  • What should I ask for an unused E-P5?

    In late 2014 I bought a new E-P5 as a backup camera, in case my E-M1 failed. Apart from doing initial tests on it, I never used it, so it is like new. I now have an E-M1 II as well, so no longer need the E-P5 and I'm thinking of selling it. I do realise that it won't be worth much. I have the box and all the original bits, and it has a 128GB memory card in it.

    I have two questions:
    1. How should I sell it? Should I try on this forum, or eBay or somewhere else?
    2. What would be a fair price to ask? Or what should I expect to get for it?
    Thanks.

    Find the median on eBay. Deducting eBay seller's fees would be a fair asking price here. I don't think it makes much difference whether it's new and unused or lightly used, it's value will be roughly equivalent. I'm not sure if electro-mechanical items store very well, all things designed to move - the shutter mechanism for example - benefit from being exercised. Leaving the battery dormant for long periods is also less than ideal.
