    I was once ask if $300 can do for a Tamron 28-75mm F2.8...

    Was bad mood that time and I really flamed up over those jokers.

    You should have said "$200 of course Can". I think he/she was offering you his/her 85mm for $200. Now that's a good deal...

    you can't beat this, i post item for say, $X

    then the lowballer will PM or SMS me:

    fast deal. $X/2. on?

    at the first few times i got this kind of rubbish, i felt insulted. i would reply them politely nonetheless that the price was too low. nowadays, i don't bother replying. the attitude is like they are doing me a favour to get the item off my hands at half the market price. in fact, less than that, because i will usually price my items slightly below.

    I had a friend who went ahead with this kind of deals in the past. Not with camera stuffs la.

    For those who gave him a lowball, he gave them an aeroplane in return

    I came across alot of low ballers in cs BnS. Sometimes I dun even bother to reply them and when I'm in a bad mood, I tell them off. I rmb once, this fellow make me so piss off and insist that the price he quoted was a very fair price. I reply to him saying that since u r so budget and why u take up photography? Stay shooting with ur kit lens better.
