Can anyone shed some light on eBay seller 1080photography? Looks like they have some great used items but I haven't heard good or bad about them before.

Overpriced. You're better off bidding tbh. If you don't mind their price, their cutomer service is pretty good. I bought a camera from them before, no charger was included but they quickly shipped the charger overnight.

I'll second the overpriced part. I also don't know how they can classify a lens that has a dent and hazy glass as one that's in great condition.

My sister, the professional baker and cake decorator once told me that my camera takes great pics. My reply was that I thought her oven baked great cakes.:lol:

I've purchased a couple items from them, both as auction formats. Fantastic customer service in both experiences for me.

Maybe I might be better off passing on them then... :shock:

Also, the camera I bought was supposed to be LNIB, but of course that's not the case, lots of minor scratches. :confused:

They were selling a 70-200 2.8 IS II that looked really nice, but after hearing this I'd be concerned that it wouldn't be in the excellent shape they say it's in.

I've bought quite a bit of stuff from them and one thing I can say is that the posted prices are pretty far off from how far they're wiling to negotiate.

I bought 1 lens from them, it was listed as excellent condition and looked brand new when I got.

As mentioned most of their stuff is priced a bit high.

I bought a 24-70 from them last year. Def overpaid by 150-200. But lens was exactly as described.

I went ahead and bought the 70-200. It was listed at $2299, I offered $1900 and we settled on $1999.

I'll post an update when it arrives. Hopefully it's as good as they've described it to be.

Bought from him multiple times. The more you buy, the better the deal. I get everything from him in two days via FedEx. (Cleveland, Oh to Huntington, WV) Trying to remember what I've bought from him, but I know at LEAST I got:

5D Mark II
5D Mark III
600EX-RT

All came in the exact shape he described, and his images show every imperfection. Great guy to deal with.
