Several notes:

Please, check the information on How to read prices.

You should not expect to sell or buy for exactly the specified price.

Prices here are intended to give a ballpark estimate (rather than a precise amount), to provide an idea of the approximate camera value.

This service is provided for informational purposes only. It is not commercial, we don't buy or sell anything. This site is not affiliated with any camera reseller or auction house.

The in-stores search/comparison tool (Adorama, B&H, Collectible Cameras, Collector Detector, Fedka KEH, Leica Shop, Pacific Rim, SHphoto) was created for your convenience to quickly glance through the current listings.
