Recently, there was a 65-116 extension tube up on eBAy.  It appeared from 
the photo  to be in very nice condition.

In fact it was advertised as being in "like new" condition.

However, looking at the photo, I noticed it was missing the tripod mount 
collar.  When 'new', it would have had the collar so in my eyes it was not 
in the condition it was when new.

I contacted the seller, on the off chance that the seller was not aware it 
was incomplete, suggesting that the description "like new" might be 
missleading in view of a significant part being missing.

He shirtily replied that his description only applied to the condition of 
the item as it currently was.
