    I used to buy 2nd hands lens too and the lens did not give me any problem. But now, i'll think twice to buy a second hand.

    Why ask such questions when there are bound to be some bad experiences encountered by some of us here. Just like asking has anybody met an accident when crossing the road? If so, are you not going to cross the road for the rest of your life?

    I guess its all about taking risks and being prepared to avoid getting bad copies. So far I can say that majority of the CSers here are nice people who knows the rules of trade in the forum here.

    Happy trading!

    Tks, am already in the midst of contacting a couple of our fellow CSers to buy their lenses

    As for there being always gonna be bad experiences, my thinking is great to be able to hear some scenarios so i can learn.... like the many stories that our parents and even some grandparents like to tell us, we often glean useful warnings from certain bad experiences encountered.

    Seriously!?! How many of us REALLY listen to our parents?

    I suspect the people here listen to each other, muck around, take the risk rather then listen to the old folks.
