Selling Hasselblad CF lenses where?

Postby vanstar on Wed May 23, 2007 6:25 pm

Hi, have had the 50, 120 macro and 180mm for consignment sale at Sydney Foto Riesel for some months now but no takers.
Can anyone suggest other stores/ways, other than ebay?
Sorry if this post is a little off topic.
Thanks

Whilst they will still bring a reasonable price....you should have sold them 3 years ago. I recently saw a near mint 500C with a 50mm, 80mm 150mm and 250mm lens and accessories go for $6000. 20 years ago that bundle would easily fetch $21000!

Mind if I ask why not Ebay? May not be the safest place to buy, but when you're selling you have nothing to worry about.

Not exactly true, but the risks are different.
For example, if you're paid with a credit card (e.g. via PayPal) and then ship the item, it's possible for the credit card owner to later dispute the transaction and you're left with no money and no item.
Certainly direct-deposit payments don't have this problem, but they're only available domestically...

Vanstar, I can only suggest phoning other dealers and asking them about your options. It may be that these just aren't moving very fast...

I'd talk to Camera Exchange in Melbourne (even if you don't necessarily want to send the cameras to Melbourne for consignment sale, they should be able to give you some useful commentary).

It's up to the seller to decide what type of payments you accept, if you don't want to accept credit card then don't.
For example, whenever I sell something, I don't accept paypal, never had a problem.

Ebay, just seem such as hassel (bad pun).

Also, have no seller history with them.
Cheers,

Have you tried European Cameras in Drummoyne? I believe they sell items on commission for vendors. I have no experience with them.

Thanks Patrick will give it all longer, then pull the lenses from F.R, if needed.
