Valuation: Canon 350D + 17-85mm USM + 50MM 1.8 MK2

Hi all,
So i'm just about to take the plunge and sell my Canon gear to move to Nikon. However, i can't figure out what sort of price to be advertising stuff for. Can anyone help?

Canon 350D
  • Bought in June 2005 from Warehouse Express
  • Fully boxed, with all leads, discs, strap, charger and battery etc
  • Excellent condition, just the normal slight scratches on the grip where your fingernails sit, as Canon make it out of hard plastic :cuckoo:
  • I think it has done about 3-4000 shutter actuations at very most, but can't find an easy way to find this out

Canon 17-85mm IS USM
  • Fully boxed
  • Bought from a user on another forum
  • In excellent condition again, and a very sharp copy

Canon 50mm f1.8 MKII
  • Fully boxed, bought brand new from Warehouse Express (i think) about 1 year ago
  • Again, excellent condition. I take very good care of my stuff, so it has been well looked after

I then have some ancilliary bits, like a 1GB and 2GB Kingston Elite Pro Compact Flash card, and an Adidt remote shutter control.

Any ideas what it is worth (as a whole or splitting)?

Cheers,
Matt

If you have an EBAY account you can view "completed" listings to see what price these items sell for . Take into account fees of between 4-8% according to if you sell with paypal or not.

Alternatively , look at onestop to see cheapest price & then judge how much it is worth S/H. You'll get better return on lenses than body from experience.

Put the whole lot together jazz it up a bit with the extras and stick it on ebay for 500 or best offer, i would imagine someone will offer you between the 350 and the buy it now price of 500.

But why on earth would you want to move from Canon to Nikon

The two lenses are good, even though the second one is very cheap to get now. I think an estimate of 450-500 sounds about right.
Yay, another Nikon convert. Come to the dark side, we have cookies (thanks Angela )
