The A-300 model has been around for several years. None of the lenses are anything at all to start singing tunes, From my point of view this is a make an offer situation at best. Your friend would have a hard time selling this combination on E-Bay, so you are doing her a favor.

I would offer an opening bid of $(US)275.00 and see where the bid goes from there.Don't pay anything more than you are comfortable with, as this will be a hard to re-market collection.
