know the market before you sell.
ethical problems on both the buyer and seller ends la..can't be helped..
so buyers must also do a bit of historical market research.lol.
I don't think its wrong of them to sell as according to the market price, assuming the item is in a condition that is acceptable to buyers. The only reason why you'd feel that way is probably because you'd be "losing out" in a sense while someone else breaks even.
for example, if oil became a scarce resource, just because i bought it at $1.87 per litre doesn't mean i don't have the license to sell it at $2 per litre when there is an oil crisis. or $20, or $200.
same goes for any other commodity, most of which are not necessities.
are you going to berate the people who get limited edition collectibles and make a 200000% profit? no! so why should you criticise camera/lens sellers if they sell at correct current market price?
It's supply and demand. Willing buyer, willing seller, everything above board and transparent... then it's ok.
yeah, it is the sense of getting cheated in that sense cause that guy breaks even. jealousy?
you're not forced to buy from them. think the price is ridiculous? don't buy! go buy a new one!
seriously, the prices in B&S here are ridiculous. 10% off a new lens with warranty and they expect to sell? i won't buy anything 2nd hand if it's less than 30% off a new one.
[QUOTE] There's absolutely nothing wrong with what you just described. If you bought your lens and $1.2k, and then you feel like selling it at $1.1k, please let me know.... But don't say I cheat you hor... because you did it to yourself.
/QUOTE]I totally agree...Very ridiculous to see such claims.Just because I bought some lens last year before the price increases, why should I sell at below the market value?
yeah, we must like the market do it's work, then just follow it. buyers and sellers alike.
Appreciate everyone's view here. Learnt something.
