    Currently thinking if I should sell my 9 month old Canon EOS 300D as I don't use it. Just wondered how much these things are worth secondhand?

    Thanks,

    Steve

    It's in mint condition and has had hardly any use. I've never taken it out of the house! It will include an 18-55mm lens and 256Mb compact flash card.

    Regards,

    Steve

    I had a conversation in Jessops a while back that went something like this:

    Me: I have a Canon D30 here, what would you give me for it?
    Jessops bloke: Right, lets see... £150.
    Me: Why so little?
    Jessops bloke: Because that's all they're worth these days.
    Me: But you have one there on that shelf behind you selling at nearly £600.
    Jessops bloke: ...next please.



    Superb customer service as always.

    Well.....I popped into our favorite store today......just passing.. :D

    PX value of my 300D body only against a 20D....5D or even 1D Mk2N.....£80

    The guy suggested I might get more for it on Ebay...and would I like a demo of a 20D.... :rotfl: :rotfl:

    Think they would put it straight up for around £300 secondhand?

    GREEDY GREEDY....they won't get my custom anymore.. ;)

    Steve,

    Are you still thinking of selling or am I too late?

    Thanks for all the replies.

    Witters,

    I am still thinking of selling but haven't got around to advertising it yet.

    Regards,

    Steve

    OK.

    It's just that I have a friend who is looking for one at the moment.
