What will you pay for second hand?

I noticed a 'mint' M.Zuiko 60mm Macro on ebay and put in an early bid of 301 knowing that I wouldn't be around when the auction ended. As it turned out I was outbid at 311 which isn't too bad a price, Cameraworld price is 369.

But it made me think - what is the maximum you would pay for a second hand item as a percentage of new price - assuming that the item is readily available and current? Bearing in mind the lack of warranty and taking the word 'mint' with a pinch of salt on ebay (I would probably be more trusting on this forum knowing the reputation of some members) I would look for a minimum of 25% off new price.

What does the team think?
