Shops which can buy my Camera lenses?

I'm planning to sell my Nikon lenses.
Are there any shops in Zurich who buy the second hand lenses?

Cheers,

Soheb

Hi Soheb

If you purchase your new lenses through ch-foto.com, you may place
your old ones in the Used Market area. It is a private sale, not through
ch-foto.com. Simply create a PDF for each item you wish to sell with
photos, details and contact information and I will place it in the webshop
ch-foto.com.

ch-foto.com does not purchase used equipment, sorry.

Regarding your new lenses, send me (only per e-mail) your wish list and
I will reply with my offer. I have sold a number of photographic
equipment pieces to EF members, always a pleasure to help out.

Again, wish list ONLY per e-mail, not PMs.

I saw at least 1 in Rennweg in Zurich (near the Bally shop).
There are many also on the other side of the HB.
Walk around, you will see.

BTW, which lenses are you selling and how much?

Re: Shops which can buy my Camera lenses?

FotoPro trade in second hand lenses, they have a shop in ShopVille in the main station. An EFer has stated that FotoPro is quite expensive, I don't know if they make you a good deal. Chances are that many other photo shops are interested in your lenses, you can find camera shops here.

Re: Shops which can buy my Camera lenses?

You can of course also try and sell the lenses here on the Forum (I am sure there is interest) and otherwise, if you feel like putting it up for auction, go the ebay.ch route...but I would rather suggest (if you go auction route) to use ricardo.ch. you can then put in a minimum price that you want (pay a small fee like 5chf or something silly), and at least see if you get what you want for it. Well, I hope that you find a way to sell it...there are many ways

Yes, put your items up here in EF... maybe they will go quick, maybe not. If
not then go with the Ricardo.ch route. Cost to sell is not much.

Please, DO NOT USE EBAY or accept PAYPAL payments! Here is my reason.

Re: Shops which can buy my Camera lenses?

Thanks guys for your replies!

I actually do have a separate thread here for the sale advert, chezk it out if interested
http://www.englishforum.ch/sale-want...nses-sale.html

I thought I would rather sell the lenses in person rather than putting on a bidding website (too much hassle IMHO, maybe coz Ive never done that).

Re: Shops which can buy my Camera lenses?

Fotopro Rennweg, is the best place as a shop that I know of in Zurich for second-hand anything. They have a huge stock of second-hand gear. However, are you buying new Nikon stuff? They are also Leica, Nikon, Canon, Pentax etc dealers. Friendly shop, have dealt with them many times for Pentax gear.

Shop details:-
FotoPro Ganz AG
Rennweg 26
8001 Zürich
Tel. 01 212 63 03
Fax 01 482 63 80
www.fotopro.ch
rennweg@fotopro.ch
