I have two of my lenses that I am thinking of selling. I am looking to raise some money to purchase a 'L' lens probably 70-200mm f4, they are expensive in the UK.
I have looked on Ebay and other sites and it seems the prices vary.
I know that in the selling forum it is against the rules to test the ground so I was wondering if anyone knew a way I could get an idea of how much to sell them for. I know someone will say its what someone is willing to pay, I just want to get the best price.

Canon 28-80mm USM IV 3.5-5.6mm

Tamron 70-300 F/4-5.6LD macro 1:2 & zoom lens

HOSTED PHOTO DISPLAY FAILED: ATTACH id 478368 does not exist. ]


Thanks for looking.

Check the prices on ebay as the auction ends. Prices usually shoot up in the last minute. :) You'll be surprised how much! I sold off all my Canon FD equipment about a year ago, and was surprised at how much everything was worth! In several cases, I sold for more than I paid for some of my lenses 20+ years ago.

Search the sell forum for these lenses and see what folks asked for and which ones sold. That is the best way to determine what you could get for them here.

Ebay is the best place to get an idea of what your lenses will go for. As richardfox stated check the final selling price. Put the item in your watch folder and see what the final bid was on several items to get a range. Then you can sell it wherever you want.

Or if you are a registered member on ebay -- you can do a custom search on your item of interest and limit it to completed sales only
