    If you really want to make maximum amount from your gear, do not sell them as a kit. List them separately and you will get more money. It might take longer to though.

    Unless of course you're a recent college grad, hoping to acquire photographic perfection...

    I agree that you should sell it separately on eBay, but sell it all at the same time. Make a point to mention your other gear for sale in each auction and offer combined shipping. Plus, I strongly recommend being open to shipping internationally. I just sold three photo-related things on eBay for above average prices; 2 are going to Hong Kong and 1 for Canada.

    If you are selling separately make sure that the auctions end in the right order. Ie camera body first then back, finder, lenses...
    Now someone that would like to buy a body and a lens can bid on both. If I loose the bid on the body I can retract the bid on the lens. If the auction on the lens ends before the body I will not bid on either as I might be afraid of being stranded with only a lens.

    If you do decide to sell it separately, do not split items that originally were a kit.
    A body, for instance, must be sold together with a focusing screen, finder (folding waist level finder), and wind knob/crank. A magazine complete, and together with the slide.

    Retracting a bid on eBay is hard, if not impossible. So that right order thing may not matter much.

    Retracting a bid (while auction is in progress) is easy. Too easy.

    Yeah, but if you've got extra magazines, lenses, etc., sell those separately in case someone might not need a complete "starter-kit". Then you are catering to both the person who wants a whole outfit and can bid on your different auctions, plus the person who just needs one thing, like a lens, or a body.

    It's only miserable if you are trying to sell. If prices were truly miserable I would already have one to call my own. Though I have to admit, I have seen a few go for prices that were temptingly close to what I would be willing to pay. It seems like the lenses still go for good money, though.
