i'm generally against buying used electronics, especially so when it involves precision moving parts. but i see lots of used gear on the bay and cl which is tempting. i'm not comfortable buying something used on ebay so i'm considering craigslist where i can at least meet the buyer and check out the gear. when buying used, what are you looking for specifically? obviously i'll fire off a few shots, but other than hearing the shutter release is there anything y'all look for that might be a bad sign of something to steer clear of?
tangentially, how much of your gear do you buy used?
