ist DS value

I am thinking about selling my DS body to fund buying a K10D. What is the market value for it? It does not have any signs of wear and only has 2900 clicks.

I want to keep it. I just can't afford an upgrade without selling it. I am just weighing my options.

Keh sells out of them as fast as they get them for $235.00 and up. Ebay prices also reflect how good the demand is. The DS is wanted for it's viewfinder first, the rest after. I'd say you could do better on ebay with that condition and low usage.

Don't sell for less than $250

Great viewfinder and has TTL sensor. If you can't get that price, hold onto it.
