Re: Panasonic G VARIO 12-32mm f3.5-5.6 ASPH Mega O.I.S Lens, Black.

Can we be clear here, I know nothing of or harbour any ill will towards the OP.
I remembered being part of the original thread where this lens was discussed after being purchased.
Therefore I was surprised to see the same lens being offered for sale as BNIB.

This type of classifieds forum has no legal protection and relies solely on good faith.
In this instance the description was oviously inaccurate and that is the point I objected to.

It matters not what others consider constitutes new, it's not a term that can be misconstrued.
This lens cannot be bought new from a shop, used forever how long then sold as new again.

Why this debate continues I have no idea, I complained, it was upheld and the advert changed so end of.

As long as you are happy with your lens which wasn't purchased from a forum member and therefore the purchase is totally irrelevant to the current point in question, thats fine Otto. I'm very pleased for you and wish you many happy hours using the lens

Please stop the sniping, Other members are just as entitled as you to comment on this forum. If you don't think their posts are relevant just ignore them, there is no excuse for being confrontational. Winter may nearly be over, but there is still plenty of thin ice on which to skate.


In general, could everyone try to be a bit more civil towards others and in particular let this matter drop; in my view it has been resolved.

I didn't make any suggestion he wasn't entitled to comment but merely pointed out the comment had no relevance. Is that sniping ? If this censorship continues at this level, the forum is doomed. We are supposed to all be adults here who can stand the cut and thrust of a discussion not children being threatened by an over zealous teacher !!

Might I cordially suggest the term open box OB be used like many of the shops use. Not looking to get involved just offer a solution. Please delete if this post is inappropriate.

How about just Panasonic 12-32mm for sale

It's just a bog standard kit lens for sale, not a Faberge Egg

Another thread that is contaminated by pedantic comments and silly arguments.

I think this thread has run its course. Sorry Dave, I suggest you start again.
