Hi

I've just got myself a GH3 :D and I was just wondering what people here think I might get for my GH2 with 14-140 lens, Andrew's excellent books, the CallBox video guides and Unoffical Quintessential guide on ebay?

They went for sale on black friday with a kit lens for $499 new! Wish I had bought one then...

I assume you can probably get close to that

Check eBay completed listings. I tried to get one for cheap, it was impossible :) You should be able to get a good price. Sell the body and lens separately if you want to get the most out of it.

The 14-42 lens costs $50-100 and the 14-140 about $500-600, new.

 

A second hand GH2 should, fetch you about $200.

 

Though, I think, you should keep the 14-140 lens. Its not fast (rather, its quite slow). But, it has a superb range (28mm-280mm equivalent). And, its a pretty good quality lens.

Thanks for all the advice. I'm in the UK, so converting the prices I should hopefully be getting about £125 for the camera and between 300 and 375 for the lens.

I'd say the European second hand price on the house would be double that...??? The GH1 goes for more than £ 125...

GH2 in the Uk goes for 400 - 450 pounds for the body only on ebay

 

you will get 80 pounds for the lens

 

put it on 'buy it now ' and not an auction
