I go by the Nikon site as well as Adorama which is a popular and trustworthy store. Other places may sell for less but there is probably a reason, gray market etc..

If I may offer some advice- nobody is going to pay what you are asking for you equipment.

Your equipment is used, yet your asking prices are only $50 less than what somebody can purchase one new- with full packaging, documentation, full manufacturer's warranty, with zero actuations, and not a mark, smudge, fingerprint, etc. anywhere.

Your best bet is to check the POTN and FM (Fred Miranda) forums to get a better idea of what these items are selling for, used.

I'm not in a rush to sell. Thanks though.

^^What he said. Like I mentioned before, Adorama and other reputable places are selling this same equipment for the same price NEW plus you get all the goodies like extra battery, carry case, etc. that you aren't including. Not to mention a warranty and a % reward to purchase add'l accessories after it ships.

The longer you hold onto your gear the less it will be worth. The 5300 is already out so it will only be a few months until you see the 5200 discounted even further.

(Please don't take this as being rude). I do not need your advice guys. If I want to try to sell my stuff for a certain price then I can try haha. The main thing keeping me from selling them at this point at the price I want could very well be your posts saying that I'm asking too much. You might consider messaging the person next time instead of posting in their thread.

If someone wants to buy the stuff from me for my asking price then there we go. If my stuff doesn't sell because no-one wants to pay the price I'm asking then there we go. I don't need you guys deterring potential buyers with your posts.

If my items do not sell then that is my problem not yours.

Just for reference, adorama price for D5200 body new is $650. I'm asking $600 for a barely used one.

They sell D5200 used bodies for about $550. How do you know how much those used ones have been used? You know that there are such things as shutter life with cameras right? You could be buying a used camera from them that is almost used up it's shutter life.

Also all the accessories that came in the box will be included with the body. My mistake for not including that in the OP. You could have messaged me about that though.

Once again I did not mean for any of this to sound rude. Thank you

Not rude at all- but rest assured it's not us deterring potential buyers, it is the pricing you have listed (evidenced by the constant bumping, and no selling). It's a good thing you're not in a hurry to sell. GLWS.

What I'm saying is that your posts in my thread aren't helping. If you are a thoughtful person (and have the need for my stuff to sell asap) then you should message the thread owner next time

My price is a good price to save money on these parts with rest assured that they haven't been used for a long time and near the end of their life (like other used parts could very easily be).

What I'm saying is that if I were shopping for something, and came across something I might be interested in, I would expect and appreciate it if fellow forum members gave me a heads-up indicating that the pricing was out of line, and that a better deal could be sourced elsewhere.

Well then you did that but failed to inform them that if they buy used they may not know how much or how long that equipment has been used for. They are running that risk for about $50. Either way it seems you have done what you came here to do so we can stop discussing it

I've owned numerous pro and consumer bodies over the years. I've had shutters go at 1,100 actuations, and others still going strong at 400,000. A lightly used body doesn't mean it's going to last longer.

Warranties are not transferable on used bodies, and the shutter on yours could go with the next frame that you take. For that reason, 99.9% of users will opt to spend the extra $50 to buy a new body with a warranty.

There needs to be more incentive to purchase such a high dollar value electronic item used, as they can fail at any time. It's not like buying a used couch, bicycle, or anything that has end-user serviceable parts.

I'm not trying to be harsh, but just hoping to reset your expectations with regard to fair used prices. Naturally, you're free to ask what you want, but the items are only worth what someone is willing to pay.

And if someone is willing to pay my asking price why are you trying to ruin that? It's not like I'm asking for it at a higher price than brand new or even at the same cost as brand new. It is discounted because it is used.

^Same here.

If you really want to sell this I would consider coming up with a package price since the kit lenses you have probably aren't going to sell on their own.
