| p.1 #11 · Potential for a good 50 f/1.0L deal ? |
Probably...picked up a T90, a 24 f2.8, 50 f1.8 and 80-200...all Canon, back in 92, the box was pretty ragged, closed with bent up mashed up flaps, had a tag on it 'camera stuff - $75 OBO'
I looked inside, noticed the T90 had the PC mod done to it, my two were originals, picked it up, nearly zero scuffs or dust. The 80-200 was in a case, badly scuffed up n worn, the lens was in perfect shape. Smiled, put everything away, took 4 twenty dollar bills out my pocket, the seller smiled said he'd get me change...nah don't worry 5 bucks isn't worth the effort
Ya never know what yer gonna find at estate sales...
You did good.
You know the fear many of us have........if we kick the bucket suddenly, on a short notice, that our surviving spouses might sell our lenses for what we told them we paid for them.
"Yes, my late husband Peter loved this 50 f/1.0 lens, and since he said he paid $1,200 for it, I could let you have it for $600, unless you think that's too much ?"
SoCal, land of fun n sun...and Beverly Hills, Bel Air n Hollywood...estate sales galore, I found that T90 not 20 miles away down south of me in Newport Beach, harbor folk got the buckroos...
