Default Where can I sell used cam gear?

Been trying to sell off some Lumix Lenses for weeks with no luck. Any advice on where I might be able to sell them on a used forum or something similar? Any sites out there that are regarded for great for sale areas for camera gear?

Everyone seems to like Craig's list for local and E-bay for national/international. You can sell on Amazon or DPReview.

But, you're not gonna' get top dollar for a 14-42 kit lens or a 14mm f/2.5, if that's what you're trying to sell. They're practically giving them away right now.

Most of my "ex" gear goes via ebay.
Make your ad stand out from the others with good pictures/lighting of your item,including front/rear caps,packaging,paperwork etc- and an accurate but honest assessment of your items- and keep a photographic record of your items serial numbers.
I wouldn't list with a hidden reserve (as this puts of bidders),but start the auction with your minimum accepted price- or start at 99p and watch the bidders numbers flood in... a risky strategy,but sometimes as more people are watching your 99p item you have more potential bidders in the run up to the auction end.

Have you tried fourthirdsphoto.com?

They have a pretty active buy/sell forum.

Take a look at KEH.com's Sell Your Gear link.

Thanks for the help fellas, I took a look at fourthirds' forums and it seemed pretty dead and the history for my lenses sales were really poor haha. Also tried KEH, but they wanted to give me $120 for the 14-42mm and the H014 both in A+ condition. BHphoto seems the best place for me, they offered me $174 for both and covered shipping with a prepaid label. I'll only have to put another $174 into the H-020 I am trying to buy.
