My age-related woes dictate a divorce from DSLRs. I am offering the following at auction according to the stated terms:(A) Nikon D750 body. (B) Nikkor 24-85mm, 3.5/4.5G ED VR. (C) Nikkor 50mm 1.8 AIS manual focus pancake. And (D) Voigtlander 28mm 2.8 Color Skopar
Nikon mount. Details of the items items are below.

TERMS: Limited to Continental United States. Bids in at least $1.00 increments to be made only as replies to this posting. No bids will be accepted as PMs---personal messages. On each item, Pilot 6 will make the opening bid stated below which will be his ONLY bid. Bidding will end at 12 midnight EDT on the UHH clock, Sunday, Oct. 7, 2018, and winners will be announced in the digest the following day. The UHH clock will be the game clock and will decide ties, the earlier bid received prevailing. Status of the four auctions will be posted daily in the classified section of the digest. Pilot 6 reserves the right to ad to or subtract from this posting, but not to alter the fundamental terms of it.

DETAILS: (A) Nikon D750 bought new by me on August 16 this year from Shutterbug in Eugene, OR (sales slip included) as part of 24-120 kit. Body is USA, has less than 100 shutter count, is like brand new and is unregistered with Nikon. Includes all paper work and manuals, body cap, Nikon battery and charger, strap, software, after-market battery, screen protector and shipping.
Opening bid is $800.00.

(B) 24-85 Nikkor 3.5/4.5G ED VR In excellent condition. Includes caps, hood, Hoya UV filter, bag and shipping.
Opening bid is $200.00.

(C) Nikkor 50mm 1.8 AIS pancake in excellent condition. This is one of the very sharpest of all Nikon lenses, has creamy-smooth focusing, tank-like build, and is tiny and unobtrusive---ideal for street shooting. Includes caps, Pro-Master UV filter and shipping.
Opening bid is $100.00

(D) Voigtlander Color Skopar 28mm 2.8 is the last and best version of this lens made in Japan by Cosina, and now discontinued. Although there are a few of these around in Canon mounts, this one in Nikon mount is fully meter-coupled and quite rare. I was able to find it new on line in Hongkong where I paid $500.00 for it about a year ago. The very small size (same as the Nikkor pancake) makes even a D810 less intimidating. It is of all metal build, ultra sharp with focusing as smooth as a "baby's bottom". This one is like new. Includes caps, bag, B+W UV filter and shipping.
Opening bid is $250.00

PAYMENT: Any practical way other than Paypal.

QUESTIONS: Please PM Pilot 6.

Inasmuch as the auction started in four separate parts, it must remain so until completion. As a solution I propose the following division of your bid which is based on the fact no interest has been shown on B, C and D.

A $972.00, B $201.00, C $101.00, D 251.00. (revision)

One or even two winning bids for me is a loser. I will up my bid to $1,600. If that is more than the indidual totals, you can allocate as you see fit and declare me the winner of each item. I just cannot take the chance of being the proud owner of 1,2 or 3 lenses and no camera. Hope you can see my issue. And I still wish the very best for you.

Not sure that I am following all the proceedings correctly but if the bid for A (the camera) is $972 then I will raise my bid to $1030.

Hi Pilot, is the 50mm f/1.8 still available? Is it the all metal construction version? If so I'll open the bidding @ $101.00

Still available. It is all metal except for the focusing ring which is molded plastic. Serial no. is 4244260. The more valuable, and earlier version's focusing ring is metal covered with rubber, and focuses more closely than the 2f/0.6m of this one. I've been told that these pancakes, the old series E 50mm and the current 50mm AF 1.8D, all have the same optical design which has garnered such glowing praise.
Let me know if you want to make a bid.

Okay, thanks for the info. I was hoping it was the earlier version. I've already got a couple of the 50 1.8D's, per Nikon's spec sheet they are good down to 1.5f/0.45m. I'll pass on making a bid, good luck with the auction.

I must rescind my bid of $1030 for A, the camera, and will defer to the guy who wants the whole package.
Sorry
