Saw a Nikon lens of similar specs start at <$10 and end up at a fair price of >$1500.

Did I misread it? It seems to say the auction is for sets of five mugs, not one.

Probably correct - I didn't get past the price!

You can buy them for $50. Still too rich for my budget.

They'll be like those items you see on 'infomercials' for 3 payments of $49.99, then you see the same item 2 weeks later in "Cheap as Chips" type stores for $10!!

Needs to have the original 'box' to be worth real money.
These were handed out to journos for the recent Vancouver Olympics, so there's a collector's premium for the 'real thing'.

Just re-read this thread and looked at the photo properly.

I was actually referring to a genuine Nikon 70-200mm lens, not a mug.

Who's the mug now - I'll just crawl back in my box.
