What’s Up with Used Gear Info Requests?

I spent a good part of Tuesday and Wednesday catching up on Used Gear-related e-mails. I think that I am pretty much caught up now. If I missed yours, please shoot me an e-mail reminding me of what I missed, and do include a copy of your original e-mail.

Selling Your Used Gear Through BIRDS AS ART

Selling your used (or like-new) photo gear through the BAA Blog or via a BAA Online Bulletin is a great idea. We charge only a 5% commission. One of the more popular used gear for sale sites charges a minimum of 20%. Plus assorted fees! Yikes. The minimum item price here is $500 (or less for a $25 fee). If you are interested please e-mail with the words Items for Sale Info Request cut and pasted into the Subject line :). Stuff that is priced fairly–I offer free pricing advice, usually sells in no time flat. In the past few months, we have sold just about everything in sight. Do know that prices on some items like the EOS-1D Mark IV, the old Canon 500mm, the EOS-7D, and the original 400mm IS DO lens have been dropping steadily. You can see all current listings by clicking here or by clicking on the Used Photo Gear tab on the yellow-orange tab on the right side of the menu bar above.

Douglas Bolt sold his Tamron SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di VC USD Zoom lens for Canon in like-new condition for $699, Diane Miller sold her 300mm f/2.8L IS lens, the old three, for $2899, and Roberta Olenick sold her Canon EOS-1D Mark IV camera body in excellent condition for $1279 USD, all within the last week.

And I just learned minutes ago that the sale of IPT veteran Brent Bridges’ 300mm f/2.8L IS lens for $4599 is pending.

This is the world’s best lens for a trip to Africa. It kills also in the Galapagos and in South Georgia, the Falklands, and Antarctica. And I use mine a lot at Bosque and other dusty places where the built-in TC helps to keep your sensor clean. The lens sells new at B&H right now for $10,999. You can save $2004 by grabbing Phil’s lens. artie

This lens sells new for $9,999 so Phil’s is priced to sell and save you $2,199. If you do sports or large mammals this is the lens for you. I do know of a few competent photographers who do great on birds with this lens; it kills with either the 1.4X or the 2X III TC. artie

I owned and loved this lightweight version of the 70-200mm for several years. It is a downright tiny lens. I used it both for flight and tame birds. As an L lens, it is of course very sharp.
