    Potential buyer: After inspecting the lens with a loupe and a LED/UV torch light for 30 minutes with the utmost scrutiny...

    "Sorry, but there is a single speck of dust. You will have to lower the selling price otherwise I am not able to except the lens in this condition".

    General Photography Chat mah.....how many photographer have or will be in the same condition, i figured might as well come out with a list of the most frequent discount request lines or even the most fantastic ones.

    That way...they might think up something original or at least have a guide to refer to.
