    Our Buy & Sell forum has a search box specifically for that forum. It looks like this:

    In order to search more effectively, use the "*" wildcard.

    For example:
    A search for "25mm" will find a listing for "25mm f/1.8" but not "25/1.8" or "25 mm"
    A search for "25" will find a listing for "25/1.8" and "25 mm" but not "25mm f/1.8"
    A search for "25*" will find listings for "25/1.8", "25 mm", and "25mm f/1.8"

    See the example below:

    Always wondered why the search was seemingly random. This makes it clear. Thanks!

    Hi Amin,
    I tried this looking for a Pen-F.
    I put Pen* in the search box and got a "no result" return.
    But there's an ad for a Pen-F on the first page.
    What am I doing wrong?

    I tried, out of curiosity. Don't capitalize the p and it works fine. Capital P and its no result. Some sort of case sensitive glitch maybe..

    Is that only for the Buy&Sell forum?
    Is there a way to specify multiple words?
