    Price check: Canon 400D with 18-55mm and 90-300mm kit + more

    Hey guys,

    Its looking like my 400D will have to go, as im in need of some cash quickly (christmas etc)

    Anyways, id like a price check to see how much I can get and obviously if its worth it

    Canon 400D in mint condition, less than 800 pictures since new in May. I dont think I need to tell everyone just how good this camera is, I can post some of my pictures if thats any good

    This comes with an 18-55mm kit (standard wide angle lense) and a 90-300mm lense (the non-USM version), a 1GB CF card, Lowepro Rezo carrying case, a Monopod and Tripod with all fittings.

    I paid over £750 for all of this, what do you reckon I would get for it? Bear in mind its 6 months old, with all original packaging

    Cheers,

    Have you tried searching on eBay for similar completed items?

    At a guess, £400 for the camera and kit lens, maybe another £100-£200 depending on what the rest of the kit actually is. What exact tripod and monopod?

    Looking at 1 retailer only, the body & kit lens is £440. That lens is £100, 1gb card £10-15, the Rezos are £10-50 (I'll say £20) depending on model and it sounds like the tripod and monopod are just cheap ones (so say £25 each).

    Given that, the new price would be £625 now (inc. VAT, ex. del). You're probably looking at around £550 all together I guess. You'd might make more off of the tele lens if you sold it separately.

    OK. This is kind of tenuous and would be a blag, but HotUKDeals have a thread of a possible way to get a 400D with a 18-55mm lens for £219, if anyone's interested and willing to give it a try:

    BTW, don't shoot me I'm just the messenger.
