oh good, the other guy is here.
can i ask why you giggled?
I do not know that registering online got 3 more months of warranty for lenses. However, without a receipt how you can register? He did mention that he will send me a soft copy, but why should I believe him?
I think for this case having heard both sides of the story, I am inclined towards the seller, major factor is... buyer shouldn't have touched the element at all. Anyone can say sorry after the fact but still... it's not right to ever do that with something not yours.
I do notice alot of disputes especially in B&S, there is a lot of discretion... lowballers asking too low, but to them the sellers is asking too much and on the other hand the sellers... I have seen items listed as 10/10 or mint and the picture or the item shows at best 8/10.
Never ending lah... but there are certain things both buyers and sellers should observed right? like never drop the item, no touching the elements etc..etc.. Basic common courtesy.
Additional 3 months warranty applies when it has been registered online, applies for all Canon Singapore camera bodies or lenses.
This should be a lesson to the buyer you shouldn't touch the elements with your finger unless you have already paid for it. In future bring your own dust blower or bright torch light to inspect the lens. It is your responsibility as you are the buyer.
if u are really not satisfy w the len, u can just tell the seller "sorry for taking ur time, but i prefer not to buy ur len, thank u and bye". there always other chances for u to buy the len u wanted frm another seller in B & S.. so what are u trying to prove by doing all those action?? ......
Dude, i don't have to say much anymore... let the CS community here be the judge, i presented the facts, and thats it. i didn't force you to buy or anything, i parted ways with you calmly... and to me, that's it, am just sharing my experience in dealing with you.
i wish many more good deals for you in time to come...
and for CS bros and sis, i just want to let you know that a gentleman bought the (cheap lens, as he was saying) 55-200mm vr today, and if it is a fungus in the front element, we could always see a complain about it here... right?
the gentleman inspected the lens, he is fine with it, he is knowledgeable enough to know that he can register it online, and he can get 3 more mos. of extra warranty, we parted ways nicely with an agreement that if he would need the actual reciept i would email a copy to him. (i bought the lens together with my D5000 kit set, hence it's under one reciept.)
again, thank you all for your concern and for simply reading this thread.
