With that much money, why not get a NEW 5D III from authourized dealer
I thought I was the only one thinking this... +1
Even if 20K clicks is nothing... for me, the deceptive listing justifies asking for a refund. Something to the effect of "Given your shutter count (the most important factor in considering a used camera) is higher by over double what your listing claims, I propose that....etc" I'd probably make a subtle hint that you plan on reporting/leaving negative feedback if they don't agree to credit you a reasonable difference.
The fact is, if you DON'T know the actual shutter count, dont make one up. Even if it's an innocent mistake—it's still the seller's mistake and he has to be left accountable for destroying his own credibility and the piece of mind of the buyer. And now the buyer is responsible for shipping a 10lb package and being out thousands of dollars in the bank for something they didnt even want in the first place. I say you deserve a credit (do it by issuing the seller an invoice through PayPal and be clear about what it's for). If you decide to return it, I say the seller should be responsible for taking it back without hassle and comping you the return shipping. I've done that on eBay as a seller when I made a mistake in the listing...
