I was trying to figure out if this was a scam auction. While I was quickly checking feedback looking for email links in the description directing you to their "real" email address etc, someone bought it. It seems legit and most likely a case where the seller made a horrible error in the listing price. They seem to know what they have and relative values. If you check the price of the o'connor head and sticks their other auction, it is low but at least in the ball park. The filters in the camera package could cost as much as the buy it now price. Now that I've built it up. Click on the link to see the greatest camera buy in the history of ebay.

Wow. The seller is definitely crying in his beer tonight. What a blunder!

Something really screwy with that auction. Can't see the buyer really getting the camera package at that price.

You nearly gave me a heart attack! I'm glad it didn't actually sell for 2k, because if it did I'd be so depressed I missed out on that deal.


Oh thank god!
