Re: Need info reg. Sony rx100 VI or VII

Thanks for the link to that site. Some interesting stuff on there.

As for places to buy, I have bought a RX100III used on a UK photography forum I am a member of, and that had the benefit of it being from another member. That site also makes it not easy for anyone just to join and sell stuff, so that gives some piece of mind that someone is not there just to sell some stuff. That worked out OK.

I bought a RX100V from eBay last year, and taking note of the quality of the ad, and the reputation of the seller should be the minimum to try and cover yourself as far as you can. And that worked out OK too.

An example of that is, I bought a RX100VII on eBay a couple of weeks ago, and in one of the pics the corner was scuffed, which I was fine with and bought it. When I received the camera, the bottom plate had come away slightly, which was not clear in the pictures, and so I decided to return it. The seller was great throughout the sale, answering questions beforehand, and keeping communication throughout. As he said, it takes a long time time to build a reputation, but no time to tarnish one. If people sell on eBay a bit, they normally want people to be happy in the deal.

I currently have a bid on another RX100VII that ends in a couple of days. I would say when it comes to something like eBay, set a price that you're will to pay, and stick to it. I won't be sitting there counting down waiting to up my bid if 'necessary', if someone bids more than my maximum bid, good luck to them, I'll look for the next one.

I considered buying off a couple of UK photography stores that also deal in used equipment, but their prices, even with part exchanging the RX100III, it still would have worked out more expensive that what I am prepared to pay on eBay, and I of course still have the RX100III to sell to recoup some money back.

Hope that is of some help.
