    I have someone trying to get rid of what's in the picture. Since it's in the film part, I"m sure everyone can tell what it is. Just to be clear though,

    L-R:

    SB-10 Flash
    M-100 (not sure what this does)
    F-501/N2020 with 35-70 lens attached
    Wide Angle Converter
    "Close Up" Lens
    Sigma DL 75-300 Push Pull Macro Lens


    I'm mainly interested in the body and the two lenses. I have tested the 35-70 with a flash and just taking some pictures of the metal mount, there is some insanly crazy, and very much so alot of CA. ALOT! It might be a fun lens though just to have but man, I don't know about that CA.

    As for the 75-300, I did some sharpness tests (of which I might post if needed) and while it's definitely an older lens, I think it holds up to being old and kind of sharp. I thought it would be a fun lens to have if it were cheap. I posted somewhere else that the lady had it, and I was linked to a KEH listing where the Sigma lens sold for $40.

    As far as the whole package, I'm not really interested in the adaptors but if someone else is, she won't do anything with them and I won't either. What should I offer this lady for the body, 35-70 and also the Sigma? I don't really need them but I have always had an interest in having a film body to mess around with. I have always wanted to shoot film.

    What do you think?

    Well not trying to sell them. Sorry, I know it's confusing.

    I would like to buy them but don't know what to offer the lady. They were her ex husbands and she just doesn't have a need for anything. They're just sitting. No use

    well, bodies are pretty much obsolete but glass and flashes should be useful.
    try this - go to B&H website, they have approximate estimator on selling stuff. put in the values and see what you get.

    Mike,

    Most of the stuff you list there isn't worth near as much as they will probably want for it.

    If it is just a Nikon film body you want, I have several, all in excellent condition, would sell them for somewhere between $30 - $40 each (+ USPS.)

    I have a Nikon N5005 AF body only (F-401X), EXCELLENT (uses "AA" cells) condition - $40.00.

    A Nikon AF N65 body only, also excellent condition, (uses more expensive proprietary batteries) - $35.00 + USPS

    A Nikon AF N55 body only, excellent condition, (uses more expensive batteries) - $30.00 + USPS

    Also have a very nice Nikon F2 body (all black), have both the DP-1 (makes it a Photomic), and DP-2 (makes it an F2AS) finders.

    Well the thing is, I think if I offered her $75 she would probably take it. She just has all this equipment and just has no need for it

    Try $60 first, if they say no, go up to $75.

    As a buyer, the trick to negotiation is to always get your first offer turned down. If they accept your first offer, chances are they would have gone lower.

    Good luck!

    You need to look at COMPLETED auctions when judging prices... None of that stuff will sell at those prices. Heck you can get an f100 for $179, and it's 100 times the camera as the n2020.

    There isn't much retail value to the stuff you've listed, I think $80 for everything would be fair.

    I didn't think there would be. I think I'll offer $50, then $60 then $75.
