Upload & Sell: Off
Helen: I addressed the "resale" part in the post of above yours. In the case my "like new" lens and complimentary accessories there was nothing to clean, or really even evaluate except to put it on a MFT body and see if it works. I know that storing an upright lens doesn't take up much space, and shipping cost about $10, and I agreed to the offer so there was no return postage. I didn't buy from Adorama so a warranty didn't factor into the equation. Since the Olympus 50mm f2 Macro is one of a kind, no other macro of reasonable size for MFT, it's really doubtful that the market will drop, but prices always rise. Only reselling the lens again on eBay, something that might take place if you can't sell it from your store, would lower the offer. It seems that I am lumped in with all the other customers who need the cleaning, triple inspection, etc. thus a low offer.
You guys didn't treat me unfairly. I accepted the offer so it's fine.
BTW: It nice that you help customers, but I never felt FM was the place to do it. My comments were intended as illustrations only of how resale works from my perspective. Thanks..... Borderlight.
