3000 no way , 2k no way.  Not even 1k for me to jump. I would have to sell a million parts to make it worth while and still have a sct i would never be happy with.

Like I mentioned before, a questionable seller. The old link shows it as sold. I had noticed before that he's one of those sellers that sells using duplicate listings for the same item. A blatant violation of ebay rules.

 

I bought a Unitron tripod from another seller that also used the duplicate listing scam and it was like pulling teeth to finally get it shipped to me.

Worth about $500 as is, looks to need complete restoration. Good luck finding the correct tripod/wedge for it. Guy is dreaming.

He is nuts.  My friend had a C10 and it was nothing to write home about.  6K would buy 2 used C14's.

TS series pretty common on Japanese Yahoo auctions. My long f/ratio is labeled semi-apo. If I remember correctly, long f/ratio came before the short ratio.
