Happening more and more.

This is a photography forum. Why no "photos" of stuff in the classifieds?

Hahah..maybe they don't know how to take photos??? :) Worst case is that they are selling photography gear with horrible looking photos. I saw plenty of them on Ebay though.

The thing that bugs me the most about items for sale in the classified here are all the lenses (and other items) that have dust on them. Umm.. I won't buy a dusty lens from someone who claims to be into photography. If that's what you think is presentable, it's not.

Why would you sell one that way? I guess you're not into photography?

Photos: (really sorry about the dust)

QUOTED IMAGE



Anyone that has photographed products, especially items that are black, knows that it's nearly impossible to remove all dust and PP will take a while to make look the item appear perfect. When I look at items for sale I know that, and I know that I can detail the item when I receive it if I think that the dust affects the operation.

Dust doesn't scare me off. Some of the finishes are nearly impossible to get perfectly clean.

If a person only has one camera & he's selling it, & doesn't have a camera phone, how's he going to take images of it? ; )

The sellers were too ashamed of their dust.

What gets me is people who say they're gonna buy your item then pay up, don't mention it at all if you're not going to buy it.

I'm trying to parse this with commas
I think the sentence needs a "don't" and maybe delete a word or two
