Is there a place I can find current market pricing for used camera 's and equipment?
I have a Canon Rebel with a Tokico (sp?) lens I am looking to get rid of, but I can't find a good way to price it.
Thanks guys! And it will go up here first ;)

I just bought a second hand 20D for $355... so your chances are $300 if you are lucky.

Thanks, I bought the other lens used, but it has been well kept in case since then and I have the original Canon 18-55 mm lens too.
Sorry, the other lens is a Konica (Tokico are shocks for my car I think) and is a 24-200mm I am pretty sure. Heavy as hell, but great takes great shots and offers more than the stock canon lens.
My canon lens itself had some soldering come loose, but I was able to open it up and solder it back (rather than sending it to canon, who charges $200 bucks for this the price of a new lens itself).
I also have a 512 card to go with.
I will not lie, I have been tough on the camera itself, but I've now had it for close to five years. I think the base originally cost me $1200...
I will post pics up and see if it gets bought on here rather than on craigslist.
It has been a great beginner camera, but I feel I am ready to move onto something newer. I might get a 30D

The Tokina 24-200 is a pretty decent lens. The 24 on the wide end makes it slightly more useful to the FOV eating digital cameras of today, and the build quality is pretty solid. It's not super in demand, though, and it's often just not wide enough to be the all-in-one lens that it was originally designed to be. Still, a quick look tells me if it's in good condition, you should be able to get at least $100 for it. $200? That's a real lucky stretch there if you can get it. It's hard to sell the old film superzooms in today's era of 18-200 and 18-250...

I was saying, thats what Canon was going to charge me to repair my canon stock lens. I spent five minutes with it, small screwdrivers, and a soldering gun and it was back to normal.
I paid $200 for my Konica lens used, so if I could get a $100 out of it I would be happy.
I will admit that sometimes the Tokina is not enough wide angle. I usually use it to shoot medium to longer range shots.

Are you sure it's Konica and not Tokina? Konica is a pretty decent camera maker, but I don't think they made anything for Canon EF... and I'm pretty certain they didn't make a 24-200 superzoom...

In any case, on ebay, I saw 3 recently closed auctions... 2 went above 140 while 1 went at 80 (and I think that was so low because it was listed in the wrong section) so I think you'll be okay...

I keep forgetting to look... See I thought it was was Tokico too, then realized those are the shocks on my car and so I assumed Konica... In any case, I will probably list it here first and see if a novice would be interested. Then it will go on craigslist, I would take it to Precision, but I would probably get gouged there. I might stop by anyways and see what they have for sale. O would not mind going used again since I have had such good luck with their used stuff before.
