    Never did a trade before. I may possibly do one. How do you trade without getting screwed?

    If you were to trade sex for photos it would be hard not to get screwed :)

    Trades are really no different than buying/selling using money.

    Well, money is just numbers these days... So if you send it the right way, there are ways to get it back if you get screwed. Getting a lens back is a different story....

    Yeah, what 480 said. Try to find someone who you both will ship to and when both arrive, they will ship the items to the designated person.

    That creates the expense of shipping four times..... it can be done with three.
