Selling my XL2..Any Pointers

I am selling my year old Xl2 along with my 4 month old HV20 to get an HVX200.

I am asking 3100 for the XL2 which comes with a 4 year MACK warrenty with 3 years left on it, a manfrotto tripod, and a KATA case...am i asking too much?

i paid almost 5k for all of this one year ago, i dont want to loose alot of money on selling this.

Mike

Hi Michael,

You'll be far better selling the XL-2 alone. The more "stuff" you include, the harder it will be to find a buyer. Some will have other ideas on cases - even more aren't interested in tripods. When you find a buyer interested in the XL-2, then be ready to make a package deal, but do not push it - in time you can always find buyers for the remaining gear.

As far as the market price is concerned:

Good luck, Michael

You'll be much better off in the long run by selling these items separately. Also, your XL2 should have paid for itself by now, so any amount you make on the sale (even if it's just 50% of your original purchase price) will be a profit, not a loss.
