Looking at buying a new Sony SEL1670Z on eBay - recommended?
5 months ago

I'm looking at buying a Sony SEL1670Z 16-70mm lens on eBay (one of the ones that are indicated as brand-new and unopened.) I'm wondering how risky this would be given the chance of getting a bad copy and having to try returning it. I'm wondering if anyone else with experience buying expensive lenses like Zeiss through eBay could give me insight on this. I wanted to go through eBay and not Amazon because I would like to use PayPal BillMeLater which Amazon doesn't accept. I plan to sell my kit lens (SEL1650z) once I buy the Zeiss as I don't foresee needing a compact lens in the future.
