Re: What will you pay for second hand?

Prices on eBay vary considerably. At the moment the 45mm f/1.8 is selling at prices upto the same as from Amazon, etc..

On avarage they go for 15% to 20% below retail.

I normally buy s/hand only when it reaches 50% of retail, but by that time most things are fairly old.

Waiting for new models and buying the out of date model often works well.

I got a new XZ-1, a few days after they launched the XZ-2 for about 60% of retail price.

A lot is down to luck in spotting the good buys

Have fun...
