    i've got some nikon equipment that im considering selling off as it's really not getting used much anymore, and just wanted to get a general idea of what the stuff is worth.

    1-Nikon D80
    1-Nikon 18-135 mm Lens
    1-Nikon 50 mm Prime
    2-Nikon SB600
    1-Vivitar 285HV
    1-Wireless Remote
    1-Gary Fong Light Dome
    2-Diffusers for 600 flashes
    3-Flash stands WITH umbrella holders
    3- White Umbrellas
    1-Silver Umbrella
    1-Softbox/Umbrella Hybrid
    1-Large Camera bag to hold all of the Camera Equipment

    Might be some other nik-naks, but like i said, just wondering what this might go for.

    This might be more appropriate for a marketplace thread.

    In general, Nikon non-digital equipment retains value well (>70% on lenses in great condition, easily). I'd suggest checking eBay or KEH for specific prices on each of the items you've listed.

    Yes is a good place to look but those prices are higher then you can get as a private party.

    The listed Nikon equipment might be worth as much as 70% of current new prices. The D80 is still in production so now it's value is high. Once it is replaced and is no longer current it's value will drop a bit.

    The vivitar goes for about $40 Umbrellas, stands, light dome and that sort of stuff is hard to sell.
