Question for the camera folks...

Hey - I know, I'm seldom on DT anymore ... Since Annie died, and I am Doberless, it is very painful. But I know that some of you are very photo/camera-savvy, and I need opinions.

I have a Canon EF 100-400mm F/4.5-5.6 L IS ultrasonic USM colorphoto Zoom lens that I want to sell, and I'm wondering where the best place to sell it might be.

I'm not super experienced with ebay, or craigslist, and don't know if those are the best options, or if there's a secret site with a secret handshake and password for those who deserve good equipment?

I appreciate your feedback. Happy New year, and thanks!! Lois

There are several camera sales groups on Facebook. Or, you could see about selling it to a place like B&H or Adorama, or a local camera shop, if there is one in your area. Personally, that would be what I would do.

If you do decide to use craigslist or eBay, do some research as to what the value is. For eBay, either sell if as "buy it now" or else set a reserve for at least half to three-quarters of the going price if you want to sell it as an auction.

PS: I know we are FB friends, but I do miss seeing you here.

You guys!!! Thank you!! That really makes me feel good - and maybe I'll come back in a while, because I also miss being here sometimes. Life's been sort of a bear, and (like a bear?) I tend to be a bit hermit-like and hibernate when I don't know what else to do. (And I have to be careful how much I type, because my stupid, injured hands get crazy angry if I over-do it. grrr)
Hugs and love!!

Here are two FB groups to buy/sell camera gear:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/240869802650618/

https://www.facebook.com/groups/310486042339497/

I tried selling 2 lenses on EBay; they were my first items ever listed and I got inundated with Nigerian scammers who "bought" the items within minutes of being listed. Maybe I had a setting wrong, I thought I had it on paypal only, no outside the US sales, buy now only. It got so bad I ended up pulling both lenses off the site.

Thanks - I'll look on those pages. I'm also kind of leery of ebay (and even paypal) - and those Nigerian and other scammers who respond to ebay, craigslist and other listing sites are infuriating... I usually report them as scammers, and delete them - but I hate that, at first, your hopes get elevated, thinking it might be a real offer. I try to be as careful as possible!
