Re: Camera/lens price help

I've no idea of how the market is over your side of the world, but I'd say presuming mint condition about 70% of the new price. Sadly, I think that it does not really matter if something is 2 months old or 10 months old.

However, nothing tried and nothing gained, so if you can find a buyer who really wants the camera and is prepared to pay a bit more you could be lucky.

For the camera you could try subtracting the tax and perhaps a little more and see if there are any takers.

Personally, I always want to know the shutter count as being the most important point - last camera I bought was over a year old but the count was 258

Re: Camera/lens price help

Check your local buy and sell or Craiglist...and do a search...see what others are selling for and see how badly and quickly you need the money. Price it such that you can sell it yet still can live with the price you get. Watch out for lowballers and stay firm to your price....
