Love the local ads from clueless sellers.

This guy is listing a 20D with a 18-55 non IS, 28-135 IS, and Tamron 75-300 for $1500!! :lol:

Anyone have the heart to tell him what it is really worth?

Actual I think it's worth much less than $1500. I think a good deal would be half that price. But that's just me.

That was kind of the point of the post. I thought the price was ridiculous

at first I was a little leary but...
I've gotten some pretty good deals on Craigslist

$ 80 for a mint 18-55 is, $ 40 for a 50 mm f/1.8 II ( new in box w/warranty )
$ 175.00 for a like new Tamron 28-200 AF/LD, and $ 35 for an 18-55 non is ( found the IS version shortly after this )


never enough gear

Saw this one on my local Craigslist. Talk about clueless.

One nice thing that I noticed in the ad is the calculator that identifies the age of the sellers account (In red font "Sellers Account is 1291 days old"

While we identify the join date, I think some people have a tendency to blur 07, 08, and 09. This might be a better way to identify the age of our members. Does anyone know how to float a suggestion to the Mods?

Nice Sale BTW!

Don't forget he's done quick search on Amazon and he came up with $2200 :)


I know more about gear than I know about photography :p

Got it, missed the sarcasm in there. Enough people around here trying to figure out what is a good deal and not.
