    I haven't used my panasonic 25mm for a few months now and i would like to sell it. It is in very good condition but i wondering how much i could sell it for, either here or on ebay. Any one have any other tips for selling this lens? Thank you

    I think prices have dropped a bit on these. Seems like $350 - $375 is reasonable here. Search on ebay for sold listings. It may yield more for you even after the fees.

    yes this is what i actually just did. On ebay i found the average for about 10 that have sold in the past few months and i came up with an average price of 459. If i sell at this price after fees i should make around 400 give or take.

    ebay looks like best best. KEH is selling through Amazon for $399 with a 6 month warranty. You don't want to compete with that.

    I just checked ebay; thought that $459 seemed high. Looking back in to April the highest sold listing I see for a used lens is $400...

    I should have been more clear. I meant 450 in Canadian dollars. The exchange rates right now are pretty horrible so 400 USD is around 480 Canadian right now. So i imagine that is probably good value for the money considering i paid 650 for it 2 years ago.

    Isnt the fact that is refurbished could be why you got it so cheap? I am not sure if this is what i should expect to get

    A planet called Gaia
    if he got a refurbished unit with panasonic warranty, then that's about as good a deal as a very slightly used one without warranty..

    You should check with KEH. They pay for you to ship it to them.

    They will give you a quote on buying it. After you figure the ebay fees, shipping, and hassle, their offer may or may not be attractive. Nothing to lose checking.
