Pro and Journalist selling equipment- run fast...
In reply to Al Giordano, 8 months ago

Whenever a seller claims to be a "pro" or "journalist" or sports photographer, who claims to have taken care of his equipment, I run away, as fast as I can. I don't care if they "take care of their equipment", their equipment are probably used more and taken more abused than a casual photographer's equipment. I'm a sports photographer. Do you want to buy my 400mm lens in mint condiditon? Just because it's clean looking does not mean the focusing motor has gone through a lot of miles.  And, every mechanical device has a certain useful life.  Certainly much more used than a 400mm lens from a casual BIF photographer.
