Re: What will you pay for second hand?

I think the previous posted are spot on.

Items that are current even in mint condition I would be looking at 25% off minimum to make it worth while.

I would also go for buying / selling on a specialist forum rather than ebay as in my experience forum users are often much more sympathetic on equipment , describe it accurately and are identifiable in a way that ebay users are not.

From a sellers perspective, forums are better as the users are knowledgeable and have a good idea what the going rate is for things and are prepared to "come and go a bit" in a good natured way

Mind you if it's an item that's rare and hard to get hold of then you try and get it when you can and pay what you think it's worth !
