Thread: Who will insist on buy 2nd lens with box, manual, plastic, foam....

  1. #1

    Default Who will insist on buy 2nd lens with box, manual, plastic, foam....

    Have been meeting ppl who want lens with box.

    Price ok then ask got box. NO BOX = NO DEAL!

    Last week meet up with one at Clementi and turn away because NO BOX...on the spot!!! I was because he should have ask 1st. Maybe my fault (I assume) because i think everyone here understand 2nd lens will not have any box with it because myself normally do not keep unless is camera.

    Today one more guy!! Rational....will be difficult to resell again in future.

    Just curious how many of us here will not buy 2nd lens without box and box item like plastic bag, foam etc.

    For me, as long as the lens is good then should be ok, box will be bonus if have ..if dont have also never mind as not going to mount the box to camera mah haha!! or just pass them DHL 5kg box ..tell them, FOC.. haha!

    tell them if they want box can. go to the shop to buy the box loh.. the box maybe cost few hundred more than then used lens.

    i normally keep the box and packaging materials
    then when i sell the item, i will repackage the item
    and let the new owner have that new toy experience

    open box, remove packaging and take out item

    I like the idea. I believe buyer will be very happy.

    But the worst nightmare for seller will be....how is the condition of the 'BOX"!

    same for me... the buyer last mintue pull out because no box also...

    If buyer want buy 2nd hand lens and still want box.. then maybe go buy 1st first better that one confirm got box one....

    Maybe next time I buy cloth I will insist to the shop if the cloth dont have the clear plastic sheet I don't buy.... lolz....

    If everyone follows this, most buyers would be happy!

    I believe this is a good practice to follow. Although if you have 56821 lenes, then I guess keeping the boxes for each of them is gonna be *omg*

    That's just one of the dumbest things I've ever heard.

    My boxes go straight to the recycling bin. And when I buy 2nd hand lens, as long as the lens is working, who cares.

    maybe TS could have indicate in his WTS thread that no box is included or kit lens so no box ?
    i like my 2nd hand lens with box, just have some sort of value in it even though is just a piece of cardboard.
    but i do use the box to store the lens when not in use.
    of cos if the price is cheaper without the box then why not ?
