i think we should make the link to price guide as a sticky in all BUY/SELL sub-forums. Apparantly, some people have no concept of a "resale" and no idea whatsoever of depreciation. Without a reference to the price guide, few naive buyers might be conned or rather befooled to buy a used product at the price of brand new one.
IMHO, a used product is a used one...no matter how well kept or no matter if just used for a month. Anything less than the difference of 20% from the "current market" price - not the price at which the owner bought the lens, does not warrant a buy.
This fellew CSer is selling a lens which you might get at the same price in the brand new condition from the shop itself. Or maybe, perhaps 10 20 more, but then its the price you pay for peace of mind.
