About a year ago I wanted the 300mm f2.8 and 500mm primes. I bought both on e-bay. No problems what so ever. I use them always. Even in the event of dispute. They offer money back. If fraudulent they offer money back. I just, feel safe shopping on e-bay. I spent 9500 us dollars in two weeks on used lenses and everything was as described.

So for me ok. I have heard bad strorys. But I cannot see the problem with e-bay protection on the items.
