I was wondering how other photographers usually go about selling their used lenses and camera bodies. I never sold any of my used equipment until recently although I have sold other items and different collectibles on eBay. I have also only bought a used lens once before and while I don't think I was really duped, the seller sort of left out a little detail would have been nice to know before I bid. The lens I was buying was a 70-200mm VR and it had a problem with the hood coming off too easily while in the reverse position. The lens itself was in an almost immaculate condition but the hood problem was just a little annoying, for example, when I try to pick up the lens from my bag or if I bump into it with my hand. I probably would have still bid on the lens but it would have been nice if I knew that it had that problem to begin with. At any rate, I had a trip that was coming shortly and I didn't want to be entangled in some lengthy return process so I didn't raise any fuss and let it go.
So what I want to know is this; how much detail do usually go into when you're selling your used equipment? Do you usually point out any and all imperfections when you sell your equipment? And finally, what do you consider to be proper selling etiquette?
