Hello All!
Not too familiar with medium format cameras, but thinking of bidding on
this one as it's the best bid price I have come across. Are there some
things in particular to watch for with the T series cameras? Any advice
would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks in advance!

Why would you think of bidding on this, since you are selling it?
Is this some kind of silly marketing effort? As far as the description
goes, the lenses could be completely hazy and the camera worthless.
Or it could be just fine.

And exactly what is he trying to hide with that stupid,
not-particularly-well focused close-up and no other pictures?

Well, he's got a lot of fools bidding on it. Notice also he is charging
$44 to ship the camera. That is probably a violation of ebay policy.
$10 is MORE than enough to ship it, "professionally packed" and
insured, anywhere in North America.

Maybe I'm missing something here, but I don't see anything terribly wrong
with this listing. Perhaps the shipping is on the high side, but compared
to other listings I've seen it's not outrageous, and as the shipping cost
is there on the page, it's up to you whether you bid or not.

As for the photos, there's a link to a page with tons of them, also the
photo on the item page has slideshow buttons. Perhaps he needed to have
the camera 'full frontal' as the first pic, but again hardly a flogging
offence.

His 'crime' it seems was his daft posting to this ng. Then again I almost
feel sorry for the guy as a person with a bit more nous would have got a
mate to post something.
