 I just bought a £12 job lot of used (and possibly faulty) lenses on eBay. To "Complement your purchase" eBay then offered me:

A bellows unit at £350, and another at £299.99
A Nikon lens at £750
and a used DSLR at £250 (and well overpriced considering the model etc.)

I think that their algorithm for these suggestions needs work!

Hey at least it's the right ballpark. I get some seriously weird recommendations that are just... random.

Fair enough. The one I usually have fun with is the little cloth bags I buy for the lenses that don't have cases - they're actually intended for small wedding gifts, the things someone might give away as a souvenir of the marriage, so every time I buy some I get a few days of offers for cake decorations etc.

I once searched ebay for a camoflage belt for a present.

Now it thinks I'm a survivalist.
