Somehow this seems to sum up most stuff posted on Craigslist.  I've 
been following camera's on there for the last couple years.  In that 
time I've purchased one 4x5 View Camera, it was a fair deal, and I 
wanted the lens (really glad I got it as I love the camera as well). 
I've not gotten any 35mm or Medium Format gear though.  With most of 
the stuff I see that I might be interested in, the sellers seem to 
have a very inflated sense of value.
