    waha... not a matter of discount a not, is when sum is agreed on before meet, shouldnt ask for lessr price later loh. I dun mind to throw in more things in the package sometime, if i find the other party will need it together w e item sold.

    I have bought and sold like 8-10 lens already in B&S

    Most people just take a look at the front, back then ok.

    I don't think I have met one who do test shots. Maybe most of my lens I sold has warranty so never mind.

    And when I sell stuff, it is always at my place. So if the buyer check the condition and nitpicks, he can just don't buy. I don't waste any of my time. I try to state condition as clearly as possible but some people has super eyes or something

    i would prefer the buyer to request for discount b4 bidding or buying , and not meet up and request discount. i would feel that the deal might fail through and waste time to meet up. =)

    yup, i feel better if they request to view the item at my place. I find it troublesome to bring out if the person is undecisive about buying..

    Hi everyone, got a question to ask. I'm about to get a second hand 80-200mm F2.8 lens the version before the AFS one and I find that there is a black speck of dust on the inside of the lens, the lens is only like 3 months old, still has warranty and the price is quite ok, was wondering if I should go for it? Or go for another one that doesn't have that black speck? I assume it's dust though.

    if it is inside the lens, I do not think you can remove it yourself. If you dun feel good and abt it and not sure if it will affect your pics, then walk away..

    Hi there, thanks for your reply! I'm just wondering cause it doesn't really make me feel good and so far it doesn't affect the image. Just wondering if it is a serious problem or it's nothing serious, since the time when I think should have serious consideration is when there is fungus on it or something? I'm actually not sure if it is a serious problem and if it's not, then I'll just get it and probably see if can get it cleaned by NSC another time since it's still under warranty. Thanks!

    If it is still under waranty, then get it cleaned for peace of mind. Then again, it is a hassle so its another consideration when deciding the lens

    if your camera has LV, that'd be very easy...

    Hand hold the camera, zoom in, check the image shown on the screen, then half press the shutter button (activate the IS), compare the image lively shown on the screen, the difference is very obvious. Try it at home first, you will see....
