Do not blindly trust every seller or buyer! Protect yourself by following the below safe trading tips.

Safety Tips

For Buyers

  1. Always meet the seller at a safe location and inspect the item before purchasing. Following this one rule will help you avoid most scams.
  2. Watch out for unrealistic offers. If it appears too good to be true, it probably is. Unrealistic offers are used to motivate purchasers to make hasty decisions.
  3. Always verify the seller's credentials. Ask the seller to provide a photo ID and proof of address.
  4. The best way to transact is to collect the item and pay at the same time. Never transfer funds or use a debit/credit/atm card to pay someone you do not know before collecting an item.
  5. Ask for clear information on condition of the item, price, payment and delivery method.
  6. Use only those payment methods that you trust and are familiar with. Never give out your financial information.
  7. It is recommended to purchase items directly from the seller.
  8. Always test the functioning of the item before purchase.
  9. Do your research on comparative prices for the product.

For Sellers

  1. Try to take the full payment at the time of the delivery. Remember to use a safe location to meet.
  2. Watch out for fake currency and money orders. Be aware that banks will not honour fake currency/money order and will hold you responsible for it.
  3. Verify the buyer’s credentials if necessary.
  4. Ensure that your product meets the features you list in your ad to avoid any misunderstanding with the buyer.
  5. Do not share your financial information except the one required for payment.

Thanks Bro,
My budget is up to 20,000 and would prefer Nikon lenses only and the primes not zoom. I know, I can't afford a Leica.......

Hello there....

Sorry to sound a bit pessimistic, but it would be very difficult to find a good quality wide angle lens for that price. Most Nikon lens (quality ones, i.e) are in the USD 1000+ range. Third party lens makers such as Tamaron, Sigma & Tokina have good products at around half the price. All the above companies offer nikon mount wide angle lens in the 12-24mm range, which should be more affordable than the equivalent nikon lens.

All the best for your search.

Best,
APK

P.S: I use a Rokinon 14mm (which is 21mm on my nikon DSLR) wide angle which I got for around USD 300 from abroad on one of my trips. Very sharp lens.

You should be able to get AIS lenses within your budget, I recently sold 24 f2 for 12K on olx.

I know someone selling this, Nikon 20mm f/3.5 UD , if you are interested, I can connect if it's still available. I was offered but I no longer shoot Nikon so I passed.

Hi Brother,
Thanks a lot! I would have preferred 2.8 but 3.5 is also not bad for landscapes! Kindly connect me to the seller if it is still available.
