    I'm gonna put my old Minolta gear on Craigslist. What do you think I should ask for it?

    Minolta XG-M body w/motordrive (5 fps iirc)

    Lenses:
    Minolta 50mm f/1.7
    Minolta Rokkar –X 24mm f/2.4
    Minolta Rokkar-QD 135mm f/3.5
    Vivitar 400mm f/5.6 (in like new condition)

    It's been sitting in my closet for over 20 years but I took the batteries out. The body was recently resealed and everything works fine.

    it takes up space and I'd rather see someone get some use out of it.

    If you can...post a flyer up at a college.

    Shit will be gone so fast. My friend had some Minolta's from the 70's he used for class. Had that shit sold the day he put it up for sale.

    Too much work. That's what Craiglist is for. I'm just trying to get an idea on it's worth. I'm thinking $150 for everything and I'll throw in some filters, including a CP.

    screw you, ill drive to his house and pick it up! :p

    but seriously, the best way to see what it is worth is to do an advanced search on ebay for completed listings.

    how much do you want for it all, realistically?

    if i'm buying a D300 I probably shouldn't buy anything else, but just curious :eek3: i'd love to mess around with this :bigok:

    I was thinking $150 for everything but that may be a bit low. Let me check some ebay prices.

    EDIT: After checking, seems like $150 would be a fair price for everything.

    I used to know what that kind of shit was worth, but these days I'm never sure. I'd bet in the $100-200 range so asking $150 seems reasonable.
