolutely useless). Bought another bit smaller projection lens for more money.. Quality is great, usability isn't. Probably paid more than its worth. Finally I found a Kowa B&H, I think I got it for a pretty good price.. But I have no idea what the actual value is.

Oh well, that's life on eBay I guess :)

The key to scoring big on eBay is flexibility, mostly in the form of patience. That has been an expensive and hard-earned takeaway for me.
