Checklist for Buying Used Lenses
Other places where people often buy used gears are Craigslist and Kijiji. Make sure that the person who is selling the camera gear is knowledgeable about what they are selling and they provide all the necessary contact information.
Unfortunately, that’s where you are more likely to come across scammers and thieves, so you have to practice extreme caution when dealing with sellers there. Remember, if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is…
While some lenses (especially those with image stabilization in them) will naturally rattle, it is still a good idea to give a slight shake and make sure that you don’t hear any crazy rattling sounds coming from the inside of the lens. You do not want any lens parts to be loose.
