Idiot Lowballer on Craigslist
Feb 3, 2010

So I recently posted a Sigma 30mm f/1.4 on CL for $400... exactly what I bought it for. It's a great little lens, but I decided to move up to full frame and use my Canon 50mm f/1.4.

I got an email from "Vic":

"I dont like to lowball people and i know this is a great a college student and looking for a lens..if you decide to sell this for 200 cash..plz let me know.. btw i live in niles too easy pick up"

I replied with:

"Well today it's just your luck, within the last hour the value of the lens magically dropped by half. I suppose you'll wish to reduce your offer to $100 just in case it drops more.

I'm in college too, working my way through a very expensive education..."

He could barely contain himself!:

"hey man! dude are you saying $100 for the sigma? theres nothing wrong with it right? your in niles.I can pick this up tonight or tomorrow morning..plz txt me (# removed) i want your lens"
