Bought an A7R with probably a scratched sensor
1

Hi,

I just did the most stupid mistake, allowing my son to bid on an A7R on eBay I had on the watchlist. Well, he did bid on the wrong camera, and paid 640gbp for a camera with what seems to be a scratched sensor or sensor filter.

I did contact the seller explaining, but with the growing number of people bidding and not paying I don't think he is willing to reject my payment. I even offered GBP50 to compensate for my mistake, but had no reply.

The only thing the seller said was that he had to many issues with incorrect buyers and would report it to eBay. Although so far I haven't done anything wrong, I just explained my situation and tried to do an agreement.

How much does it cost to change the sensor filter? Hopefully it doesn't affect the sensor itself, as he said he took the camera after the clumsy cleaning and did not notice any effect on the photos.

Thanks
