I'm about to sell my Canon 430EX and trying to determine a fair price for it. Looking at Amazon, it seems like the 430EX is more expensive than the 430EX II. I'm a bit confused. Any ideas why this might be?
This often happens with discontinued products — flashes, cameras, snacks, cleaning supplies — on Amazon. All the vendors offering a reasonable price sell out, and then you're left with a handful with high (sometimes crazily high) prices. This can just happen naturally when some seller legitimately had a higher asking price, or somewhat more calculatedly when someone is trying to cash in on the reaming stock of a popular product. And sometimes I think it is shady vendors just trying to catch unobservant buyers with outrageous prices because there's no penalty for trying — buyer beware and all that.
