Wow, I have been on ebay for the passed 3 days looking for a extra body and I loose every time..its like these people have ninja fast speed fingers. I don't have a smart phone so thats why I guess.

Decide what your absolute maximum is, and bid it to start with. If you get outbid, then fine, its going to sell for more than you were willing to pay anyway.

I tend to buy new as for a few dollars more I get factory warranty. People shake out their old asking close to new. I see no problem with that if they can get the price then why not. I just don't go for that bait.

I still have (but rarely use) a 20D. It's a shame they're worth so little these days.

I gave my 20D to my Goddaughter a couple years ago. She was 12 at the time. . .since then she's won so many photography competitions, I've lost count. It's more in the eye and mind than it is the equipment. I make up for my envy by buying more expensive equipment. :o

Don't worry... I use ebay a lot. In fact, I'm up several thousand $$$ on buying old lenses on craigslist and then selling them on ebay. There's nothing wrong with using ebay.

Yeah, I added the credit card option and when I went to checkout it says now it took it from my bank account even though it wouldn't work before. Maybe because they Have my CC as collateral?

PayPal sucks sometimes. Did the same to me when I changed credit card after a few transaction! Cause me a lot of pain and cost! Why can't they forewarn before they pull such stunts!
