645N + lenses estimate

Hey all, the studio I work in just found our old medium format gear tucked away in our storage area and we're thinking about selling it. I have a bit of an idea of what it could go for, but was hoping to get a little more exact. All of them are in clean, excellent condition and don't even look used. Any help with what these could go for?

645N
2 x 120 film backs

FA 45mm f/2.8
FA 75mm f/2.8
A 120mm f/4 macro

I've seen Pentax 645n (emphasis on the N) bodies (without insert) that sell for between four hundred to six hundred; that would be rated at an 8.5 to absolute near mint - or anything but out of the box so to state. 750 for barely out of the box.

Take a look at the listings at KEH. Those will give you a good idea of the max value.

The 120 is worth far more than that, you've been had.

i think the OP is over rating the value of the FA75. In the Uk they can be got brand new in box unused for 499 so $465 is a little on the high side in my view
