Yesterday met up with a buyer for my 14mmL and the transaction goes smoothly. the same day during lunch time i wanna call another buyer for my fuji x100 but i keyed the wrong no and called the 14mmL buyer instead.
upon answering my phone call i realised my mistake. so i apologised and at the same time asked the buyer if the lens is ok. then he started complaining that the exterior of the lens got scratches at the red ring (He must have bought the lens just for the red ring). then i was like oookkk... and told him that this is a used lens so for sure there will be some user mark. (but i really take extreme good care of this lens and do not remember there is any serious scratches. minor scratches sure have.)
then the next moment he was asking me how ar? how ar? wah lao its not as if there is scratch on the lens element. or major scratches or dent etc. then he was saying he is feeling a bit sian now (confirm waiting for me to say give him discount etc which he did requested once after he agreed to the original price and reserved the lens). then since i got nothing much to say, i kept quiet. then he responded that he never check properly also then let off this case. then hang up the phone.
firstly, the lens is really in tip top condition.
secondly, the lens still got 1 mth warranty but in my BnS sales thread i take it as no warranty and sell $740 below market brand new pcs. just this point he benefited.
thirdly, my advice to all peeps if you are looking for 100% perfect items, please go straight to shop to buy brand new.
forthly, the lens is for you to take good pictures, not to admire at the red ring. sometimes i even gaffer the red ring to stay low profile and act as newbie.
