Arrrgghhhhhhhh !!!!!!

there was local person selling three (3) SB-800's and two (2) SB-600's for $600.00 USD, so I went to his house wich is about 10 Min. from mine, when I parked and started walking up the driveway, another person came walking down with them in his hands, I asked him if they where the ones on sale, he said. "yeah and I offered all I had, $500.00 and he accepted" , arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, I went and knocked on the door anyway, just to have that confirmed...... the person said he sold everything because he just gave up on photography......... he had a sick family member and just couldn't do it anymore.
arghhhhhhhhhhhh $500.00 arghhhhhhhhhh
he also sold a Nikon 85mm 1.4 and a Nikon 50mm 1.2 for $350.00
a Nikon 600mm f4 VR for .... $2,500usd that freaking lens is worth $10,000usd

he showed me the damn receipt, I dont know if the guy was just lonely and wanted to talk.. or just wanted to make me feel worse by telling me his story and all the things he sold.

Re: Arrrgghhhhhhhh !!!!!!


she only knew about me going to buy some flashes, if I bought the lens dont know how i would have hidden it, it's huge.
big trouble if I would have bought it, no matter if it was that cheap.
