I once bought a Pentax K3 from Roberts being sold as faulty. There was no battery, no battery-charger, condition was mint, but described as "we cannot test it".

It turned out to be in perfect condition, low shuttercount. This was about 2 years ago and a steal (something like $100 or so plus shipping). I could even detect the previons owner,

a member here on the forum. I contacted him because I wondered if possibly it was a stolen camera but all was fine. I guess they must have lost the box with battery and charger

and didn't bother.

Thanks everyone for your input, I was able to find the lens from someone else for a very good deal so I never bought from Robert's.
But from what you guys have said if they have something else I want I'll buy it.
