Normally, I abhor the use of racial stereotypes, but I couldn't help but chuckle when I discovered the nationality of the creator of this amazing lens database

I did maintain an ebay prices database for a while but got bored with it, and only targetted things I was dreaming of buying. This guy uses a piece of software called "baywatcher pro" to track the prices though, making the whole thing much easier than it appears!

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

It's interesting to see that many lenses seem to be dropping in price over time; from reading posts on here and other forums, I was under the impression that they were getting more expensive!

Not sure if it's 'many' lenses; certainly some newer ones seem to be holding their price, especially if purchased before the big price rise last(?) year.

It depends on the lens. There is always a high demand for the rarer lenses or for those that happen to be the current fashion.

Where is he checking prices? It may have some bearing on whether they seem to be rising or falling.

I know the Dimitrov site's suggested prices and those of the other forum's review section often have little relation to those on ebay UK!
