    Price Check: Nikon D5000 + 18-200mm VR lens

    Hi,
    I bought this a while back with the intention of getting into SLR photography, but I've not had the time to get to grips with it. Any ideas what it's worth?

    The 18-200mm lens was pretty expensive I seem to remember, so I don't really fancy just dropping it on eBay for 1p and seeing what happens. Are there places that buy 2nd hand camera gear?

    Cheers...

    Have a look on some Ebay completed listings and get a rough price - beware of a normal auction without a reserve though.

    Yes. Most cities will have independent specialists that have a lot of second hand gear, I like London Camera Exchange but there are many others. Sometimes you need to stroll the high street to find them though!

    None of the shops will offer decent prices as they not only have to make a profit but also have to give a warranty too. If you want the best price either use Ebay or use a local ad of some sort.

    This will give you a rough idea of how much the D5000 is worth on Ebay:

    This is how much you will get for your D5000 from CEX:

    https://uk.webuy.com/product.php?sku=SDIGNIKD5000001B

    This is how much your lens in its various versions gets from CEX:

    You will barely make £100 selling the lens to CEX.

    I've not looked at CEX, but I would expect so. More importantly though is the relationship so should you go back to photography at a later date they'll still be there! My local LCE keeps a record and if you're a previous customer they tend to give more generous discounts.
