Used equipment web site

Someone over on Talk Photography has spent his lockdown time creating a web site that pulls together used equipment and prices from a number of camera shops.

Posted here fyi - www.usedlens.co.uk

Despite its name the site includes details of bodies too.

I have no connection with the guy who created the site.

Now there is a great way of spending money on things I don't need... Talk about feeding the GAS!

Thanks for the link.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

Thanks John - really interesting to see this data pulled together on one sight. I spotted the rather keenly priced Sigma 85/1.4 has already gone - one of us maybe

And here's a link to the guy behind this, who appears to be interested in constructive comments > https://www.talkphotography.co.uk/threads/used-camera-lens-website.711405/

I'd been meaning to reply earlier, the month has flown by working on this site nearly every day..

Thank you all for your interest in the site, it has grown a lot in the last month with now over 45 retailers and categorisation that I can make work across the board.

Please let me know if there are any retailers I have missed, perhaps any Pentax specific ones that I'm not aware of.

Welcome to PU. It looks to me as though you have the main Pentax retailers. Is it possible to search by a specific retailer? As someone said at Talk, it might be quicker than using the retailers own site!

Thanks, I've given this some thought.

My first response is - I feel a very small minority would want to use a feature like this, and to
implement it would take me further from a clean and simple design.

But on reflection, perhaps I could add retailers as another navigation item like 'brands' - I'll start coding it now and let you know how it goes - most likely I'll be back to tell you it's implemented!

20 minutes later... it's live.

This project has really renewed my passion for problem solving as a programmer.
