what's with ebay?

how are people on ebay so irresponsible with their money? i'm following some auctions right now and trying to grab some cheap lenses if i can.

but that barely ever happens. most of the time, it's idiocy like nikon SB-400 going for $90-$100 (it's $120 new), and SB-600s easily passing the $200 mark. 35mm f/1.8G buyers are the most idiotic, the lowest those go for is $170 and they break $200 easily (the lens is under $200 new). 50mm f/1.8 and 50mm f/1.4 also go for only 5-10% off the brand new price, and i've seen them go for over new price ($110/$280) a lot. wow.

i guess it's kind of hilarious to watch, but it's a little frustrating when you have holiday money left over to spend that you don't wanna waste haha.
