Default Re-sell 828 or return?

I ordered an 828 for myself in December, and my husband inadvertantly gave me one for Christmas. Does anyone know if it would be worth trying to resell the extra camera on E-Bay (I would have to re-coup the fees), or if I would be better off just returning thwe camera to Sony.

Do the stores have adequate supplies now? It is an incredible camera!

Default The choices

Personally, I'd return it. The reseller will probably be delighted to have it.

Reportedly, Sony has suspended shipments of further F828's. If true, few resellers would have any at the moment. This also means that an unopened F828 might fetch a handsome price on eBay.

The problem with the eBay route is that high-end digital cameras are a category rife with fraud (on both sides). If you offer it, you can expect to get inquiries from Indonesia, Romania and other locales, all of which are using using stolen credit card numbers.

"reportedly" suspended.

It's just one of any number of often conflicting
reports about Sony's ambivalent attitude on
this camera.

There may be no suspension.
We may just be between production runs.
Or there may be an actual ship-hold.

In any case, new-in-box F828s aren't very easy
to find just now. B&H was "out of stock" yesterday,
but are now showing "in stock".
