Selling my telephoto lens

I’ve realised recently, that I haven’t used my Sony SAL 70-300mm G lens for a very, very, very, long time. I honestly don’t recall the last time I used it; possibly five years? I just don’t do that kind of photography any more. Consequently, I’d like to sell it. As you can see, it’s used, it’s in really good condition, and a “G” lens, which means it produces stellar quality photos. What I have been using instead has been my Minolta 100mm f2.8 macro and Tamron 28-75mm lenses; mainly for portraiture.

What I’d really like to do is get the Lensbaby Velvet f1.8 85mm, and upgrade my Tamron; mainly for use for portraiture. The thing is, do I really want to stay with Sony? I’ve been asking myself this for about three years now, and the answer is generally “no”. So, I’m considering a transition to Canon 6d or 5d MkIII. If I do that, then I might as well dump my whole Sony-Minolta kit.

Consequently, I’d like to sell the Sony 70-300mm lens first, and see how I do in selling it, and then consider moving over to Canon from there. So, any suggestions on where I should sell? Is there anyone out there who might consider trading gear?
