How about having a forum where we can trade secondhand equipment ?
I am after a Canon 100mm f/2.0 USM lens but can't afford the 500+ price tag new. Surely someone on here must have one they don't want..?

Hi, thanks for your suggestion. We have added a temporary forum for secondhand equipment, and aim to add a dedicated classifieds section in the future.

Seems like a very timely suggestion. So many are shifting their kit preferences around with so many manufacturers discontinuing lines or models while adopting entirely new type cameras. Lots are unloading old kit. Your addition may draw a lot of attention for those wishing to take advantage of this activity. Are you going to institute a quality or condition scale enforced on sellers so buyers can rely on honest sale representations? I have used several sites in the past which enforced a quality and condition scale so buyers could buy with confidence. Should several sales turn out badly the entire site may suffer and all the buyers and sellers who are honest may suffer as well. Good luck with your plans.

I've noticed the thread you've re-opened is quite old (2001), since then a 'Classified Ads' forum has been added. You can find it HERE. Smile
