They're still at it on gumtree. I'm trying to sell a canon 100d twin lens combo this time and I woke to 3 inquiries on my phone all sent via gmail and ranging from 2am to 4am a dead giveaway. They try to lead you in by first requesting more pics and then next message asking for your lowest price

I have just noticed a cheap copy of the Lowepro 400AW backpack on ebay from an Australian stockist. It is designed on the original model, not the later Mk II, although with some small added features. If you can't afford the 'real thing' then this might do fine at
Price:
AU $49.99

WTF!!!!!!!:wtf: is going on with Gumtree? My preferred sales-point due to ebay fees and GST. I've had an ad on there for 3 weeks and it's attracted 12 scammers and not one genuine interest.

E-PL5 MINT with shutter count of 700 and panny 12-32 (same clicks) $400 negotiable. Feck it! I've deleted the ad. Anything less and it might as well stay in my stable. I know it's "low tech" but what do they expect for their money with that shutter count, or am I so far out of touch? (someone was really interested until they realised it didn't have "can I connect it to my phone?") .....................FFS! Take the picture with your phone!

I have not had much luck recently selling on facebook buy/sell groups or gumtree. In the end I had to sell on ebay, and suck their 15% commission. I feel the market has slowed down for m43 gear, things seems to be selling more slowly and at slightly lower prices than in the past.

I do think $400, might be a bit overpriced for with the epl5+12-32.
