I probably will buy only if I can meet up with the seller to actually test, also if he would give me a weeks warranty.

just a bid thru auction, I guess not. had some bad experiences with a Polaroid. once bitten twice shy...

A risk you gotta take.

Depends on the condition of the camera for me. If it's acceptable and the price is attractive enough, definitely.

I've got my body (300D) and my tammy (17-50mm) as second hand units.

I've just started photography and I'm not how long this hobby can last me. Therefore, I don't see a point in spending so much money on first hand units.

There are some second hand stuff on sale at the forum which are really good price.

And being a very careless person, I don't really have to worry about taking extreme care about my gears. I've brought my cam to beaches, near sea water, getting splash with sand etc, and I don't feel my heart breaking.

I would.... but only if I get to test it and if the price is really much lower than a brand new one. :thumbsup:
