I Buy and Sell here a lot along with FM. It never ceases to amaze me how little attempt people make to photograph their gear for sale! Aren't you supposed to be photographers?
I agree. When I sell, I try to take half decent photos of the equipment for sale. I use a broad enough depth of field so as much of it is in focus as possible. I want buyers to see the true condition of the item. I don't shoot things at f/1.2 and pretend I am taking a portrait.
In addition to taking pictures of the item, I also take photos of the item being boxed up, printed out reciepts off USPS.com or pictures of reciepts from the Post Office, all to reassure the buyer that I not only shipped it, but shipped it securely. I've sold everything here from a EF 400mm f/2.8 IS L USM to a 58mm UV filter. I feel that if a buyer has just spent $8,000 or $15 with someone who is basically a total stranger, it's part of my duty as an honest seller to let them know.
