The eBay auction has all the indications of a scam.
Try calling Blake at Aquatica directly (see www.aquatica.ca for #). He recently sold me a new S2 housing with minor paint blemishes for a considerable discount.
I asked Blake this question at DEMA. 18456 is the correct ring for the 12-14 DX. The same ring as used with the Sigma 14mm.
14n for $3,000?!?!?

NEVER NEVER NEVER pay for a high ticket item on ebay with a Money Order or Wire Transfer. I speak from painful personal experience, I got suckered into a sweet deal on an S2. I sent off $1400 and 2 months later I'm still waiting for the camera. The auction turned out to be a hoax.
Any reputable dealer on eBay will accept PayPal or similar, and that way the buyer has some protection if the seller defaults. Western Union have strong warnings on their website that Money Orders should be used only to send cash to family members or close friends that you trust completely.
