Selling to a dealer

GAS has has won and I am buying a OM1 Mkii it is still on it's way, also for the last 3 or 5 or 7 years I have been under an ultimatum to get rid of my unused cameras.

I am not keen on e-Bay, at the moment forum members are otherwise engaged so I wish to trade in my old cameras to the supplying dealer of the Mkii.

I would ideally like to take my boxed old cameras to the dealer and leave with the new camera and only have spent a smaller amount of money.

Any suggestions.

Yes - the shop by the old arch. I have a E3, E5, OMD EM1, a 12-60mm 4/3rds lens, batteries and CF cards so I hope they can offer me a good price.

http://www.ffordes.co.uk/ , but expect to pay 20% commission. Why not advertise here? If it is in good condition and the price is made attractive, it should sell.

Re: Selling to a dealer

In the past couple of years I've had good experiences trading stuff in with LCE (the main London shop), SRS and Wex.

However I agree it wouldn't do any harm to try a quick listing on here.

Re: Selling to a dealer

Do not get you hopes to high, I am getting prices at the minute and was surprised how low they are
16 was the best offer for a HL6 grip to fit the E5.

I had quite a bit of kit and LCE offered surprise surprise all my kit came out at a straight swap!

Another offered 3300 after commission had been taken for the same kit?

Park cameras stated they will not take 4/3 kit and offered 380 for my E-M 1 body.

They offered you 380 for kit that they don't take?

No, that's not what Ed said .....

....... they don't take in '4/3' any more ( 4/3 being the original dslr system ), they are only prepared to accept M4/3 hence their offer on his em1.

As it happens it would appear original 4/3 kit is actually dropping further in price, I thought it may have bottomed out but I see 'LCE Southampton' have just listed a 50-200 SWD for 299 and a 7-14 SHG for 399, both graded as 5*

Kind regards, Simon

Re: Selling to a dealer

Ah knew something was wrong in my logic circuits hence me questioning it ta for clarification.
Knew 4/3 would have to drop just now, since I was about to list the very same pair of 4/3 lenses for sale, so obviously lce had to list those now lol.
Oh well at least I know the current pricing .

Re: Selling to a dealer

No problem,

Actually there has never been a better time to buy the best '4/3' lenses as long as you plan to keep them, for resale/ p-ex has sadly gone through the floor.

Re: Selling to a dealer

The crazy thing is that you can still buy four thirds lenses new, although I wonder just how many they sell these days. The cheapest new price for the 7-14mm seems to be 1399 from WEX, while the 50-200 is 1,085.68 from Amazon. Those second hand lenses are terrific bargains if you want great glass at rock bottom prices.

A pair of 50-200 SWD actually went down to 280 each in LCE Norwich recently. I was surprised as this seems to be below current ebay price, but perhaps they just want to shift 4/3 on.

Re: Selling to a dealer

As suggested the rest of my 4/3rds kit has been listed in the For Sale section. The E5 was snapped up even before it got onto any advert page by a member seeing my earlier post and emailing me to see if I wanted to sell the camera. So two happy people, the purchaser (I received an acknowledgement of receipt note) and myself.
