hey there, i am a young photographer and have my uncle gave me a set of equipment to use.
I now feel the need to progress toward using a digital SLR and would like to upgrade my equipment. Which means i either have to trade in or sell some of the older equipment to purchase an upgrade.

However, i have no knowledge about the evaluation of value of the equipment that i possess and thus would like to seek some help with honest evaluations on the value of the equipment listed below.

I feel a lot safer asking on forums instead of bringing them to a shop incase i might be shortchanged due to my lack of knowledge on the value of these equipments.

All help will be very much appreciated.

The condition of the equipment are good both aesthetically and in functionability and i would rate them on an average of 8.5/10.

Cameras :
Nikon FM Body
Nikon FM2 Body

Lens :
Nikon 35 mm, 1-2.8 prime lens
Tamron 35-80mm 2.8-5.6
Vivitar 70-210mm 4.5-5.6 (macro focusing zoom lens)

Flash :
sunpak auto zoom 3600 thyristor (side mount/big big flash!)
Metz mecablitz 28C-2 (top mount)

once again, thank you very much.

check the b&s threads for same equipment and their selling price
you can also check ebay and other auction sites

but 2nd shops will only buy at lower prices

might want to do a lil search in the marketplace of the forum you'll get a hang of the prices there.

You can narrow it to buy and sell only i the advance search section.



oh and your metz flash should require you to tell people more info about the model number etc.


good luck.

The Nikon price guide mentioned by ortega only lists the new stuff that can be bought from shops currently.
What you can do is list a WTS thread for each item on the B&S forum and let people bid (start with a very low bid price but put a high enough reserve price to protect yourself).
