  1. At least for the lens if it is a Nikon. It just goes to show you that the
    old Nikkors, even DX lenses, hold their value.

    Shouldn't this really be titled "drop your lens in the ocean and throw
    away $700+"?

    That's a rip-off.
    Here (New Zealand) you could have bought a 4 month old D2xs, with
    70-200VR for only NZ$400 (=US$300 or so).

    The auction - with photos, is here:

    Excellent! Do you have any idea how this camera and lens ended up
    underwater for 3 months?

    Bizarre indeed. The only thing that eclipses that nonsense is VW 21
    and 23 window busses. I've seen rusted out shells go for $10,000.
    $10k for a shell and untold thousands more to bring one back,

    There was reference in the comments section of the auction indicating
    that the owner was taking a photo of a waterfall when the tripod fell
    over, and that the owner didn't bother trying to recover it, claimed
    insurance, and someone else picked it up later.

    What if you're not paying with a credit card?

    That's not paypal AFAIK, you can always use Western Union (no recourse).

    My camera bag was on the floor when my basement flooded, my insurance
    company covered me for all damage except the deductible which was $500, all
    my old lenses and cameras were given back to me, what to do with damaged
    equipment???? but of course, sell it on e-bay! I got more than the
    deductible for my old waterlogged lenses and camera and new equipment.

    Actually, Paypal's preferred method of funding is direct from your bank
    account. And I believe the confirmed address means that you've gone through
    the process of them making two small deposits in your bank account to verify
    related account info. In fact, they highly discourage people from using
    credit cards with Paypal.

    If you sign up with Paypal, you will have to give them either a credit or a
    debit card number, and they will give you a user name and a keyword.....From
    then on, you will be able to buy stuff on eBay (and lots of other places)
    and Paypal will pay for it and bill your card number.

    It was a rhetorical question. See my last post.

    You're not kidding! Seriously, you gotta love these people for making eBay
    such a rich and rewarding place for us sellers. I know I love each and
    every one of them.

    PayPal does not like its users paying with a CC because they will be the
    ones holding the bag when the buyer does a chargeback for not getting the
    merchandise they paid for. This is why it is totally and utterly foolish
    and breaks every terrestrial and celestial boundary of stupidity to pay for
    any on-line transaction with anything other than a CC or a CC funded PayPal
    payment. Using any other mode of payment is just like wrapping cash in an
    envelope and sending it to a total stranger.

    Avoid Western Union, esp. in cross border trade. Not only are their
    fees exorbitant, but on exchange rates they clip more for themselves.
    (I sold a meter to a guy in Florida, he paid by WestUnion... never
    again!) Western Union "locations" are also "payday loan" outlets *under
    different businesses), an industry in the US that is seriously gouging
    people who can least afford it.
