    Cameras are electronic items, some of which are prone to problems and too expensive to repair. That is why I cant understand why some people would want to save $30 buying a used camera which costs $600 new! That is too great a risk to take! Better buy new unless the savings is like 20% at least!

    Agree with you.

    But people's eyes lights up whenever there is a "bargain" or a cheaper price item.

    Must resist that and buy a brand new one instead. It is safer.

    Wah...don't "One bamboo pole strike down one boat-full of photography sellers" mah.

    I've not sold anything here (yet), but have bought several items from people here already. Have been happy with all of them so far.

    I still think only a small number of people here are dishonest...having said that, traders (both buyers and sellers) have to be careful. (I think I've seen some other threads here complaining about buyers.)

    Honestly, 22k is still nowhere near the 100k/150k actuations that modern shutter units are tested for. Don't worry too much about shutter counts, just go out and shoot, chances are the shutter will still work long after you've upgraded
