Truly hope I am in the correct thread, I apologize if I am not - still new/ish to this forum! :oops: :p

I'm looking to sell my T2i, but the prices are all over the map so I'm not sure what to charge. Here is what I would be selling:

---> Canon EOS Rebel T2i (bought NEW late 2010, its a little less than a year and a half old - I still have the original box. The lenses were bought new along with it.)
---> Canon BG-E8 Battery Grip for T2i (with original box, for those who care about that sort of thing :P)
---> original T2i/Canon neckstrap + original battery included
---> EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II lens
---> EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS lens
Both lenses have Hoya 58mm Pro-1D HMC Protector filters on them.

What is a good rate for the above equipment? I'm looking for a ballpark range so I know where to start :) Everything is in great condition. The body and lenses have no marks or chips or scratches. Thanks in advance!!

That sounds pretty good to me. I'm still not 100% sure if I should sell or not..the money would be sent straight back into the "next lens" funds, which is my primary reason. The only reason I would keep it would be as a backup in case something goes horribly wrong with my 5D3, but I don't shoot weddings or anything like that yet - so its not "imperitive" that I have a backup body....or is it? :( :confused:

Selling it as a package will be the problem.

If you don't shoot anything that is a one time thing (wedding, events, etc) and most jobs can be rescheduled if something goes wrong then it isn't imperative to keep it. I would say if you do this for a living, I would defiantly keep a second body, but not imperative.

As another poster mentioned, selling as a package can be hard. You can prolly sell it all if you part.

no one wants all that equipment together....you will have better luck parting everything out.

finding someone that needs/wants that overall package can be a challenge. A new photog or someone stepping up from a P&S might be interested.

I don't do this for a living yet, its more part of a bigger aspect - I'm a graphics designer first and work for a company that specializes in that. The Photography aspect is a newer section. Im a college student, attending a 2yr photography program - but I've been shooting for a few years so I classify myself as professionally amateur, :lol: I mainly shoot events - sporting events, but not as the official photographer - yet - ( I know people in the events that could get me the gig but I don't feel I'm ready for that pressure just yet. Hundreds of riders over a span of 6+ hours a day for three days expecting photos from me..not yet, haha.) So I don't think I'll be hardpressed to keep the T2i as backup, not now that I've been spoiled by the IQ and AF abilities of the 5D3. If worse comes to worse I can rent a body from my college.

Selling them apart might be a good idea...I might get more money out of it that way :lol: Thanks for your input!

I'll still push it as a package. You might have to be a bit more pushable in terms of price but there may be someone out there that will get a good deal out of it.

I sold my 5DII with 5 lenses, a flash, battery grip and other accessories all for $2500 shipped. I only did this because i was pushing it out with anticipation to go to Nikon. Obviously, you still see me here so i won't get into that ;). I stood firm with my price and it went out immediately.

For a kit, I say go for everything half off or close to 60-75 percent off depending on condition. I know you want some cash back but it only makes the deal better if the other party feels like they're getting a hell of a deal.

Just don't short change yourself and sell it for something that you don't want to get less for.

Hope that helps!

Most likely you are looking at $600 on the high end and that's if you part it out. $525 - $550 is a more realistic figure.
A Canon refurb T2i body only with a 90 day warranty is under $400
EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS lens can be bought for about $125 - $140 and the market is flooded with them at the higher prices.
EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II lens is just a kit lens and while it's still a nice lens most people won't care one way or the other about it in the sale.
Most 3rd party grips can be had for $50-$60 and come with 2 batteries/charger and AA battery tray from retailers like Linkdelight.
The filters won't add much to the package either so I wouldn't count on that to entice a would be buyer.

Most importantly you have to be competitive in your pricing to want the customer to purchase your equipment vs the options I've listed. It's a bummer because we've all been there and seen some of our equipment devalue at an astonishing rate. I would suggest keeping the T2i/grip for a backup because it still is a great body for capturing images.

If you do sell I hope you can get more, but always prepare for the worst and hope for the best

I agree, sell the items separately
