Suspicious M8 + 35 Lux ad

Recommended Posts

Is it just me, or does this seem like a strange Craigslist listing?

Maybe my sense of used market prices is off, but this seems really aggressive for the body + lens.  That, and the lens cover is on upside down in each of the pictures.  Also, what is the second digital screen referenced to have a glass protector?

It may be dodgy, for example two pictures of the front of the lens show different serial number. Second some pictures are on white background and others on wooden table, indicates different sources from which these were harvested.

So, assuming it is genuine it is surprising for someone who prides to be a working photographer to not be able to provide a consistent set of pictures to help him sell the camera.

I would ask for more pictures, with the screen turn on so you can see if there are some coffee stains, etc. I agree, for a professional photographer that is a pretty lame set of images.

Different lenses, different cameras, clearly a scam. Just contact them and ask if you can call around to check the camera and lens out, see what they say.
