I spent almost 50 years in the banking industry. That conversation is exactly what would have happened with Citibank. Morons!

It's a hell of a lot more expensive now! Fenway Park has done some serious upgrades - they are terrific.


Yes I know. When I came up for my 50th High School Reunion I drove over. I remember hanging around the tracks during batting practice hoping to get a Ted Williams home run. Never did.

Photos from last year...


Miss living in Brookline. We used to walk to Fenway and pay $.75 to get in the bleachers. Ah, the good old days.

I know this is an old post but I am thinking of buy the 70 to 300 L an was wondering why you were trying to sell it? Thanks


I'm selling it because I just don't use it anymore and I have sold me 5D Mark III, so I don't need the full frame L series anymore. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the lens. Good luck.

I had an interesting experience yesterday. I put my Canon 5D Mark III, etc. listing on this site and also on Craigslist. I didn't really expect anything from Craigslist. Within 15 minutes after I listed it on Craigslist, I had an inquiry, I called, we will meet today and I think it will be a sale. That is supply and demand at its very best.

This has been sold.

In an effort to downsize my photography equipment I am selling my Canon 5D Mark III.

If you are within 200 miles or so of the Washington, DC metro area, I will deliver the camera and give you a change to inspect it.

The kit includes a 24-105L lens and Speedlight 600EX RT flash.

I have the original packing for the camera, lens, and flash.

I also have all the included documentation and cables. I have 2 extra camera batteries. The camera has had a screen protector installed since purchase. The lens has a lens hood.

I will include an Ape Camera Bag, Model ACPRO12400, a 32 GB Lexar SD Card and several CF memory cards. I will also include 4 rechargeable batteries. I also have several books on the operation of the camera.

The camera is in excellent condition with absolutely no signs of wear. The camera has only 1,587 actuations according to EOS Count. I have the documentation.

If you are reading this ad you know the reputation of this camera and of Canon.

I would recommend you read the review at DP Review:
http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/canon-eos-5d-mark-iii/

My goal is to sell the entire kit in one transaction.

This is a cash only sale.

If you are interested please send me a private message and I will be glad to provide pictures of the camera, etc.

Of course, you could just sell it for a VERY low price! Then you could UPS it to me COD with no worries! :D :D


You know I hadn't thought of that, but I certainly appreciate the offer!!

You could find someone on the Hog in your general area willing to meet you with money order in hand. You can always post it with whatever stipulations you want as to how to finalize the deal.


Yes, that is true. When I get ready I might post it on here and see what happens.

I believe the seller needs to specify what forms of payment are acceptable, and that is what the driver will pick up.
If you specify cash(if you can even do that anymore), you are of course putting the driver in the awkward position of carrying it around. Not sure they do that anymore. ;-)

UPS won't accept cash. They will take a cashier's check, money order or personal check if the seller will accept a personal check. All the requirements are on the UPS website.

I recently sold a camera and inquired at the local UPS Store about sending it COD. They told me that they try to discourage people from using their COD service because first, the sender has to put up the full dollar amount. In this case, $500. Secondly, if for any reason the receiver did not pick up the package I would be out the $500. I told them never mind. Made no sense at all to me. Make any sense to you, or was the person I spoke to full of beans?


I will say that I wouldn't put anything on for more than $1,000 because even with COD, you could have a brick in the package and the buyer wouldn't know it until the UPS driver had gone with your money. It is possible to stop payment on a money order, but it cost a bundle. I am downsizing to smaller cameras and have a Canon 5D Mark III that I wouldn't sell on this site because it is too much. I have to sell it on Craigslist. The problem with Craigslist there aren't as many knowledgeable folks that read that.

I've done the UPS COD thing a couple of times, I never had to put any money up. That's nuts. The driver collects the cashiers check or money order and it is mailed to you. If there is no check from the buyer, the package gets sent back. The UPS store you were dealing with simply didn't want to do the paper work.

COD Do they still have that?

Absolutely and it works like a charm!

Looking to sell a lens here, need advice from others that have sold and bought here. What's the best method to conduct the transaction? Pay pal, COD etc..
Thanks!


I have had excellent service from UPS COD. You must be truthful in your ad and show pictures of the equipment. The folks that read these ads are the cream of the crop when it comes to photographic equipment.
