    Not much experience dealing with 2nd hand cameras, but my suggestions would be:

    1. Visual inspection to see for mold/fungus and whatever scratches.
    2. Take pictures and see if it is to your expected quality. Best if you could download to a PC and see it full size.
    3. Operations, get hold a copy of the manual and famliarise yourself with the different modes and controls and make sure they work expectedly.
