    Both are in flawless condition and were rarely used.
    Looking for about 600 on the 17-40mm and about 300 on the 580ex
    will trade for a tokina fisheye or some bronica medium format gear

    *I am not a buyer*
    but your prices - firstly what currancy are you talking about - $ £ - also what nation are you selling from ( as a direct impact on postage costs ;))
    Also your price on the 580 - I take its the original and not the M2 edition - is only $16 less than a brand new 580M2 from amazon - and in the uk its £50 over the cost of a new one.
    Clearly second hand people will be expecting some slightly cheaper prices - otherwise they will simply get a new one ;)

    edit - price for the 17-40mm is also similarly in trouble a bit - check the prices selling on ebay and craig list for some idea of what the going rate is for second hand for both items :)

    Mearly trying to help was all - typically 2nd hand products don't sell for the same price as brand new. I am glad that you have managed to sell the lens at the price you asked for.

    But you still have not listed country or currancy that you are dealing in - remember this is an international forum so potental buyers need to know where you are dealing from

    Someone coming here to sell his wares with only 2 posts tirading someone who has been here for a long time with well over 3K posts isn't wise. What he says is the truth. I would recommend you take your stuff to sell elsewhere because frankly it looks as if you are only here to sell, not to contribute. Good day and good luck.

    No, he's not a smug smartass who flies off the handle at a simple suggestion. He is speaking to the common sense factor, obviously, common sense is something you lack. Its not a matter of correct or incorrect. The fact of the matter is you are here to take advantage of a large user base to sell your *USED* wares and will more than likely disapear like a fart in the wind after your stuff has been sold.

    Be gone.... and get it over with.

    Pointless me posting really, as I'm not buying :lol: ...BUT...

    Take a chill pill, Peter- Overread was just trying to be helpful & save some people time. It's all very well signing up to a forum to sell stuff, both sides win, but it's good to be courteous and polite along the way.. don't need to get so defensive :)

    Peter S, you're an ass. I hope nobody wants to buy your flash as nobody likes to deal with an ass.
