    Is it common for items on sale to trend at very different prices...
    I remember last year I wanted a 35mm 1.8g they averaged for £100 to £120 I managed to get one for £90 and was very happy...
    Now there seems to be no sub £130 35mm 1.8 lenses on selling pages etc..

    I also remember the 85mm 1.8g ranging from £200-250 now I want one... these are all £300-£350 do you guys often notice trends on lenses which massively increase or decrease?
    I can only assume an increase in price on mbp etc increases sale prices on Facebook, gumtree and classified?

    I would imagine it is due to Nikon increasing all their prices so the second hand market will follow that trend too

    Yes Nikon increased new prices by approx. 30% 2-3 years ago and then another 20% a year or 2 later.
    Other camera companies applies similar increases.

    You can see the average price was over £180 for first half of this year but has dropped since

    A few years ago the second hand market was dictated by completed prices on e.bay , these days it tends to be by what m.p.b are either offering or selling for . Really hard to put rhyme or reason to it .
    The rise of good mirrorless bodies has pushed up the price of legacy lenses to but the current trend towards full frame mirrorless is leading to a lot of low priced starter kits to appear fairly cheaply , Nikon’s one new body a month plan of a few years ago is not helping either as there now flooding the low end of the market with tatty used bodies and kit lenses .
    BTW the cheapest used website I have found is camera jungle .good prices and good service

    Most are now based on what MPB are offering, sold a few things recently and didn't make much more than their initial quote. Just a load of hassle of people wanting mint, low shutter count items for 50p!

    That graph is from Camera Price Buster. It refers to prices of new lenses, and their data include most of the major UK retailers but not black market retailers.
