    Hi everyone

    I am new to the site and am after a bit of advice.

    I am looking to sell some of my kit to help fund the purchase of a Nikon D700, but I wouldn't have a clue on how much to ask for them.

    The kit includes a Sony A700 dslr
    Sony 16-80mm f3.5-4.5 ZA VS T* DT Lens
    Sigma 50-500mm f4-6.3 EX DG Lens - Sony fit
    Sigma 70mm f2.8 EX DG Macro Lens - Sony fit

    All items come with there original boxes and are in good condition. Only had the dslr, 16-80mm and 50-500mm lenses for a year.
    Any advice would be great or if there are anyone knows of any stores that take part-exchange.

    Cheers

    Do a search on eBay completed listings for each item. This should give you a ball park figure of the going rate.

    I see you took the bait and joined the site thenGrin

    You will never be able to leave now or at least if you do you will return like I did.

    I thought you may get a bit more of an idea from the people on here so you could then post it in the classifieds on here. Never know someone may have more of an idea than I do.

    Not sure how you work it out, do you go for 50% of new prices or pitch it a tad higher than that?

    In the old days (before ebay) a dealer would give between 40 and 50% of the new price and sell it for about 80% of the new price. You could usually sell it for between 60-75% of the new price.
    These days with ebay anything can happen.
    As Adam says ebay is a good guide to how much things go for. Best way is to click the "completed listings" option then you can search for items that have sold and get a feel for the value. It's good kit so should get snapped up. And you could certainly try our classifieds first.
