Sent a lens and another item to get an estimate on what I might expect in cash or trade. The cash offer was lower than I could get here selling in the forum, but I really wanted a trade for a particular new lens anyway. Was offered a demo lens plus cash for my equipment. Didn't really want to risk the demo lens, and was offered an open box, like new lens for a straight-up trade. Received a lesser lens due to some communication confusion, but Jack Gold at Adorama was able to come through and offer me a more expensive lens for my equipment plus a little cash on my end. Getting the new lens soon. And although I don't mind selling here and have sold/bought/traded THOUSANDS upon THOUSANDS of dollars of equipment here (including about $1500 in the past month and much more years ago), all I had to do was send my stuff in (at Adorama's cost via UPS), have a few conversations, then wait for them to ship back out to me. No messing around with listing, negotiations, monitoring threads, paypal, shipping, etc. No headaches.
Just passing on a very positive experience, since I know that all we ever hear about are the negative experiences. Hope Helen sees this.

Try selling on Amazon, things sell very quickly and at prices higher than the forums...

Nice that you had a good experience with them.
Mine, on the other hand, was terrible.
I was flat-out lied to.
I had them send my lens back to me and will be trading it in at the "other" competitor.
