You want a honest reply to your mere question, then troll the replies....
David's threads always seem to be exercises in mental masturbation posing as deep intellectual thought with a dose of persecution complex thrown in.
David Liga's comments remind me of a word and an adage.
God gave us two ears and one tongue so that we might listen more and speak less.
A buyer may be interested in appearance or functionality or both. The seller should fully disclose both aspects.
i buy with paypal often because all paypal'd purchases offer a 45day money back guarantee.
and it seems that what someone ( person or store ) sells something that isn't really what it seems
it is good to have bilk-pal to lean on.
thankfully i don't have plans on buying any more "stuff"
I do appreciate your heartfelt comments. All. And when you disagree with me I learn. I might end up not agreeing but I learn and I thank you. It's just that some things seem different to me, conceptually, and I cannot refute them solely because a generic perception gets in the way.
It sounds crazy, that analysis, but I really mean that, to me, there is a big difference between this 'perception' thing and the reality. I fully respect that some (most) want the full picture even though it might not affect anything that they intend to do with the equipment, but I also respect the opposite argument. - David Lyga
The very fact that you have asked the questions you have; means that I would never buy anything from you. Someone who appears to not be a trained technician; poking around in the innards of a camera or lens is not a good omen. I have done a large number of modifications to photographic equipment for various reasons but when I do that, the item (as far as I am concerned) cannot have the integrity to allow it to be used by anyone else as the expectations may not be met. I also know what I am doing and have the ability and equipment to measure resolution etc. in microns. I recently was stung by a subscriber on a purchase and for personal reasons I was not able to use the Paypal 45 day policy. The seller lied about the condition of the item and has no integrity. I am pondering how to react to the situation.
David for the record, in reply to your earlier post.... If I may be so bold, Jon Goodman would disclose that the camera came from a haunted house, that the fortuneteller had foretold bad luck, and that he had left some collectible DNA samples inside.
He would then weave it all into a really entertaining story, and the equipment would sell before sundown. :wink:
He is the only person I have ever known, to use a broken BBQ to sell light seals... :grin:

Thus, Jon Goodman is a person of consummate integrity (and a good man). I guess I am not. - David Lyga
