produced after 1995 have
a 30-day warrenty against mechanical defects. We retain the right of either
making a repair or making a refund in case of a mechanical defect that I did
not detect myself.
For cameras and lenses produced before 1996, common sense should prevail.
One should assume that many of the items have seen little recent use and,
therefore, have not recently been cleaned, lubricated, or adjusted.
This means that many items might have shutter speeds and/or light meters
that might need adjusting, and that lenses and other optical items might
require lubrication and/or cleaning. We can not offer a warrenty for these
items which are essentially collector's items. I am not a technician myself,
but I have enough knowledge of photo equipment to spot obvious flaws. I
examine lenses by eye for scratches, fungus, haze or cleaning marks. I will
always mention flaws in the item description. On your request it is possible
to have an independent technician examine the equipment before you make the
decision to buy. Of course, you will have to pay for the inspection costs in
If the item is clearly not
according the description, it may be returned for full credit or repair within 10 days
of receipt. If defects have not been mentioned in the description, I will
have it repaired at my expenses. If repair will not have a positive result,
I will refund the full amount. For mechanical defect on items that were produced after 1995
this period is extended to 30 days. Of course returned items must be in
exactly the same condition when returned as they were when received by you.
We do not refund any charges for shipping, handling, or insurance. Please
note that we can not accept any returns without our prior notice and
So far I never had an unresolved
disagreement with anyone; I always managed to find a satisfying solution
whenever opinions are different. The client has the right to demand a second
opinion of an independent third party (for example Leica Gmbh Germany or the
Rollei representative "De Greef" in Holland). I will comply with
Of course I always use my knowledge to
determine the originality of the equipment. I guarantee that all the
equipment I sell, is original. In theory it is possible that I am the victim
of buying false equipment myself, while I sell this false equipment (without
knowing the equipment is false) to customers. Rare and unusual collectors
items are expensive. For your protection I give warrenty on originality for
a period of 1 year !
