#7. "RE: Interest in F-era gear on nikonians?" In response to In response to 6 Sat 07-Jul-12 02:13 AM by ZoneV
Thanks for the encouragement, everyone.
It is possible that approx six weeks from now, I might have some Nikon F-era equipment to list for sale on this site. If and when that happens, I'll post another reply to this thread letting everyone know.
In the meantime, feel free to keep replying to this topic if you have anything to add.
And as a buyer, would you rather see bodies that have been recently serviced and costing $75 more, or would you rather it be listed as-is with light seals that are iffy and no CLA? Personally, when I bought my F3, the light seals were pretty shot, but it never affected anything; the camera is so well sealed. I would want to recoup my own investement in the kit by selling most of the items. I pretty much have enough Nikon gear already. But personally I'm willing to pay a good premium for something that has been cleaned and checked recently. I'm actually planning to send the F2 that I would be keeping to Sover Wong for this reason.
An undeniable paradox: To think that there is any such thing as an absolute rule is at worst naïve, and at best, shortsighted. There is no such thing as an always-true, all context- or situation-salient, absolute rule that always holds true…including this one!
