    Hi

    Can people suggest a good place to find out prices. I ask because I'm close to buying a Olympus 75mm .. and would possibly sell my pentax smc 85mm f2. The only places I know to look are ebay and pentaxforums.

    The ebay prices are surprisingly high to me .. and I want to get a realistic value before posting it for sale here.

    If this is not an appropriate question for this forum .. let me know and I'll delete.

    tks

    Hi,
    Ebay - look at Completed listings, not current
    KEH.com, also note their condition ratings system

    Well "doh" on my part. I shoulda-oughta of thought of "completed" sales on Ebay.
    THANKS!! -- and those prices look closer to what I was expecting.

    yeah, the guys that have them listed for $360 will never sell them. I think with a great rep and great photos, you might get around $200. I think $150 is a solid price for a clean example.
