Gene...I watched this lens get sold on ebay at the end of October item 22016293828. Did the buyer not want it?

No. Buyer wanted it. But he couldn't follow the payment terms.

The problem was that he couldn't follow my payment terms. I specifically stated that I do not take credit card payments. The Russian buyer did not understand that and sent me a credit card payment and I rejected it.

I then told him that I will take credit cards if he paid using Google Checkout. He either didn't understand or didn't know how to use it. Also, there were some things he wanted to do with the shipping that made the matter complicated, i.e., for customs purpose, he wanted it to be marked as a low value, but then wanted it insured for a larger amount ... which I'm not sure whether the USPS would've allowed.

Anyhow, so we decided to cancel the transaction. Same problem with the second buyer ... payment terms issue. People just don't read. Perhaps I should post a picture for the payment term.

Sorry to hear that.... that is a fine lens. If I was not so top heavy with wide angles I would sure like to own it. I can see it has been taken care with TLC...good luck...

Thank you. But no need to be sorry. I'm actually quite happy that the transaction didn't work out.

If you've been following the prices of FA 20s on E-Bay, I'm sure you know. Lesser quality lenses (and without the filter) have been selling for more. I think my lens didn't get as a high price because the photos weren't showing up on the E-Bay listing. What was happening was that there were so much traffic that I was exceeding the bandwidth allowed by the server from where the photos were posted. So, during the last few hours of bidding (actually during the last day or so), the photos of the lens weren't showing up on the listing. :-( I'm sure I lost some enthusiastic bidders because of that.

Bottom line, I was a bit disappointed by the final price. But, fortunately, the buyers backed out b/c they didn't read the payment terms ... one guy was brand new on E-bay and the other guy didn't speak english quite that well .... it was rather painful trying to communicate with him. So, I'm happy that it didn't work out.
