UPDATE: For Sale items can be found in the top menu. I have added four Leica M lenses and a MP (film). More lenses to come.
Hello everyone, I have quite a bit of personal camera equipment I’ve been thinking of putting up for sale on eBay and various forums (simply because I am not using it). I then thought that it would make more sense to put them up for sale here instead. This is something I would like to do on an ongoing basis, because it provides benefits for me and for buyers:
Benefits for You
- All equipment will be as accurately described as possible. All will have been used by me and will function perfectly. If not, this will be clearly stated. I have 100% positive feedback on eBay and will treat any sale here on TPF with even greater care.
- Superb lens performance: I will only list lenses for sale that are optically spot on. That means all will have been checked though test shoots to ensure they are well centred, focusing properly and performing spot on. Many of you will know what a royal pain in the backside it can be to find well centred lenses, because so many *brand new* lenses have soft sides, corners, or are just plain lemons. Unlike eBay (or some camera stores), this will not be a dumping ground for bad lenses. This will be a ‘for sale’ platform for my personal equipment which I know to be performing extremely well and which became part of my own kit bag. Some were bought with the best of intentions and barely used at all. Others will have had more use. However, all will be very good optics and their condition will be accurately described.
- I will aim in all cases to list what I believe to be ‘fair market value’ or just below. While you won’t come away with ‘an absolute steal’ you won’t end up staring at soft corners, or buy a camera with a glitch, warped mount, or hidden gremlin either!
Benefits for Me
- No eBay fees and hassle.
- Equipment goes to a good home!
So there ya go! I am just floating this now as a ‘heads up’ and will publish a very quick post whenever items are listed. I will then file them under the top menu under ‘For Sale’ so everything currently available can be found easily.
I’ll most likely be starting with Leica-M equipment and following up with some amazing Large Format equipment, including some hard to find items.
