Just back from a lens viewing/deal from BnS listed thread CS bro and very disappointed....

Condition was stated 10/10, no dust, no fungus and no scratch.

And seconds within the moment I look into the lens..... I saw a big bright crack at the extreme corner.... some fungus and lots of dust. Internal dust somemore.... wasted my trip and a piece of lens tissue to clean the front element..... haiz....

Lucky I learn quick a few tricks of how to check lens from a friend of mine... but then, only use <10% of what I learn on this deal coz it was blatantly obvious.

How to manage such cases? Purely Innocent or plain unethical?

You actually bought the lens when the condition stated is not the actual condition of the lens?

He never state whether did he purchase the lens after viewing.
I know of some buyers who go ahead to purchase the items even if the condition is not as stated. :dunno:

There will be many questionable buyer/seller in CS.

I once sold a new cam/lens to someone, confidently told him that it was mint, super well taken care of,etc etc.. And he said "As long as its works.."

Wah, very shock to hear this from a photographer!
True enough, very soon after, he's trying to sell it here for a S$50 profit...lol:bsmilie:

And I really doubt he'll be the kind who'll take care of the lens. "As long as it works"..

You are right.
Buy at low price, even bargain with sellers.
After that few days later, sell on BnS at a higher price.

Sorry bros for causing the confusion. Nope, did not buy in the end.

Wasted a piece of my lens tissue in a futile attempt to clean the lens too :bsmilie:

Haha, you shouldn't even waste that piece of lens tissue man. :bsmilie:
Why not just exposed his nick so that potential buyers will not waste their time to deal with him.
