Today I was mostly writing an article for my photo tips website.

In the evening I also made some spiced fruit buns.

While I was waiting for the buns to rise, I checked my email and saw there was a Zeiss 35mm f/1.4 lens on ebay for Canon EF mount. I checked the auction and saw it had finished already. The winning bid was only £205?!?

The lens retails for $1,843.00 on B&H Photo. The seller was from Lithuania, and had no feedback. But even on auctions that look decidedly dodgy (this one just looks slightly dodgy), the ending price would be somewhere near normal value. I wish I'd checked my email earlier, as even if it is a dodgy auction, you'd be double protected by paying by card through paypal.
