    Usually, resale prices are low because brand new ones or newer models retail for lower prices (maybe 'coz of economies of scale or a more cost-effective technology). Unless, of course, if a particular (good) product has been discontinued without a worthy successor, then it makes perfect sense for it to have a high resale value (e.g. Olympus B300).

    Juz my 2 cents.

    Erm. I think you misquoted my sentence...read the line before that sentence as well) What i mean is that the prices should of cos drop but not too much until lelong lelong prices. If the brand new 10D is selling for 2600-2800 then why should the d60 drop to prices below say the 2k mark?

    So even if the buyers all wanna buy at say 1500, if the sellers work together and say hey...my d60 is not that bad after all and 2000 is what it is really worth, then buyers should oblige and cough up the 2k to buy the d60. Buyers do have power with their cash but that doesn't mean sellers can't have their say in determining prices.

    So my point is, dun accept lelong lelong prices for your excellant D60..unless you're selling to me of course...haha

    PS: I know my principle of economics...heheheh... didn't do too well for A levels but coping well in uni hahaha

    Ok, now I get you. Your statement wasn't clear just now.

    i guess it would be ok to follow the rate of 2ndhand market quote

    eg, usually 70% of the selling price
    since a new D60 is $3.6k, then 2ndhand would be ard $2.5k

    shld be reasonable for the seller to ask for a higher price if selling a warranty set

    but still subjective to price competition from newer products

    just my 2cts worth...

    OT, but I'm curious, any idea how this "rate of 2nd hand market quote" came about?

    Yes this is indeed a good strategy, but count in other factors such as eager seller, and possible mistrust between various buyers, etc, it will be under a not so ideal situation.

    Just refer to the OPEC countries, oil producing countries and what they are facing now(obviously the lack of unity out of the factors above) and u will know why.
