A Lens Price

Hi All,

I am interested to know how much is the market price for A35/2.8, A20/2.8 and A100/2.8. Because I am planning to sell there three lens. Would you guys mind to give me any advise? Many thanks! The A20 and A100 is very good condition on the body and lens. The A35 body condition is ok and the lens is good.

I'm guessing the 20 might even sell for 600 - 700

A flawless copy of a FA 20mm was just up for sale (sold) at my local camera shop for $399CAD. I don't know if the prices are similar but the AF versions usually go for more....

Good luck with your sale!

You could check eBay completed listings, but remember that the selling prices there include eBay fees that PF doesn't have.

I saw an A20 go for over $500 recently on eBay.

If I offer $850 for these 3 lens, what do you guys think? Reasonable?

Hardest to find among these lenses is the A20/2.8.
850 might be a bit too high for me.
Good luck.

A 35mm f/2.8

Hello Adamyau,
I paid US $140.00 about a year ago for the A 35mm f/2.8, from a Forum member. It is in very good condition, body is unmarked, glass is clean and clear. Slight dust inside, like most older lenses.
I've seen this lens go for somewhat more on eBay.
