    Seen all those items cheaper.
    Also you have a zero rating.
    Good luck.

    Mr.T Guest

    That's something that puzzles me, how does one actually get a rating when
    people won't buy if you don't have one, and many advertisers even state
    "don't bother bidding without one".
    Are you supposed to sell stuff to yourself just to establish a rating I
    wonder? If you did, it would hardly prove anything.

    MrT.

    and? A melbourne buyer shouldn't be put off because they can easily come
    and pick up, that way they can see the product at time of purchase so they
    can't get burned. Gosh, how are people supposed to get ratings with people
    like you refusing to deal with them?

    Because you are ASKING TOO MUCH!
    If you did your homework you will see much cheaper examples of the
    articles you are selling.you should at least do your homework first.
    I have bought many lenses and other photographic paraphernalia off ebay
    and much cheaper for similar and/or better equipment than you.
    Being a newb to ebay research what you are selling and stop thinking
    that you can gouge buyers.

    OP has shown a good gesture by offering a pick up. So fraud possibility ==
    nope.
    For me that's more than enough than dealing with a 'rated' seller that
    refuses to acknowledge he is selling a semi-faulty item.

    But I wonder ... why you are selling 'used once' items ? You have Canon and
    Nikon ... what brand are you moving to ?

    Well all items are getting bids on them, secondly they are all in immaculate
    condition.

    But then no matter what people are selling some people always think they
    know better..

    Oh, and bought the Nikon gear originally because have Nikon film cameras and
    lenses, but decided to digital (in that price range) to move to Canon, now
    decided to step up a level of camera gear, at which prefer Nikon D200.
    (BTW: Work in a camera store)

    You should have realised it standard newsgroup practice on ANY
    newsgroup to shoot people down when they are selling things wanted by
    the complainant who is hoping you will fall for his whinge and drop
    the price.

  11. You should have realised it standard newsgroup practice on ANY
    I'm sorry

    I should have made more speeling (sic) mistakes for people to flame me for,
    and more top posting, and constantly replying to the root message of the
    thread, cross posting and binary files in this non-binary group.

    Then we could have a Canon v. Nikon discussion.

    and then David Z could post some stupid comment about Honda CRVs

    Fred drbbled:
    Or do as you please and ignore idiots incapable of graping the simple
    fact that its impossible to 'gouge' bidders at an auction, since they
    determine the price they're willing to pay.

    It goes like this Kane...
    When you buy something it always seems to cost more than someone else
    paid for it.
    When you come to sell something, it is always worth less than you
    thought possible.
    When you list it on EBay, you discover there are more people like you,
    willing to pay a decent price for decent gear than there are people
    trying to manipulate you into lowering your selling price.

    One of the really good things about EBay is that provided you are honest
    (0 feedback is OK if you demonstrate honesty) You discover the wankers
    who tackle you here about your "totally unrealistic price" are the ones
    who matter the least in this world.

    Finally... When you do eventually sell it, there is always someone who
    chimes in with: "I'd have paid that for it if I'd know how cheap you
    were willing to go"!

    When I sold my 10D for $2100 (no lens but a pro kit included) a week
    before the 20Ds were released, wankers in this very group accused me of
    somehow "ripping off" the person who, by his own decision, bid that much
    for it.

    IMO no Usenet junkie ever buys anything from another Usenet junkie.
    Stick with EBay for your sales mate and leave the wankers to get their
    rocks off with absurd remarks here. This is the Disney channel of Usenet!

    Clap clap clap.


    All I can say is THIS little black duck has bought similar items on ebay
    for cheaper.
    A mate of mine bought his 30D with the lens for just under 2000 brand
    new from a local seller.
    He posts in here occasionally so do a google and find out more
    I tell you once again that what you are selling is overpriced and anyone
    who is bidding to buy your stuff is being taken for a ride or is of
    little knowledge.
    It doesn't hurt to look at prices on ebay does it?
    If people are stupid enough to pay premium prices for products that are
    second hand then good luck to the original poster but It doesn't stop me
    from pointing out that people should research first before shelling out.

    That's the beauty of E-bay, if it's electronic and reasonably new people pay
    stupid prices. It's market driven. I say good on him for being able to get
    the price. It's not like I would buy it, but hey, I'm not buying, so who
    cares!

    If you can get it cheaper, then go out and buy it ..

    And that just about sums it up. The concept someone is being ripped off
    when it is their own fingers doing the walking is where "Fred" gets it
    wrong.
