You don't seem to have placed your bid yet.

Yes, sniping is a good idea, save getting in a bidding war otherwise it might double in price!

Yes, really cheap! Just the cost of a couple of K-1's. Does it come with a bag of peanuts too?

Looks rather marked/ scuffed in places for an item that has only been got out of the box for the photos of it!

There's something odd about it. This page link suggests only 300 were made with serial numbers from XM001 to XM300. The eBay one is XM318. And I agree, it looks pretty tatty, not like the one photographed on that linked to web page.
That eBay one couldn't be a fake could it? Of course, the article could be misinformed but spending over four grand would require serious research.
Bojidar Dimitrov confirms only 300 were made. 318 is out of range.

I'd have thought the lens serial numbers should be very close as well. They're not.

The speed setting dial on the ebay one is coloured differently to the linked to (mir.com) page as is the film speed setting dial.

The supplied certificate of authenticity with the eBay one has no details completed.

The serial number on the base looks to be stuck on rather than engraved as shown on the one on the mir.com page.

Stu, I'd pass on it if I were you! Reported as suspect counterfeit item.
