I sell things on ebay now and then. I take pains to practice full disclosure and any other seller on any auction site ought to also.

To me, it seems that the camera was misrepresented and you should intiate a complaint thru the auction site. But it might be nice to first contact the seller if possible and explain the issue. It is remotely possible that the seller did not really know the difference. No seller worth their salt would want a complaint arbitrated by the auction site.

If I saw a listing for a DP1s, and bought it but it turned out to be something different, I wouldn't like it. The down side is of course that you will have to send all the stuff back, which is something maybe you would rather not do. Maybe your best choice is to keep it.

It's completely up to you...

Tom, the man with all the ethics................

I would say 'Thank You' to someone that sent me a reply & a long detailed instructions on converting their camera too......wouldn't you ?

By the way, thanks for the reply! And I might know a little about what is ethical but carrying it out every day is a shaky proposition. Having sold 2-3 items on an auction site would make anyone an expert, so I must be an expert. Fortunately expertise is not a prerequisite for posting on this forum.

If you sent me long detailed instructions on converting my camera plese re-send them because I don't remember. It's nice to be getting older: the guilt about not remembering things is not so strong anymore.

Thank you.
