It depends on the condition, and how much is it worth to him. The range could be from $30 for the average condition samples, or up to $100 (or more, if sentimental value warrants it) for mint examples with original box. Functionally the camera is very outdated, but in right hands the images it produces withstand 100% pixel level view with almost DSLR quality, and at ISO400 and bellow the clarity and sharpness rival most similar sized cameras today, if not better when viewed 100%. It is also well made, unlike Fuji's modern equivalent XF1 which has about 50% chance of surviving first year without developing some variant of lens related malfunction.
