    I think you'd be better off posting photos of the equipment, along with a paper saying your username.

    Not being cheeky, just your a new member registered today.

      Why can't sellers just put prices to the kit they are selling. Nothing bugs me more than sellers offering goods for sale with no prices. If you want bidders then go direct to ebay.

      This a forum - so let's have some openess here.


      This is not the first time my comment has been echoed - so when are sellers going to wise up.

        Its happening a lot recently and i, personally, don't think that it fits with the spirit of the site.

        I presume after the OP has sold their gear we will not see them again as they will not be using E-system stuff

            Gotta agree with this as well.

            I'm also a member of TPf and AVforums, where sellers must post up a price and all trading to be done on the thread (in case of problems and for transparency), and it seems to work well.

            In fact due to the itrader system at AVForums, i had no problems sending an iPhone over to a well established member and accepting payment after receipt (due to my lack of trader rating)

            Maybe its time to review the for sale 'rule ans regulations' before the site gets a name for being a dumping ground where soon-to-be ex-e-group members can sign up just to get rid of their gear??

                  What I, and i presume the other posters are aluding to is that there an increasing number of new members who only sign up to sell stuff. The never even post in the welcome section, and once the sale is completed they dissapear from the site for good, thats all.

                    As to why you are selli9ng kit does not interst me in the least. If you can now state the price you expect to receive - as a complete set or broken down into individual pieces why didn't you do it in your first post.

                    I have no doubt that your intention was reputable - but start to see it from others point of view.

                    I was extremely interested in what you had to offer - but i am afraid it begins to smell of 'caveat emptor' to me.

                    I for one will not be making any offer on this kit.

                    If other members of the forum are offended by my stance then I apologise to them unreservedly.

                    'Best offers' will result in no offers from me.

                      In fairness I suspect this is someone I derected here earlier tonight from another forum where he asked where to sell Oly gear in the UK....so that much is from me

                      However, there are clear 'rules' here and I understood that involved both images and prices - there has been an increasing number of people (new and old) asking for offers recently and I agree with those here, and before, who consider this an abuse of the facilities. I say this as someone who has never made an offer on any gear for sale here either - I either meet the asking price or say quiet hoping the price might drop!
                      E, Pen and OM-D bodies
                      43 m43 and legacy glass
                      loads of flashes and accessories from all the systems

                        Good evening,

                        Since I've stated a bundle price in a reply I do not understand the tone of a lot of replies. I came here to sell some genuine equipment that people can view for themselves/try out etc when they buy.

                        I did not post a photo since this is an olympus forum and sort of guessed most people would know the equipment.

                        Anyway, I don't want to get into some sort of stupid slanging match as really life is far too short. Thanks to the person the recommended the site to me, there sincerity is appreciated. Obviously I'll have to sell the gear to a dealer.

                        Unlike others, I wish you all well and I hope you all enjoy your gear.
