Do you think trading a Panasonic 20mm to a 25mm + 200 dollars is a good deal?

It might be worth having a look at the completed listings on ebay or sites like Fred Miranda to try and get an idea of the second hand values of both lenses - the new lenses are selling for about a $150 difference ($350 versus $500 on B&H), but some lenses will hold value better second hand.

The other thought is of course that while it may not be the greatest deal going, but sucking up the extra loss may be better overall as it means you can do one deal and be done with the situation - no wait for a genuine buyer to appear advertising locally between the time wasters and lowballers, no dealing with ebay and paypal fee's selling online or any of the other issues selling.

Especially if you can knock down the difference a bit, sucking up a little extra cost over the $150 difference may not be that daft an idea.
