    My Dad found his old Nikon N55 in the closet a few days back (hasn't been used in years) and asked me to sell it for him, problem is I have absolutely no clue how much its worth. I did a little research online and figured it was worth $80 to $100. Would that be a fair asking price you guys think?

    That is/was a beauty of a camera the old N55...I would always say, it depends on the condition of both body and lens...

    I think $80 will be ok.

    The lens, approx. USD 150.00 for a new one, at least according to the research I have just done.

    So yeah - seeing USD 80.00 for the body, and a good USD 120.00 for the lens (assuming it is in mint condition), you could ask for USD 200.00 for the package...

    Based on what they're selling for online:

    The tamron 70-300mm is worth around $75

    With the 28-80mm kit lens the camera is worth about $45, without a lens it's worth around $20.

    Check e-bay's completed listings. If you don't know how to do that, Google is your friend.

    (nah, I'm not being a grouch, you'll just learn a lot more that you'll need to know by looking it up yourself. ;))
