An untested MX needs a new home

All previous content has been removed.

Hope you accept my apology as I normally don't go this route but I have tried the Wanted section and I have no matching interest and hence the posting here. I will refrain from a repeat in the future.

Hin, I'm not trying to get into an argument with you, I enjoy reading your blog and your posts. I'm just making an observation.

It does seem somewhat poor etiquette to me that you are posting in the marketplace and then 'advertising' your wares in other sub forums.
Please don't take offence.

I have an MX for sale in Marketplace that I currently list as $45.00. The lens come with a Sigma UC 28-70mm f/3.5-4.5 zoom with 'A' aperture. If you are looking to try one, please consider this sale thread:

Please refrain from making posts such as these in the future, a listing in the Marketplace, followed by a search of the "Wanted Items" section should provide your thread with a sufficient number of readers.

I too have been tempted to post a "pointer" to my own classified ads when no one else did.

It's understandable. Once an ad goes below the middle of the first page it's not likely to be viewed.
I have watched some very good deals on desirable gear disappear this way.

In another photo forum I read some add a link to their current classified ads in their signature.

I have removed the content in original posting and I hope you all accept my apology. I made mistake in posting marketplace related information here for self interest.

And Chris, Adam and Damn Brit, thank you for your understanding and comments.

Adam was kind enough to copy the contested link in his quote of yours... so there is no problem in deleting your original post
