    need help regarding 400D and sigma lens

    by ash2686 » Thu Jan 10, 2013 4:53 pm

    hi

    im in need of some help as i am totally clueless.

    ive always been interested in photography but never went further then admiring the pics others take when they know what they are doing.

    i have an acquaintance thinking of selling their 400D with a sigma 10-20mm lens (1:4-5.6) and UV filter.

    what would the price range be for this camera, and also the lens? not having any knowledge, i dont want to get ripped off

    any input regarding this camera/lens or the pricing would be great

    thanks

    Look them up on eBay to get some idea of what people are paying for them. What sort of condition are they in?

    There are none up for sale right now on eBay but a good rule of thumb is depreciate the item by 35% first year and then 40% each following year of "second handness" from the purchase price at new. This take into account the fact that technology ages quickly and becomes (can become) redundant in less than 5 years.
    Hope this helps.
