Re: Lens price

Your best bet is to check Ebay to see what thye are going for and then to try to sell it privately for a similar amount.

Selling to a shop (in PX) will never return the same amount as you will get privately. The shop has overheads to cover, such as rent, staff wages, electricity etc, plus they also want to make a little profit too.
