    Hasselblad 501CM kit value?

    Hello everyone,

    I'm contemplating selling my hasselblad kit and was curious of its value.

    I've been searching the main used sites and also comparing brand new models and think I have a general idea but would be interested in what you guys think.

    Kit includes:

    501 (black) CM body
    80 mm 2.8/80 CFE
    A-12 (black) back

    Thanks,

    Mike

    I'd also be curious if anyone thinks that selling it would even be worth it given it would be costly to re-invest at a later date? Not to mention your hassy could last a lifetime.

    I bought a near-mint condition 501CM, WLF, 80CB, A12 back for £1100 from a shop with warranty. Not sure what they'd be worth elsewhere on the planet though and I don't know how much I'd be able to sell it myself. Just monitor a few ebay auctions and see how much they go for.

    Would it be worth selling? Depends. If I could sell if for £900 and then buy it again for £1100, that's £200 out of pocket. It would depend how much I needed the cash and whether I'd be looking to re-buy 6 months or 3-4 years later.

    Check KEH. They seem to set values for used stuff. Of course you can bet better deals on eBay but you might not be able to return it like you can with KEH.

    What does everyone think about 1,650.00 ?

    I'd grade the camera "Like New minus"

    I've attached some pictures. I bought this camera new so only one owner, glass is perfect and no blemishes on the outside body.

    Thanks for your input!

    If you're putting it up for sale, you should put an entry in the classifieds.

    I'd say it's too much.

    But that's just because i wouldn't pay that much for it. Maybe someone else will. Who knows.
    Difficult questions, the "how much is it worth" thingies.

    But indeed: one way to find out is to put if up in the classifieds. If someone is willing to pay what you are asking... you'll have your answer.
