I have a complete set of Canon equipment in excellent shape that I am thinking of selling. The items are:

1 Canon 5D Mrk II (about three years old), with battery grip, like new

1 Canon 5D Mrk III (about two years old), with battery grip, like new

1 28-135mm Canon EF zoom, 1 85mm f1.8 Canon EF lens, 1 Canon 70-300mm f4.5-5.6 EF zoom lens, 1 21-40mm EF wide angle zoom lens, 1 Canon 100mm f2 EF macro lens, 1 sigma 500mm lens, 1 Canon 50mm f1.8 EF lens, all like new.

2 Canon EX580 flash units, like new

Could you give me an estimate of the total trade-in value of these items?

Thank you.
