I recently had two nightmare experiences with eBay. One, I sold a Roland TV switcher from Dublin to France. It was shipped with a courier with tracking. Because of a delay caused by Brexit, the buyer logged a claim with eBay. They refunded him the full amount, even though all parties could see from tracking that the item was in transit. I was blown away by the indifference they showed to me. Even though I sold on eBay.ie, because the buyer was in France his claim was made through eBay.fr. My local eBay washed their hands of it and said talk to France, which made communications extremely diffic
Something radical has changed over at Sony. It used to be nearly impossible to keep up with their camera announcements, now the competition is either catching up or gearing up to surpass them. Shipping on the A7iii was horrendously slow. Even months after reviews were out, it was unavailable at major suppliers. The apsc line has stalled badly, and even the A5100 and 6000 are still lurking around stores embarrassingly. Don’t even start on lenses. Either madly overpriced compared to the competitors, or badly in need of refreshment. Take the (silver only) 16mm apsc lens and compare it to the 16mm
To both of you, I think the general camera buying public really appreciate the efforts you both put in, informing buyers of pros and cons. Have a beer and cool down. Social media is like road rage these days. Don't take it seriously. But honestly, bury the hatchet and keep doing what you do. Build bridges not walls! Both of you are great, AR and JB. I think Jo Public really appreciates the work you do. Don't get too riled up by social media commentary. It's like road rage online these days. Sit down and have a pint and let the BS blow over.
