I've got my 20D for sale in the classifieds here on POTN...(This is not to get you to go look).
I was thinking of putting it on Ebay and in my search, I found several used 20D's with "Buy it now's" of $600-$650.... Are they worth that?

The 20D's I found all came with only the original wires, charger and paperwork. Mine has many little extra's and I'm selling it for $450 so maybe I'm screw'n myself!?!?

I've seen a few 30D's in the 650 range. I think you have it priced about right for this forum. You'll get people who don't know better to buy it on Ebay for higher though.

Yeah, I guess thats true... Ebay is not the best place to buy used equipment!

Thanks for the reply!

Search Ebay for the completed 20D auctions...you'll get a better idea of what people are willing to pay.

They go for around $450-$500 for a good price. Some get fooled into buying it higher (eBay, for instance). I bought mine off eBay for $500 with the kit lens and a 1GB card. I messaged the guy and convinced him to end the auction for a straight-up price :)

Yeah, I'm watching a few but they are days out to the finish.

I paid $625 for this when I bought it so I think $450 is more than fair with all the stuff I threw in....

Don't watch those, but rather use the advanced search and check the box for "Completed listings only". This way you know the price paid for all previous auctions.

Yeah. eBay is gonna have higher prices than POTN. Honestly, though, many of the people in POTN charge and pay much higher prices for used gear than what I would ever expect.

True.. I was going to buy a 430EX flash used but the guy wouldn't budge off of his price of $235.... I bought it new for $244!?!?

I guess camera gear just doesn't depreciate in value. I'm used to selling and buying computer parts at an extremely friendly forum and you don't make much back with what you sell even if it's brand new.

They're worth $450 max in my opinion. You can get a 30d for $575 in great shape, and its a whole generation newer then the 20d.

Think again about that statement! I recently sold a mint 20D body with <5000 shutter actuations, all of the original package contents and in box, many accessories which had not even been used at all, and including a transferrable Mack Warranty with 2.5 years left on it, for only about 1/3 of the new price I paid. No one expressed any interest when the 3 year old camera was closer to 50% of the new price! To me, a 66% depreciation in 3 years is a horrid example of the digital fads that bodies now have for life cycles, in contrast to what film cameras had for value retention (before digital cause it to drop precipitously!) Two year old 30D that sell on POTN for 50% of the new price.
