Am I being unrealistic?
 
I have 3 cameras, PL5, E-30, & E1. I was thinking, or am thinking, of selling off the E-30+35mm Macro,+SHLD4 grip for 400. Am I way off thinking I should ask that much? No camera shop is even interested in them for part exchange, one isn't interested at all. The E-30 has one fault that keeps it married to the grip, pull the battery camera forgets time and date. Maybe I just have a nice back-up camera at this point.

That sounds about the right value for that lot.

Best to offer it up here and on eBay, as "camera shops" don't seem to be able to think beyond their turnover targets...

I have dealt with the "London Camera Exchange" chain a number of times and each time put digital in as part exchange against new, they have by comparison with others been far more interested, knowledgeable and willing to deal.

Last deal they offered me a £1000 more than any of the others - needless to say, I went with them and had great prices on new kit as well - highly recommend!

Camera World http://www.cameraworld.co.uk/ are a reputable company I have dealt with and deal quite a lot in secondhand gear. They will give you an initial quote via their website. A number of other members have recommended Ffordes in Scotland as well.

Obviously you will get a better price selling direct but it's fairly easy.

Offered me the highest price on every piece of kit I asked them to price.

They also include collecting it from you.

But agree that I would put it on here first.

Regards

Unfortunately they were the ones not interested.:mad: Can't blame them, it's old tech now, and they might have a problem moving it.

Thanks, I have an ad and pictures ready to go, was just about to post it on here then got sentimental. The problem is the camera just feels so good in my hand it's hard to let go. I know the E-1 feels good too, and if I get a grip it will feel about the same.... Couple of days I should have it for sale. It needs a home and to be used, I use the PL5 most/all the time now.

The pictures of the E-30 are in my gallery.
