How would you feel about it if the situation was reversed? You sold some stuff, lost an ebay case, you're out the money, out the equipment because you moved, and now someone want's to send you an additional bill?

It would take everything I had not to hop in a plane and show up at your door to tell you in person what I thought......

I don't think the OP means to say they want to charge the repair back to the seller and keep the lens. I think they are meaning to say that they would fix it, sell the lens, send the money back to the seller (less the cost of fixing the lens). I believe that is the OP's question

Although he stated clearly what he's saying some of us can't understand.

He's asking to having fixed the lens(spend X), then sell his entire stuff (he got for $531 or whatever it was) (Receive Y) then pay him (Y-X).

My question to this forum is as follows: If I were to charge the cost of that repair back to the original Ebay seller, would that be fair? Obviously, I would NOT send in my 50D, but rather, his XSi. That way, he could not claim my 50D was at fault.

(Granted, that could easily mean that the 50D would remain incompatible with the lens, but at that rate, I would just accept my loss and sell it along with the XSi for whatever I could get.)

That last sentence tells me the intent is to charge the original seller, and, if the lens works on the 50D, keep it, if not, sell it. Maybe SimplyShane wasn't being clear, but that is how I construe that last part.

Even I think the same. If not then that's what he should be doing.

I read a post a few months ago


So you are asking us if in addition to getting the camera and lens for free due to a focusing issue if you should now send the seller the bill for fixing your free lens? Same lens you had listed here for sale yesterday for $250?

Are you deliberately trolling this forum?? Last week it was your shipping fiasco because you got your address wrong.

Shane. How about this. Deduct the cost of fixing the lens from the $531 you owe this guy and send him the rest.

totally agree with this.

to the OP, you said you felt guilty with all the Xsi-sigma fiasco because you got your money back and got free camera w/ lens. But now you want to send the seller repair bill 8 months later (or how many months nobody knows)??? seriously? unbelievable....

Another story to reinforce my practice of always buying new. It seems that a meaningful percentage of people involved in transactions for used equipment are out to rip each other off. Too much uncertainty and stress for my druthers.

I think most of you are misreading his message, although its a little confusing :)

he wants to send the lens to sigma to be repaired, deduct the say $100 repair cost off what he paid the guy initially, so lets say he paid originally for the camera / lens $500 he would then send the original seller back $400 and then sell off the camera / lens if he chose to

I think thats fair and that is what I would do

I hope so because if he wants to do all of that and then ask the guy to pay for the repair he has mental problems :)
