    Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM ( Like New)

    guy said he would sell it for 500, seems like a steal for 3 shoots, but im afraid something is wrong with it, i dont know why he would want to sell it after 3 shoots, he has a picture of the suede cover and box, but no pictures of the lens itself. i also find it alittle odd that he "lost" the warranty card. could this lens possibly refurbished? if it wasnt 3 shoots old i would probably just wait for another used one to pop up.

    Craigs list is full of thiefs and scammers. If you can't go see and test the item in person I would skip it. There is absolutely no protections what so ever on craigs list scams. And even though ebay says they do, they have no real muscle, even through paypal you can be scammed in the end!

    Conventional wisdom states: If it seems too good to be true, it probably is.
