Most of us reading in this section will have bought and sold cameras on the internet auction sites, and have read some dubious equipment descriptions. Some people will tell you anything to get a sale, and it amazes me how the have the nerve to do it, quite frankly. I always want to point out every little flaw in fear of getting flamed by the purchaser if it turns out to be not as described. My favourites to avoid are: ‘I’m selling this for a friend’ (it’s broken) ‘No battery to test it’ (it’s broken) ‘I see no reason why it shouldn’t work’ (it’s broken), and ‘It worked the last time it was used’ (fill in for yourself!) My own personal favourite though, is ‘ scratches on lens that won’t affect image quality’. Well they might not affect the image quality that you’d notice, but they will affect image quality. If one scratch won’t affect image quality, neither will one hundred. So my question is, what drives you round the twist?
