Hi
I see from e-bay that you sell tons of Olympus camera stuff. More than a normal person with a hobby of photography would even buy. Are you a trader?

...and who are you to judge what is normal for a person to buy/sell to differentiate between a hobby and a trader?! What is normal to one person may not necessarily be the case for another...to call him out is a bit off IMO.

I, like most people, post across a lot of photography forums (and others, due to my breadth of hobbies) - I can vouch for Levster from the MU-43 forum...you can see from his posts on that forum that he switches between systems, as many also do. If you think he flips a lot, make sure you never become an Audiophile, get into AV or have an interest in watches! Those are hobbies that definitely keep the logistical firms of this country in business.

Levster, good luck with the sale...if it had been a silver body I'd have snapped it up. The price is good enough to have made me consider purchasing it.

I think I'm going to treat this as a friendly intervention! If I had enough cash for all the lenses I wouldn't switch so much, damn these forums for tempting me to want to try them all (admittedly sometimes more than once!).

I don't want to derail your thread, it has had plenty of that already but...I had a similar issue on another forum where someone made a comment to the mods that I was selling items purchased elsewhere and therefore must be a dealer. Not the case at all in mine, or I suspect your case, merely buying far too much kit on impulse as is my problem, and then re selling to get funds for more impulse purchases! In my case also losing far too much money in the process. I have lost me classified rights there due to a false accusation!!
We are not all perfect and I have a massive amount of sales on various sites / forums for photographic equipment but it doesn't make me a trader, an idiot maybe but that's not against the rules as far as I'm aware.
Good luck with your sale and let's hope all future posts here are from interested buyers.

Re: Olympus E-M5 Mark ii Camera (Black)

I can assure you that this hobby only loses me money! I'm more active over on the mu43 forums, where I post regularly. I'm still getting my head around this forum and admit that I probably shouldn't post listings until I'd established myself here. I'm only guilty of suffering serious GAS.

I've bought from Levster before (a monitor) and I can assure you all that he's quite reputable.

Re: Olympus E-M5 Mark ii Camera (Black)

I'm am not a trader. How hard is it to understand that I like trying different bits of kit? I'll be the first to admit that I switch gear far too often, but that's my choice, and I will not be chastised and made out to be a liar by you.

Re: Olympus E-M5 Mark ii Camera (Black)

I was not making you out to be a liar. You included, in your listing, a reference as Ebay. Looking that up I see at least 9 pages of feedback, mostly, but not all I admit, for Olympus and Panasonic camera gear.
http://feedback.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayIS...7010235&page=1

To me this is not as you say a case of"How hard is it to understand that I like trying different bits of kit?"

I try different bits of kit too and like to buy and sell. I would prefer not to sell on Ebay and pay their high fees.

We need to police our own forum here, it's for our benefit and if we abuse it we lose it.

I'm sorry if I offended you. I won't be buying from you but others may do. It's a free country. I did not call you "a liar".
I have nothing further to say on the matter. But I will not apologise for having an opinion.

I prefer not to sell on eBay too, hence this listing! As I said, I'd be the first to admit that I switch gear too often and I should have posted more "content" before using the Buy and sell area here.

Looks like Levster has now sold it (judging by the opening post).
