A friend gave me three Nikkor ai manual focus lenses. Where can I sell them besides ebay and craigslist?

How many posts do I need before I can sell them here?

Thanks.

You need to be a member for 6 months and have 300 or more posts to sell here. If you're looking to sell immediately you may want to look elsewhere.

ouch. Everyone is real nice here and that's great but a marketplace sure is a big attractor to folks. I understand the need for some threshold but that seems kind of high. Oh well.

I think 6 months is ridiculous. What is there to do in here, Post Pictures? :tongue:


Will feedback from ebay and other forums help? Some boards do that.

I did some searching on the board and apparently someone threatened legal action against the owners and the marketplace was shut down for a while. Then apparently it opened backup.

The marketplace of forums is a huge draw. I don't mean this rude or insensitive at all but I think of other forums first when it comes to buying and selling. I'm not the owner so I don't know how I'd feel but I can tell you from a newbie perspective the board simply doesn't have the same appeal as those that do sell.

I thought so too. But when thousands of dollars are potentially at stake, I can see and understand why these rules are in place.
