I still have a d30 :P I should probably sell it.

I wouldn't even know where to start...I have a 450 still...and it is a hassle to go through all  the rigmarole of fleabay or CL...I recently got rid of a higher end body as I needed funds but if the return is limited like 100 bucks I keep it or give it to a relative.

I am looking at getting rid of the old EF 24mm f/2.8 ...dunno if it is worth listing and dealing with the bargainers. The noise it has always made autofocusing is sure to make a newbie anxious. *creech-creech* :)

This is one of my considerations, exactly...

Thinking of picking up a 400d as never had a DSLR before.

Sell the body for $100, the lenses for ~$175 or keep them if you plan to buy a newer rebel.

I sold my 400D to a friend with kit lens and 70-300 for about $200. She was happy, I was happy (for the moment).
The thing is I have missed it since. It was my first DSLR, and it served me well in both street and landscape, at beaches and on mountains. So when a friend told me he had two 350D lying around I jumped at the opportunity to take one out for a spin, for old time's sake. Adapted a couple of old M42 lenses that wouldn't work on my 5D onto it and just went out shooting. Got one or two decent shots, but it was just a nice feeling, nostalgia and the challenge of manual lenses on a system not made for them.
I'd say keep it. But I'm a sucker for nostalgia.

And it's nice to bring out at times, just to prove that you can still get great images with only 10.1mp..
