Someone Help! How much is my Pentax Worth?

I have a Pentax Film ZX-10 Camera with a Sigma Zoom 28-80mm Macro Lens. Also have a Sigma Zoom 70-210MM lens. I have no clue what it is worth. Can someone please help me? I need to sell this ASAP but want to be realistic on the price.

If the Sigma 70-210 is a f3.5-4.5 AF model with 1:2 macro, I bought one on ebay a few months ago for $35. The closing Ritz Camera stores had piles of the Sigma 28-80 macro so I imagine the market for them is pretty depressed. Keh.com has a couple for sale at $19 and $33 for the version II. They even have the 70-210mm at $79.

Keh is also selling the ZX-10 for $40-60. Maybe the total package would get $100-150 based on these prices? I personally would be surprised if you got $75 for the package however.

Thank you
Russell

That combo on ebay may fetch $50-80 on ebay,a bit higher as a local Craigslist sale ($20 more?) but on Craigs it may not sell soon. On ebay you'd probably do best selling the big zoom seperate. It might get $50 by itself. Ive got PZ 10/SF 10 body + midrange Pentax zoon for $25-40,picking off "between the cracks" bargains",but if you CONFIRM all works,do good pics, you can do better. Start the Body + short zoom at $40 and the big zoom at 40 and see if there's action. Mostly...an ebay auction prices itself.

I did a "just in case" bid on an MX yesterday at just $25. That MX ultimately sold at about $80

A difference......There's folks LOOKING for an MX or a KX or a PZ1.....nobody really is looking for a ZX10. Same with zooms. I had to try several times to get an SP 60-300 Tamron, but there's " No Name" lenses that can be had at $8 + ship.

A cheap thing for a student would be to pick up one of the branded Sears bodies with whatever lenses come along. Most Sears cameras are Ricoh or Chinon...and at half price. Budget primes are often pretty decent.
