Also, people I see posting equipment on that site a typically forum members of Fourthirds.com as well as DPReview.com who are required to post photos of the equipment they are offering for sale.
It's nothing like Craig's List, where there's a preponderance of scam artists.
Personally, given a choice, I'll buy from someone who is local and I can see the item I want to buy. That's why I thought the suggestion made some sense.
It's clear that I didn't make myself clear.
shouldn't be a problem here - the company i'd buy it through, as well as the details i gave earlier, give a 12 month guarantee.
all useful stuff tho...this new hobby could be quite expensive
