0 Feedback for seller. Beautiful Pictures. Either someone set up the auction format for a used camera store, or a whole bunch of scams going on. Look at sellers other auctions. 43 really nice and some rare items listed. I am very wary of zero-feedback Sellers with too many nice itms for sale all at once. If a seller had business sense, they would sell the cheap stuff first to gain credibility THEN put up the expensive stuff. To much candy all at once; irresistable, but is it real.

Seriously, I'd think long and hard before ever considering this -- you brought up many good points, Brian, in addition to the overall feasibility of this particular lens. You never know, it just might be the Cat's PJ's, but on the other hand it could be much less. A lot of Kinoptiks have been made from modified cine lenses, some good -- some bad. Kinoptik is still on my eBay search list and I happened across this today, but I'm not going to eBay anymore so I will not be coming aross things like this in the future :) :D ;) (I think that combination of faces sums it up)

Looking at the other itmes I saw Wollensak Velostigmat 127mm/f4.7 Screw Lens for Leica (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=30063&item=3880267844&rd=1)

It doesnt look like a telephoto- being newb, I don't have an understanding of how that lens gets that focal length. Can someone clue me in?

Is this an enlarger lens?

That is an enlarger lens. Most enlargers also use 39mm thread mount.

If you ever reach the point where you have a Visoflex/bellows or other copy set-up for the Leica RF, an enlarging lens makes a fine optic for documents and such. I have a home-made adapter for my Olympus OM bellows that permits me to use LTM lens to copy with my OM-1 or OM-2. It works just fine.

Could be an Estate or a post-divorce sale. A lot of nice stuff with pretty accurate descriptions. That takes it out of the garage sale buyer/seller classification.
