    I want to give Sony a try, so any of the newer A7/A9-series bodies would be of interest.

    Also, having bought a Tamron 150-600 recently I'm keen to try a big prime (400 2.8 or 4.0, 500 4.0, 300-800mm etc.)

    To quote talk photography

    "A7III ishard to price it since its so new but a lot of people here managed to pick one up new for £1700. So slightly under that figure would turn heads I think (eg: £1500-1600?). does it come with any (extended) warranty? receipt?
    MC-11 - £130-ish give or take £10-20. Depending on how quickly you want to sell.
    Sony 50mm/1.8 recently one sold for £135 on here"

    And they the other 2 you priced yourself at 500 and 700

    The advice you have was as if you were selling on talk photography. There was a 1 off Wilkinson camera deal that you could get the camera for £1700 pre order when the photography show was on. The camera sells for £2,000 and is still sold out so it's worth much more than £1,600.

    But even based on that and your own views (and thry all seem very low) then

    A7iii £1,600
    MC11 £130
    50mm £135
    20mm £500
    85mm £700
    Grip £50

    Total £3,115 (just pointing out that you've take your own valuations and feedback and undercut them! And the originals were fairly low to start with)

    The best I could do would be £3150 without the grip. (I can send that back under amazon 30 Day thing and get the £110 back).
