Hello,

I need to get rid of some A mount gear since I switched to E mount.
A99 and lenses.
Difficult to sell where I live.
I want to take the opportunity of a trip to NYC to sell this.
Is there a better place than BH or adorama ?

Yann

Adorama maybe best.
In Manhattan there is 42photo, he used to buy equipment but I haven't heard for years.
Focus Camera is in Brooklyn and buys used, via mail also.
For mail selling there's keh.com, not the best prices but the best service.
Also there are some new services, swappa.com and mpb.com - mpb is a European company recently in the US.
There is a difference between a shaky or out-of-focus photograph and a snapshot of clouds and fog banks. - Schrödinger

Just going by what I've read over the years 42photo is long since gone and has only an online store nowadays, one with a very shoddy reputation if you go by the amount of complaints they get.

Regret I have no experience of New York but I can vouch for MPB as I have swopped virtually all my A mount to E mount and then upgraded and refined my kit with them in the UK. I have nothing but praise for their service, communication and prices. They even upgraded the condition of my Zeiss Batis lenses and paid more than first quoted!

BTW, other than as a satisfied customer I have no connection with MPB.

Good luck with your mission.

I recently had estimates from the above-mentioned online companies. I was offered $100 for both an A700 with Sony grip and 7D with KM grip. Everything included with both as they came new including all original boxes etc. The $100 for both was pending inspection. I wound up selling the 7D for $200 on FB Marketplace and the A700 for $275 on Ebay. I was very hesitant to sell anything but lack of use (not a collector) and need for E mount lenses has prompted me to get rid of unnecessary equipment.
A700, Maxxum 7D,18-70kit,Minolta 28-85,35-70,70-210(Beercan)x2,75-300(BigBeercan)XE7,SRT102,Autocord.....A7iii, Maxxum 85mm 1.4

What lenses do you have for sale?
More Dyxumer, less photographer.

Hi,
keep in mind that this companies will offer you 50% of the market price. A bit more if you will use the credit for buying new stuff.
If you are in Guadaloupe, probably is better to use Facebook Market place, since you can ship "cheaply" to the Metropole via La Poste.

Thanks for the suggestion Pako but A mount gear sells like coffins. Anyway, the deal was done at Adorama's and I was happy they managed to find an open box A7IV even though this camera was back ordered everywhere in the USA at this time.

My friends at the Adorama Used Department are definitely quite nice. Who took care of you? Angel?

The receipt says Morris. Grey hair, definitely not a young guy.
A very nice person indeed. He took all the necessary time to analyse and evaluate the gear I was selling and then again to find an used A7iv that wasn't listed on their website.
The seller who showed me the A7iv was Mario.
I had a better experience at their used department than I had some years ago at the most famous camera gear shop in Manhattan.

I guess I have a kind of affective relationship with Adorama as this is the place where I bought my very first DSLR, the minolta 7D.
Eventually, this led me to dyxum.com
