    All,

    I have a bunch of Canon FD equipment that I wish to sell. The default option, needless to say, is eBay. Are there other places I should consider? If I decide to go the non-auction route, is there a 'bluebook' that provides some guidance regarding appropriate pricing? I am better off trying to sell everything as lot or is it better to piece it out?

    Thank you.

    p.s. If anyone is interested, I can list the stuff I have for sale here.

    To find the 'going rate'...you could see what people are charging on E-bay. www.keh.com, also might have plenty of old gear for sale, so you could compare prices there.

    In general, you can make more money by selling this one by one...but it will certainly take longer and use up a lot more of your time...and what is your time worth?

    You could try posting it up here, but most members won't buy from a new member with only 2 posts. If you do put them on E-bay, you could put up the links here.

    Out of curiosity...what do you have? I just acquired a T70.

    I had a pile of 35mm stuff that I considered selling. When I saw how little it went for, I donated it to a local high school and took a tax donation instead. Just something to consider.

    The fact that you can't adapt FD lenses to most (all?) DSLRs tends to put off a lot of the ebay technocrowd - but they still sell from time to time. I would think that a camera fair or swap meet would be a good place to start offline.
