Why don't you put it up for sale in the Forum Marketplace?

As Volley said, here is best. Become a site supporter for a whole lot less than what flea bay takes as a percentage, and here you know you have the target audience. Totally a common sense decision.

It is 20 buck versus 10%. Do the math.

You can certainly point people to your eBay account so they can see you have a good rep.

All this drama over small commissions on Ebay!
"Don't sweat the small stuff"
Ebay works brilliantly
Pentax Forums are largely CONUS anyway

You can link to your rep on those sites when you list an item. So why make excuses not to list here if you really want to sell? Or do you deep down, want to keep the lens?

I have not been able to work for a bit so something has to give. The 600 is like hauling a whale's manhood and is also low hanging fruit to solve my liquidity issues.


Ha I also have a Tamron Adaptall 300mm f2.8 with Kung Fu grip but someone just posted one for sale for $375 which is a fantastic price if you are a buyer! Not selling mine now if that is where the market is.

Ok I'll take the plunge. You got me. Since I want to keep my K-3 Tamron Kung Fu 300mm and a few others...

I also have a 645D and just sold a 645 local that are prospective sells. Another family member got the 645Z but I believe that is going to be loved.

This is all stuff inherited from my Pentaxian family member. No matter how many times he had a Canon he always Never left Pentax. and I got Hammy downs still shoot a *istD

Ya, if I could only get back the time I wasted clicking on CONUS listings.. The market place should be divided into regional sellers, and a separate marketplace for people willing to ship world wide.

C'mon Norm! Some of us are willing to ship to Aus and other places! But now the USPS has made the customs forms more detailed so there is a chance I may change my tune.

So you would post in the International market place. There would be nothing to stop CONUS users from posting there as long as they would ship to other countries. Maybe there could be a filter so we could eliminate people who won't ship to our country.
