Hi Mark,

I have done a couple of small trade-ins with London Camera Exchange at their retail shops. Not a great return but "better than nothing". LCE may not be very handy for you in Scotland. Ffordes will by kit, but I have only ever bought from them so far. There are other internet traders who offer part exchanges (e.g. UK Digital Cameras) but no experience of them. I wouldn't expect a great deal for basic kit.

Let us know how you get on if you do find a deal somewhere.
Nex 5, Nex 6 (IR), A7M2, A99 and a bunch of lenses.

Ffordes don't do trade ins but sell on commission for you - a fair deal, but competing with far too much other kit.

Huge step up from the A230, no doubt. I've been using my A77 again. No doubt about its abilities.
