E Transfers can be cancelled.

You can always call in and report it was never authorized. Takes more time than PayPal dispute but it can be done.

Cash is your best bet unless you can meet at a Police Designated Kijiji Spot and process an emt.

When looking for used lenses on kijiji what should I look out for ? Fake lenses how would I determine that ? Do the sellers usually let you test the lens out on ur camera ?

I haven't used it myself but E-Infinity is an online camera store with some of the best pricing I have seen, and is fairly well reviewed from what I can tell.

Also, there's no guarantee how fast it will be processed. I have had the extremes from nearly instant to one hour.

I'm tempted but they seem to be located in HK. They have a ebay store but with warnings everywhere about potential custom fees. If anyone bought from there I would be interested in knowing.

I have bought and sold camera gear on Kijiji. I am selling stuff now on Kijiji.
Never had any problems.

Usually when you go back and forth with someone, you quickly realize whether they are actually into photography or a scammer. Meet in a public place, test the gear when you meet, and read on the common issue(s) with the specific item so you know what to look for.

Just picked up an old 60-300mm Tamron on kijiji, waiting for the adapter from amazon for my fuji x-t1. Lens cost me $80 and in really good condition.

Most camera stores will have “open box” items and trade-ins. I shop at henrys.com. Try a local camera store.

Was looking for a used Nikon d810 for a long time, found a seller in Calgary with one... couple months back, had to drive 600km there to get it ...the pictures online did justice, and I talked to him on the phone for awhile, I could tell he knew photography, he had the right answers for the camera. I made the deal over the phone so I didn't have to in person, and when he met me, he had some extra stuff that I had asked for. I wen't on vibes and it was great. In the end I got a excellent, mint condition D810 w/16-35 F4 and a 128GB memory card plus a 50mm 1.8 (older metal version).. Paid a fair chunk of change and met outside the Calgary Police Station.... the cops who were driving in were wondering what we were doing, but explained it was a Craigslist transaction and they were totally fine with it... It was hard handing him 3k in cash over but, my vibes were good, and I went with that. Like others say, take your time, ask questions, don't jump into it... If they can't answer the question properly, move on, it will take some time but you will probably find what you are looking for!
Nikon D810, 16-35 F4, 105 F2.8 VR, 200-500 F5.6E
