    We have recently been left a Leica R3 camera in a will with
    Leitz Canada Sumicron 1:2/50 lens
    +
    Leitz Wetzlar Elmarit R 1:2.8/35 lens
    +
    Starblitz 3300 DTS Twin flash
    +
    lens hoods,Weston exposure meter,
    instruction books etc.

    We dont really need another camera and would like to sell it on E Bay or somewhere but have no idea what it is realistically worth.Is it better to sell as a complete lot or seperate items.
    Hope someone can help.

    In my opinion these items are worth more than what you would ever get for them. If I was you I would be inclined to keep them till they had more 'collector' value.

    I think you will get more if you sell them separately.
    I sold a Canon EOS RT with 5 lenses and a Metz flashgun earlier in the year on eBay and you should have seen the scramble for the lenses.....I made a lot more than if I had sold it as a complete outfit.

    BTW I suppose this may be common knowledge to seasoned eBayers but I always schedule the finish time to end on a Sunday evening around 7pm-9pm.
    Good luck.
