It does seems odd, and the pictures look somewhat cluttered!

Could be legit, but...

- Really scruffy pics with debris around the gear
- One-liner description riddled with spelling and grammar errors
- Pay on collection only

It's not even a particularly good price. Sounds fishy IMHO.

I wouldn't go anywhere near it. Very dubious.

Might be legit - someone who needs the money in a hurry and collection is at least less likely to be a rip off.
I would still turn up with a couple of burly mates along with my 2600 in cash though!

30-odd transactions, and only ONE a sale, for 300 - and for which the vendor was given Negative feedback ? No way would I consider buying off this seller !

And has the kit been cared for appropriately ? Doesn't look like it, given the junk lying around and the dust on the kit and scrapes on the boxes after such a short time. I'd advise at least sending a private message to ask for the shutter count before even considering forking out that amount of money.

Urgh, the feedback they leave for others doesn't seem too cooperative when things go wrong, either.

Think I spotted what might be an Aldi job application it talks about the benefits of Aldi and as they don't reward loyalty can't see what else it could be.
Not that there is anything wrong with Aldi.

Re price well over priced as Aperture advertised/sold 1 for 1450 recently with no lens.
That would leave spare cash to buy the lens brand new and have an extra 50 for the sky rocket.


Based on the price alone don't actually see why I looked further into the listing looking at pics. Ah well can't be bothered deleting it now. Plus it's good banter.

Not sure I'd judge the seller so much

On the face of it: new prices:

Camera, 1850
Lens, 1050
Grip, 200

Sounds like about 3100 new so he's taking a bath on 500 for owning something for a week.

If he'd take 2 grand I'd think about making the long drive....

Mal.

If you are selling a camera like this as a photographer some thought would go into the backdrop and composition of the photo. it just doesn't represent a passionate photographer. Maybe someone thought about taking up photography and changed their mind but as it stands quite rightly raises suspicion based on the available information rather than judgement.
