Wow. Thats a big drop on the price. maybe it was on amazon for a while and so they lowered the price?

Amazon does massive price drops like that occasionally.

I got my monitor from Amazon for 1 USD. 22 inch flat screen with integrated speakers, runs at 1600 x 1200. Normally costs 120 USD.

uhm, whats a more trusted site, amazon or ebay?

If it's Amazon that's selling it, then I'd trust Amazon more than eBay, but Amazon also has the "marketplace", so you'd be buying it from an independent seller. Sometimes when you buy things on "Amazon Marketplace" Amazon will fulfill the order, meaning that Amazon's return policy, etc. applies. Otherwise it's the sellers policy.

That lens is being sold by an independent seller, not Amazon.com.

^ It's not being sold on the marketplace, it is sold from a shop that is affiliated with Amazon. I have a friend who bought a few things from that shop and there were no problems.

I know someone who has a few Opteka lenses from there. The lenses aren't bad, but you have to remember you're paying around $30-100 for it. I've never seen them go for the retail price either. Fisheyes are usually expensive, so even if it turns out to be shit, the $30 you're putting in won't be that much of a loss.

1... dollar?
thats sick bro.

i love how sometimes there is used stuff that is like 90 percent cheaper, and as long as the reviews are good it is a great product.

also, buying something 25$ or more than buying everything that is 1 cent, so you dont have to pay shipping and you get free stuff! (well not free, but 1 cent is the closest you can get.)
