For $1000, a body and Zeiss 55mm, I'd have to seriously consider. The scratched screen is not a major problem. And the peeling vinyl over the SD card door looks to have lifted due to use, and probably could be glued back in place easily.
The screen issue is due to the outer coated film being scratched. There is a factory replacement from Sony. Or you can peel it off and replace it with a hard 'glass' aftermarket LCD cover.
There was a thread here on its replacement.
If you decide to go with it, I think this is the part that is damaged if you should want to replace it.
Thanks, Guys! I sent the guy an email but haven't heard back. So it may not be an option...or it's already sold and he's ignoring me.The screen isn't scratched, it's just the coating has worn off. I have the same condition on my A7ii. I've tried to rub the coating completely off but the last bit in the center is really tough and just won't come off.
It doesn't effect the use of the camera at all. It just makes it a little harder to see the screen when out doors in bright light.
Sounds like things are busy at home and he prefers to just pop it in the mail at lunch. He's got great seller feedback on FM, so i'm not concerned. Would just be easier for me to deal in cash.Yes I would assume the residue will come off with IPA.
What I'm wondering is why someone wouldn't be willing to meet person to person. I'd offer to meet at his bank and be prepared to deal in cash. Safe for you and him. He can get the bank to run the bills thru their counter to check that their good.
Yep - I asked him to test it as he hadn't used it in awhile. Still working on him - we'll see if he goes for meeting at the post office.How did you confirm the low shutter count?
Did he take a pic with the camera so you could download it to an EXIF reader ap or site?
Here's a site I found that works well. I've already tried it on my camera's and sent it to friend as well:
Yeah, I agree. The not meeting in person takes away the benefit of being local. I mean, it'll be here next day with priority mail instead of two days...but still.Not trying to talk you out of going for it, just trying to make sure you do your do diligence in getting what you want.
Keep us informed.
