Hi I am completely new to the digital slr camera. My question is one of my friends friend is selling a Sony A300 with several lenses and I want to know what I should offer her for it. (all are clean and have no have, fungus or scratching on the lenses) Also I probaly wont keep all the lenses - so which ones should I keep?
I would be getting The Sony A300 (orginal box and warrenty)
and the following lenses which all come in a heavy aluimin case:
-The Sony Lens that originally came on the camera - Sony 3.5-5.6/18-70

-Quantaray - MX AF 1:4-5.6 F=70-210MM
-Minolta Maxxum AF 135mm 1:2.8(32) HOYA 55mm SKYLIGHT (1B)
-Sigma Zoom AF-E 1:3.5-4.5 f=28-70mm
-Minolta AF Lens f=100-200mm (around rim 0 Tiffen Cir Polarozer 49mm)
- Minolta AF Zoom 35-80mm 1:4(22)-5.6 49mm (front -0.38m/1.3ft. macro
-Sigma AF Tele 1:5.6 f=400mm with Tiffen 72mm UV Protector - some wear on outside but nothing major)

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.
