If you sell on ebay, here's some advice.
In reply to CampyOne, Nov 9, 2011

It isn't that I've sold lots on Ebay, but I've sold several cameras and this is undoubtedly the best approach.

DO NOT use buy it now and put a price which is top of the range. It won't sell for that, unless you're very lucky.

Have no reserve and start off with a modest opening bid and a week's bidding period.
People become interested and usually you will get a bidding war.

I sold an old camera system (Contax G) more than a year ago and would've been happy with 1000 pounds sterling. I started with a bid of, I think 400. I actually got 2000.

I've repeatedly had this experience. I similarly got, I think 800 stg for a 1Ds body around the same time (It was in perfect nick).

End of tip.
