    I was due for a bone head move

    I bid on a camera. I did my research, I was somewhat impressed. I bid until I hit the reserve price. Thinking the combo was worth it. I was so "focused" on the picture with lens that i didn't read the Q&A. Yep, the lens is crap.
    I wrote the seller and told him I messed up...but for him/her to really enjoy the money(screw over).

    new seller, low start price, high reserve, picture of camera with lens. only is Q&A does he/she say body only and lens is faulty.

    I think I'm cured of my CBA.

    Been there, done that. G.A.S. attacks can certainly render one bereft of objective logic.
    Thank you.

    Well, shame on the seller for not stating the condition clearly in the item description and for posting a misleading photo.

    Sorry to hear this, I certainly feel your pain. I've been taken a couple times myself. Is the body functional? Can you find another lens? Hopefully, you can salvage the situation and get a functional kit out of the whole mess...
