    Someone has done it before.

    Next morning he found out the camera he bought last night had turned into ashes.

    Hur hur hur. That would be something to see as not only did the seller morph into a wolf but changed sex as well

    i'm at a loss for words.

    anyway, it really isn't the best of ideas for the following reasons:

    1) urgency in testing and getting the deal over
    2) trying to determine sharpness is a pain in the night with smudgy high ISO and crappy void deck lighting.

    thankfully the buyer really had an underused lens as per sms exchange.
