I have bought quite a number of cameras and lenses from Ebay, all European sellers and all with at least 99.5% rating and willing to accept returns. The sellers all gave realistic descriptions except one. I had that one bad experience with a seller with a 99+% rating, who advertised a Canon F1 as in "great condition" and "fully functioning". It was only fit for spares. The return shipping I had to pay was fairly expensive. The guy then advertised it again as "mint" and at the bottom in small print he listed the three serious visible defects that I had listed, but ignored the fact that the galvanometer was bust. The guy then disappeared totally from the site!
