Re: Idiot Lowballer on Craigslist

The lens is only worth what some one is willing to pay for it. As of right now the best offer you have is $200 so that sounds like it is the going price.

I don't think the college guy was being rude, or trying to make you feel bad at all. He was up front with you. He said, I have $200 bucks, and am a student, so I can't get any more.

My personal rule for anything used is I won't pay more than 2/3 the cost of a brand new Item and thats if its in perfect condition. Otherwise 1/2 of new cost is as high as I will go. Anything more than 2/3 why even bother buying used, just get a new one.
