Re: Fs 90-250

If you put it up for sale on E-Bay you will have to declare a price and post an image. If you put it up for auction you're taking a big gamble.
Why not show the lens on here before making a move and put an asking price in the message.

Re: Fs 90-250

Chevvy, I'm only suggesting the same as the majority of members who have expressed an interest in the lens. Just a different form of words.
Who's going to buy blind?

Re: Fs 90-250

I was interested but he pm'd me saying "since I bought it two weeks ago its been gathering dust" ... then I was concerned about the lens and decided to rent as its an awful lot to buy "sight unseen"

Re: Fs 90-250

Final bump on this before it goes to eBay. One sold today for 2,709 +P&P, which is more than I have been asking. PM me if interested please.

Re: Fs 90-250

Its time to be blunt if you are getting frustrated at the lack of response.

Most politicians would at least publish a manifesto of some sort or another in order to entice votes.

Most of the members here will know what a 95-250 lens spec is. But they and I don't have any indication of the condition of the lens. You are asking someone to cough up c. 3k without any information at all.

Would you put this on ebay without any information or photos? Are you hoping to sell a lens like this without putting any effort in?

You can't be a serious seller.

I have bought some serious kit (inc. SHG lenses) here before, but I wouldn't touch this.

Re: Fs 90-250

Great hope it sells for you. I got the feeling most of the forum members were as nervous as a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs. With no description, no price, no photo. Best of luck with the sale.

Tom

Re: Fs 90-250

Three people enquired but only one was seriously interested. Lenses like that don't sell on a whim so adding a photo etc wasn't really necessary. I quoted 2,300 to those who were interested and the most recent sale on eBay was 2,700 so someone missed a bargain!

Re: Fs 90-250

No, its still got a like half a week to go.

I hope it sells well for you, Melaka.

But you are seriously limiting yourself by selling to UK only. I have put my 50-200 for sale on ebay (also a few days to go), and while I have been contacted by a fair number of interested people, not a single one was from the UK. I'd actually say you may have more luck if you posted it for sale on the German ebay, I have been mulling that one over myself.
