Is it wrong to ask questions and than decide not to buy?

You may not like bargaining, but you may have no choice but to accept an offer. A lot of times, all you'll get are offers. I'm resigned to consider all offers--but once they start asking for 5-10% off the asking price, that enters low-ball territory. There is an etiquette to bargaining, that's for sure.

I got an offer of 900 dollars on a brand new unopened 14-24mm when my listing price was 1500. That REALLY pissed me off.

REASONABLE offers :D

I'd be pissed off too. Those ones I ignore. You can't even work with an offer like that. Those types tend to be the worst to work with in the long run. If they say, hey, $1350, at least you can try to go somewhere with that.

Perhaps it was because your initial question had nothing to do about price, but whether it was v2 or not. Seems to me that if the price was a factor, that would have been your first question.

I'd be annoyed too if I were the seller.

I agree with these two. Generally, if I'm interested in buying an item and its overpriced I will just make an offer.

If my offer isn't accepted then I don't badger them about their price as I don't expect someone to change it for me unless that's what they want to do.
