    Could you please give me some advice on a possible new camera deal.
    Do the likes of Jessops do part-ex deals, or would I be better off selling, and then purchasing cheaper on the net?

    I have a Fuji Finepix S7000, and also a Minolta Dynax 505si Super with 50mm lens, and a 70-210 lens plus carry bag and some bits and pieces.
    What sort of price should I expect for them in part-ex or straight sale?

    Thank you.

    John.

    Looking at ebay, £100 for the fuji and £50 for the minolta.

    You'd be better off selling them yourself and get a better deal using the queens picture, if you don't mind the hassle.

    A bit like a car really!

    One point though, your stuff is never worth as much as you think!

    Once you've got some readies try here for good prices.

    Hi, if your lenses are the Minolta AF mount they will work on the Sony A100 DSLR. If your 50mm is the "Minolta AF 50 F1.7" and the 70-210mm is the "Minolta AF 70-210 F4 (beercan)" ? They are both sought after lenses on Ebay and elsewhere. Infact, I would buy the 50mm from you if it is the AF 50 F1.7 and in good nick and at the right price :thumbsup:

    Edit: The Sony A100 with the 18-70mm kit lens is selling new for around £350.00, with your two lenses you would have a good kit assuming they are the compatible type.

    I'll have to unpack them and check which ones they are.

    Cheers guys.

    I wouldn't be in too much of a rush to unload the Fuji, it's a fine camera. Unless you've identified a particular weakness then it's quite capable of taking you a long way down the learning curve.
