    Need Pricing Help on This.... Digital Back

    It is a mint/as-new Leaf Aptus Digital Back 65S with 5 batteries, hood, case, sealed manuals, software, etc. (for Mamiya 645) $6000????

    I can't find any record of sales of this particular back on Ebay, and searching around the net only gives me a few from several years ago, which is outdated.

    Does anyone have any idea of the worth of this?

    Thanks,

    Josef

    Well, as an interesting sales option, your 65S is worth the following 28% discounts to someone who wants to buy a new Phase One IQ back this quarter:

    IQ 180: Aptus 65s is worth $12317 discount off $43990
    IQ 160: Aptus 65s is worth $10357 discount off $36990
    IQ 140: Aptus 65s is worth $6157 discount off $21990

    (Full disclosure, I have an Aptus 65 that I'm trading towards an IQ myself so I've been through this math!)

    If you sold it for $6k it's still a great back and for someone looking to trade up to an IQ 180 it'll save you $6317 off that price, assuming that you bought it for $6k.
