    But that person has no dignity/integrity/ethics in doing such stuffs. Anyway it's not about the $10 man, it's about the principles!
    I do agreed that it is not about the money but the principles.

    It's not your fault that you are trusting. How can the victim be at fault in this case?

    Ya, this is damn true. But also compare the purchase price of the good the seller paid to the price his bid price. I personally find it CHEAP of sellers who brought canon 17-55 F2.8 to sell at 1.2k when the seller brought the item at 1.2k a year ago. Just because the price went to 1.4k++ in the market, those cheapo are trying to cover their loss by selling at the price they paid for the lens. Haiz....

    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.

    i think it's fine.

    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?

    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.

    It's supply and demand. Willing buyer, willing seller, everything above board and transparent... then it's ok.

    It's the market mechanism at work. There's nothing wrong with this, and do avoid applying such labels to people liberally.

    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.

    I think you meant 'without' warranty right? That's why there are many repost and 'reduced price' postings

    /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?

    You must understand that these people may have bought from Courts or Harvey Normans, etc... so they price they are trying to sell may be 30% off what they paid. However, they will soon realise that they cannot sell at those prices and adjust their expectations accordingly.
