I use craigslist occasionally, but I've really had the most luck posting it on my local camera club's bulletins.  This way there are no fees, no potential craigslist murderers to deal with, and they are usually willing to pay a little bit more since it's local.

How do you guys go about selling stuff on craigslist? like for anything over 100$ I kinda worry that if it were a small expensive item like a lens, that it'd be just so easy for them toget up and walk away or claim it was theirs after you handed it to them for testing out on their camera etc.

I am careful when I deal with people, especially from craigslist.  I talk to them on the phone first.  I occasionally also carry defensive countermeasures...

I also have specified I want cash rather than check, before meeting them.

I bought and sold quite a lot of highend audio items in the past.  The deal is, the check is held till it clears, then the item is shipped.  Shipping terms agreed upon ahead of time.  My seller feedback was very good.

As someone else said, it would be nice if Canon Rumors had a classifieds marketplace forum.  Similar to Mac Rumors.
