Over the new year I had a thought of my equipment, as a result I sold the D2h which I hardly used. I bought used so don't expect to lose much. I'm in New Zealand I then had a look at a no. of the other lenses like kits or multi travel zooms become half price when they are used including the 2nd version of the 18-200. The pricey nano zooms were about 20% less. Fortunately I got my 18-70 kit used with a 2nd D70 kept the lens sold the camera might have broke even. So I had a thought - like how new cars driven out of the showroom lose quite a bit of value instantly, is buying used photography equipment good way if we don't need equipment urgently? The only lenses that didn't make much sense to buy used were cheap and good stuff like the 50mm or 35mm. I know that dSLRs bodies are huge bargain if they are 6yrs old, what about if they are 2yr old and still the current model or if they are 3 or a bit more when they are just been replaced with a newer one plus some slack time for the prices to stabilise after the annoucement?
